Concrete Is Still Hot: 10 Beautiful Designs to Prove It!

The concrete trend has been with us for more than five years. Part of me is quite surprised that it has not yet faded away to join all the other micro-trends on the “trends that was” pile. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy the use of concrete or cement in decorative items, homeware and furniture. I just thought that people would have grown tired of it by now. Not that I have, I still love it as much as the first time I saw beautiful and clever concrete-y décor (not to mention those clever cement DIYs).

I suppose the use of concrete in interior design and decorative objects developed as the Industrial home style flourished. Further contributing to concrete’s popularity, is its versatility and availability. We now see both concrete and cement being used in unexpected, clever and out-of-the-box ways.

I also feel there has been a “refinement” in the way concrete is used by product designers. The general look is far more chic and sophisticated. This is evident in the various concrete products that are currently on our local homeware store shelves. We have selected ten amazing examples of local concrete décor products to show you below.

Well this definitely proofs that concrete is way more that just some passing fad…
