Update Your Outdoor Space With Contemporary Concrete FurnitureApril 6, 2020
Concrete might not be the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to outdoor furniture, but the versatility and durability of this material shouldn’t be overlooked. Sleek and stylish in design, and complementary to a variety of environments, it’s hard to go wrong with concrete furniture for your deck, patio or entertaining area.
While concrete is increasingly a popular choice for modern homes, you can trust that this is a trend that won’t disappear quickly. The timeless qualities of concrete mean it will maintain longevity of both style and appearance.
The benefits of choosing concrete outdoor furniture are many, including:
- Durability: Not surprisingly, concrete furniture is built to last so is well worth the investment. Concrete furniture is particularly beneficial for those who have kids or pets, or those whose furniture may be particularly exposed to the elements. For this reason, it’s a popular choice for holiday homes and baches here in New Zealand. As a natural product, concrete can develop small cracks and fine lines, however you can feel confident this won’t affect the integrity of your furniture.
- Versatility: There’s nothing plain about concrete furniture – in fact, it is practically a blank canvas for you to add your own twist with cushions, table runners and table-top homewares.
- Adaptability: Concrete furniture fits in in practically every setting. From modern, minimalist homes, to bush-enclosed backyards. It works well alongside other natural materials, such as metal and wood.
- Appearance: Concrete is a natural material, and therefore will respond somewhat to the environment in which it’s left in – however this only adds to its raw, rustic charm and is all a part of the appeal.
So, how can you use concrete furniture in your own outdoor space? Consider these additions to your backyard, patio or balcony:
Dine in style
A concrete dining table is a strong, bold statement for the outdoor area of any home or workplace. Pair with concrete benches, or choose dining chairs in contrasting materials such as metal, wood or wicker If you’re worried about mobility, don’t!
Our range of concrete furniture is made from a concrete resin composite, which means it ‘behaves’ like concrete but is actually much lighter. This is great if you have a balcony where weight may be an issue, or if you’d like to have the table inside.
Mix up your modular concrete
A box concrete center chair is a stand-out addition to a modular outdoor lounge suite, or a statement on its own. Adding a modern twist to your outdoor setting, you can pair it with other pieces from the Box Concrete Seating Collection. Comfort is guaranteed without compromising on style with the addition of a Sunbrella cushion for both the seat and back. This is also your opportunity to also add your own flair to your outdoor setting with throw pillows and cushions.
