22 design pieces proving concrete is anything but boring

It started as a high-end trend, but by now concrete has arrived in high street stores around the world, taking it from its life as a classic construction material to the realm of interior design.

And who said concrete has to be boring anyways?

You may only be able to have it in shades of gray, but that’s what made the material so interesting to designers in the first place – especially since it’s easy to combine with other materials, including the immensely popular metals.

Combined with its durability and adaptability, it creates a blank canvas for a vast number of objects, from furnishings to accessories.
