TOUGH LOVE: 6 TIMES CONCRETE FURNITURE TOTALLY WOWED US

Hello, Concrete 

It might be a little bit rough around the edges, but humble concrete is absolutely having a moment right now. Concrete is as hot with the biggest designers as it is on the high street and you can find it everywhere in interiors. From the floor to the ceiling, no room of the house is immune from this trend that works for minimalists, industrial lovers, rustic fans and even traditional and boho aficionados. It’s time to make some concrete plans.

 

A Composite with Benefits

What’s to love about concrete? Well, to begin with, everything. It’s sustainable, affordable, easy to clean and hits the sweet spot between warmth and austere, inspirational and relatable. What’s more, is looks positively dreamy alongside warm woods, gorgeous pastel tones (did someone say blush pink?), it makes metallic accents sing and greenery really pop. Sign us up!

 

Making it work

You can make this versatile composite work virtually anywhere. Pair concrete furniture with high-gloss whites, gold and vintage rugs and you have a chic, high-end boho look. Whereas placing concrete décor alongside moody tones in a darker palette with raw, exposed materials and metals and you have achieved instant industrial style. If you want to bring the trend to your space, try one statement piece to keep balance with your existing décor to avoid it all feeling too severe.

Concrete pendants in the kitchen? Love it! Far from the heaviness you might associate with concrete, these gorgeous pendants appear light as a feather and bring a little rustic edge to an otherwise polished kitchen. The featured wood of the stools and kitchen décor add warmth and are expertly balanced to create the perfect kitchen.

When it comes to concrete in kitchens, it’s everything AND the kitchen sink! This divine kitchen is all clean lines exuding an elegance and charm that belies the humble origins of the key material: concrete. Its water-resistant nature and inherent toughness make concrete an absolute dream in the kitchen. The benchtop with built-in sink and cooktop represent a victory of style and function.

You’d never guess from a first glance but these ultra-chic sinks, in shade of the moment blush pink, are actually made of concrete as are the large format concrete floor tiles in the more conventional grey. This Scandi-style bathroom shows just how versatile concrete really is, not to mention how absolutely dreamy it looks with complementary gold tapware, pink tiles and a marble wall to pull it all together.

This glam corner is probably the last place you would expect to see a couple of statement pieces in edgy concrete. But these gorgeous stools bring more than a little rugged luxury to this understated nook. The almost organic form of the stools juxtaposed with the classic chair and the ethereal draping curtains create an almost magical space. Concrete top dining tables are also a trend you don't want to miss - warm wood and cool concrete make quite the dream team.

 

5. Walls

This warehouse in the rainforest was built from only four materials: concrete, steel, glass and merbau timber, but the hero of the build is clearly concrete. The vastness of these walls could seem overwhelming if not for the texture of the concrete which means that every wall is unique. Merbau timber softens the smooth concrete and the greenery really pops against the grey walls. Industrial perfection in the most unlikely place.

 

6. Floors

This room gets the marriage of concrete with dark moody hues and warm wood just right. But, thanks to the styling, the results are more of a playful family space rather than the industrial, modern styles people generally associate with concrete flooring. A natural jute rug provides a soft landing for little feet and the perfect vignette with some striking details and a simple paper lantern are the key finishing touches.
