10 On-Trend Designs in Concrete

When you think of concrete, your mind jumps to architecture, construction or the cracked pavement we walk on every day, right? Since modern design has discovered the untapped beauty in concrete’s raw, edgy nature, long gone are the days when we considered it a mundane building material. This unexpected material is becoming a key ingredient for industrial-style lighting and accessories for all kinds of interiors. Here are 10 of our favorite products that fit this trend.

JWDA Concrete Table Lamp by Menu

The JWDA Concrete Table Lamp offers a subtle approach to the more domineering side of concrete. The base is rather small in comparison to its glass shade, but nabs all attention with a dressy brass knob to dim the light just right.

Karam Pendant by Tech Lighting

Although hollowed out on the inside, the Karam Pendant by Tech Lighting is a hefty concrete light indeed. We love how the concentric carvings on the outside give it a unique texture, and the overall chunkiness makes a statement in a space.

Cyrus Cemento Floor Lamp by In-Es Art Design

Designer Ocilunam doesn’t subscribe to the heaviness of concrete…he just recreates it with paint and resin for the In-Es Art Design Cemento Collection. Take the Cyrus Floor Lamp: this handy little spotlight creates splashes of color with a shell that mimics concrete. It’s industrial, artisanal and functional all at the same time.

Circular Bowl by Menu

Sure, the Circular Bowl by Menu is self-explanatory about its shape, but it is pretty opaque when it comes to the awesomeness of its material…literally, it’s opaque. The solid concrete disk resembles a flattened mortar (minus the pestle), making this the perfect vessel and display for objects, food, or just standing alone as a sculptural accent.

Willmann Vase by Menu

Glass and concrete may seem like polar opposites—one hardy, one delicate—but the juxtaposition of the two give floral arrangements a bit of edginess. If you’re a purist, lose the glass base altogether and just use the concrete topper as the vase.
