Top 10 Concrete Items For Your Home

Words

We’re always on the lookout for new items we can welcome into our homes. Besides ceramic and copper, one of our favorite materials in design is concrete. The raw finish seems to give pieces a minimal look, which makes it a great addition to any living room. From larger products, like a chair and vase, to tiny items, such as a tissue box and bookend, we’ve compiled a list of design pieces that are all made of concrete. See more products in our shop.

CONCRETE CHAIR

Lyon Beton is a French design studio specializing in everything concrete. Their product range includes smaller design objects as well as furniture pieces.
