The revolution is here, dear readers. In previous articles we have already looked at many great uses of concrete, such as pattern imprinted driveways and patios, concrete lamps, ornaments, bathrooms, and more. We want to see the world go concrete, one domestic item at a time, and this week we’re looking at coffee tables!
In many ways, concrete is an ideal material to make a coffee table out of. They tend to get a lot of use and abuse, what with having newspapers and other junk piled on top of them, having food and drink spilt on them, and generally having people being beastly around them. Concrete is just the material we need to stand up to this abuse! And we are not the only ones that think so.
A number of designers have recently created great concrete coffee table designs: Karacho & Bros., Jeremy Kaplan and Lofgrens being among their number! These designs have a beautiful line in stark minimalist aesthetics. Of course, the downside is that they are the work of celebrated designers, so they carry hefty price tags. But if you don’t want to splash out, why not just mould your own?
