Trend Watch: Concrete

Originally adopted by the achingly cool loft owners of Manhattan, the trend in industrial design has become the ultimate in urban sophistication. However, you don’t have to live in a converted warehouse or build furniture out of pallet crates to make your own home feel a little more edgy.

Cue concrete. Whilst you might have reservations about introducing a material previously reserved for cement blocks and roadside engineers into your home, we can assure you the sleek design of our concrete pieces can create a luxe feel in the blink of an eye.

From pavement drab to contemporary cool, concrete is the perfect way to achieve an urban look in your home. The trend for using humble materials – such as concrete and plyboard – in innovative ways also gives you the freedom to experiment with new textures.

Styling Tip:
For a playful design approach, use a concrete effect to create a tromple l’oeil, or add copper tones to achieve a luxe feel.
