The industrial finish is no longer considered too gloomy and cold for an inviting outdoor space. Check out these photos for inspiration.
Outdoor furniture made of concrete has become trendy. At first, it can seem like a harsh, gray addition to an outdoor space. But a touch of concrete—like in tables or pavers—can actually offer a very contemporary vibe.
You don’t want all cement furnishings outside; that would be too heavy of a look. But concrete can offer great contrast when mixed with wicker and teak furniture. If you want to try out this look, opt for a round-top cement table, side stool, or a furniture piece with concrete accents, such as a concrete table top with wooden legs. The cement look can also be used for outdoor firepits.
All of these items individually can add a contemporary look to upgrade your outdoor style. Get some inspiration from designers who posted at the design website Houzz.
