I first noticed the concrete trend in interiors way back in November 2011 when I wrote about it over on Freshome. Since that time, concrete has increasingly been used by designers as a material for creating furniture, interior accessories and lighting for our homes. I wasn’t too sure how I felt about such an industrial material being used for residential spaces back then but as it has become more mainstream I have really grown to like the idea. The hard-wearing, utilitarian properties of concrete make it a great choice for creating a distinctly urban feel in our homes. As long as you use concrete strategically and don’t go overboard I think it can really add something quite special to your interior. What do you guys think? Not convinced? Why don’t you check out my Concrete Trend Pinterest board to see what I’ve been pinning.
