Grey is the new black - Why concrete furniture is on trend

Say goodbye to generic granite bench tops, woeful wooden tables, sickly ceramic basins and feeble fireplaces, concrete furniture is the latest in trending statement pieces winning the hearts of homeowners, renovators and interior designers alike.


When you think of concrete, an image of industrial building material probably pops into your head. The concept of concrete furniture is sometimes met with confusion. How can concrete blend and accentuate home styling? For years, the industrial look in homes has been popular because there’s something undeniably appealing about the rustic yet chic appearance of exposed utilitarian objects. The organic beauty of a polished concrete surface adorning your dining room or as a stand out piece in the bathroom is something that can provide a modern update to your home.  


In a saturated market where endless furniture options are available concrete furniture offers that distinctive point of difference. There are only so many chips in wood, cracks in glass and stains on ceramic that is deemed tolerable and functional. Concrete Nations furniture is low maintenance, stain proof and crack resistant. Cue the ‘AMENS’.


There are little restrictions in concrete furniture design. The motto at Concrete Nation is ‘Inspire Design Create’ where you are limited only by your imagination. Concrete Nation can design custom kitchen bench tops, long bars in restaurants, basins and vanities and is the home of Australia’s only freestanding custom concrete bathtub.


Not sure how to style your concrete piece? Combining concrete with timber creates a subtle and homely feel while pairing it with steel and offer a modern industrial edge.


Concrete Nation’s workshop and showroom is located at 5 Alex Fisher Drive Burleigh Heads. For more information email
