Concrete (that durable composite material made from a mixture of broken stone or gravel, sand, cement, and water) and cement (the main ingredient in concrete) have been popping up everywhere in the design world...from lighting to tiling to jewelry, and even inspired wallpaper.
A few months ago I won a fiberglass-reinforced concrete Kreten Candelabra from Souda (thanks Instagram contest!). The heavy statement piece, which sits on the mantle in our living room, is strong and raw appearance. It provides a nice contrast from my other tabletop and décor objects, which tend to be softer and lighter. The Kreten is always a topic of conversation and it sparked my new interest in concrete.
Here are some designs I’m really fond of right now. Have you got any favorites? Feel free to share them.
