A soft and subtle approach to capturing that chic industrial look through concrete interiors.

Concrete has gone from an all-around craze to simply a home décor essential. A stunning piece of concrete furniture, or even a statement fixture, can really lay the foundation to a contemporary yet sleek aesthetic (pun intended). With so many designers taking the medium from structural to artistic, there’s becoming quite the market for inventive takes on this timeless material.

Seriously, we can’t get enough of the glamorous industrial look — yes, that’s a thing! For instance, who couldn’t adore this wood versus concrete dining table by SlabsbyDesign (pictured above)? While we don’t all have a trendy industrial loft to call home, we turn to interior design for capturing this popular yet functional aesthetic. And, as we mentioned, thanks to talented creatives there’s now unexpected, usual and all around perfect ways to incorporate concrete into any room.

We’ve asked the internet for some inspiration and here’s what we’ve come up with it! Some of these you can shop via, others are simply to get your creative building techniques churning. Enjoy!
