What is the ideal material for modern garden furniture? Concrete of course! It’s sturdy, durable, sculptural and looks very contemporary. Famous designers use it to create amazing chairs, tables, lamps, cloakrooms, benches and shelves. I like uncovered concrete, highlighted with all its shades and imperfections. This furniture is impervious to rain and wind and looks amazing with steel or glass for a lighter and more modern look. One of the most impressive pieces here is the Stitching Concrete stool by Florian Schmid, in which the canvas is folded and shaped before it is dipped in water and cured. We’ve put together more cool outdoor concrete pieces to make your patio or deck as stylish as possible. Let yourself be inspired!
