Ever since decorative concrete hit the interior decor scene, there has been a serious aesthetic attached to its demeanour. Straightforward, simple lines and flat finishes is what we would describe it as, but not anymore! In Concrete Aesthetics, texture, design and art go hand in hand with concrete's raw, simple and rough nature. These aspects then come together to bring alive any setting!
Utility is number one. The Gujarat located brand's philosophy is to use concrete to handcraft everyday products that are contemporary and sophisticated but not limited to being just decorative. So think of everything that you will need on a regular basis -- desk organisers, mini planters, bathroom essentials, coasters and even lights as part of Concrete Aesthetics' collections. Texture comes second and the clocks (table & wall) by far are our favourites in this respect. Fashioned to mimic waves of the oceans, these pieces boast of movement, despite being associated with something as sturdy as concrete!
The marbled effect desk organisers are beautiful too and so are the 3D ring shape tea light candle holders. They help you declutter in the most seamless fashion, while looking like a piece of art! Angular, geometrical and rounded edges is what the brand plays with while sticking to greys and whites as colours for the most part. These are heavy duty pieces, resistant to temperature change, breakage and other timely damage -- an investment for your home if you ask us!
