With the industrial aesthetic still going strong, it makes sense that there remain plenty of concrete homewares and furniture options to purchase. To be honest, I thought the concrete trend would have had its day by now but it’s lovely to see the material reworked lately in some fresh and surprising ways. Whether combined with metallics or wood, or produced in a rainbow of different colours, check out my top picks from what is proving to be an enduring material.
