Structurally strong and spatially dominate; concrete furnishings have a reputation for claiming a space yet there’s a softer more subtle side to this heavy material. An intriguing paradox and perhaps the singular reason responsible for its sustained popularity, concrete continues to be a fixture found in many modern homes. The minimalist design trend that emerged at the start of the century gave way to clean lines, smooth textures, and cool tones giving spaces a raw aesthetic that felt authentic and peaceful, a grounded style concept that, to many, contrasts our daily lives.
Concrete can be used for a variety of furnishings from dining tables to planters. These statement pieces make a bold impact but also provide a neutral palette to build upon. Teak Warehouse has a wide selection of concrete pieces, whether you want to make it the focal point of your space or are looking to experiment with accent pieces, they will serve their purpose with something for any type of style concept. Let’s take a look at how you can merge your home and personal style sense through a modern approach to your exteriors home décor.
To make a significant impact on your space, opting for a concrete dining table will anchor the exterior dining space. One of the most appealing qualities that concrete has to offer is the symmetry and geometry it provides structurally that brings balance and order creating a serene calmness. For large spaces, the Raw Concrete Rectangular Dining Table can sit up to 8 people but if you have a smaller space the Blok Round Concrete Dining Table or the Blok Square Concrete Dining Table make beautiful additions to a homes exterior.
Perhaps an overall concrete look would overwhelm your space you can instead use the material for your accent pieces. Grade-a teak club chairs and the Blok Square Concrete Coffee Table mixes materials that highlight each other qualities while taking something traditional and giving it a modern accent. Side tables can also really elevate a space, bringing it into modernity by placing the Raw Concrete Side Table (Square) to contrast an all wicker sectional.
Concrete planters are a refined and sophisticated option for many homes. This subtle décor option combines nature and metropolis for the ultimate modern aesthetic. Using deep hued green plants like Boxwood Hedge or Lingustrum that contrasts the cool grey tone of the Raw Concrete Flare Pillars or the Raw Concrete Planters (Square) that sits low to the ground makes a compelling combination. Scattering concrete planters around your homes exterior will bring a sense of contemporary design, making it feel updated and current.
Modern living can be achieved in small pieces with accents or on a larger scale with an all over concrete look.
