modern monday: concrete + cement



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.

Recently I won a fiberglass-reinforced concrete Kreten Candelabra from Souda (thanks Instagram contest!). It's a strong statement piece which sits on the mantle in our living room, and 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, so naturally it sparked a new interest in concrete.

Here are some designs I’m really fond of right now. Got any favorites? Feel free to share them.

Happy modern Monday!

  1. Batya, I love this roundup! Steve and I have been shopping for lighting for the kitchen and the dining room, and I am absolutely smitten with these concrete hanging lamps! I am so sorry we didn't keep our lunch date on Tuesday, but I'm so looking forward to our next visit, come blizzard or high waters! XO!
