Swoon: Concrete

Over the past year, my brilliant artist of a brother has been working...and creating beautiful concrete counter tops, planters, bowls, tables, coffee drips, and other fantastic things. Watching him progress with this art form has opened my eyes to a world of possibilities that the medium of concrete has to offer. Up until now, the word concrete brought to mind a parking lot or sidewalk, whereas now I see a beautiful alternative to more common materials. I am amazed at how versatile it is; it can look contemporary or traditional, sleek or cozy, but my favorite quality is its natural textural.

It is super durable (duh), which makes it a perfect candidate for kitchen counters, fireplace hearths, and even bathtubs.
