We absolutely love an elevated patio moment, but today we want to explore concrete’s place inside the living space. One of the things we love about our concrete selection, is that it’s, by nature, a minimal material, but it makes such an impact within the space. A concrete dining table can be the perfect, stately anchoring piece without conflicting with any existing designs at play. Concrete is at home in modern, contemporary, minimalist and maximalist spaces. It’s all about how you choose to work around the concrete.
Decorating with Concrete is all about balance
Because concrete is naturally a cool-toned material, we need to look for ways to bring in warmth around it. We love our best-selling Elcor Dining Table in this warm-toned, neutral environment. Wood floors and shelves help to warm up the room, while a natural-fiber light fixture brightens the space.
Balance isn't all about tones, it's also important to consider how the silhouettes of our furniture pieces play off of one another. In this example our curved back velvet Dauphine Side Chairs contrast with the clean, sharp lines of the Elcor Dining Table. Neither piece takes away from the other!
Finally let's discuss material. Because concrete is a hard material, both in touch and appearance, pairing it with a soft material such as the velvet provides delicateness to help soften the look. We want our space to feel inviting, yet elevated.
Sticking to a neutral palette? We absolutely love our Ivory Concrete selection for a super modern, minimalistic space.
