In recent years, exposed concrete has evolved from a purely architectural and industrial material to a source of design inspiration for interiors. Floors, walls, furniture, and home items increasingly feature the urban material, bringing textures and finishes to unexpected locations. Timber, marble, copper, and brass may all be used to soften concrete’s modernist characteristics.

Concrete hanging shelves, candle holders, and plant pots are great ways to get started.
