About Concrete Designs
FUNCTIONAL. CONCRETE. ART.
Simply put, this is what we do at Concrete Designs.
About Concrete Designs & Our Creative Design Process
Concrete Designs is a custom concrete company, and we make furniture custom for your home using our material of choice—versatile, beautiful, durable concrete! First, everything our artisans create has a function. While we make custom concrete countertops, concrete furniture, concrete overlays, and architectural pieces that have a functional purpose, our creations are so much more than their assigned task.
Custom Concrete as Art
A hand-crafted custom concrete countertop, for instance, is a conversation piece and a work of art that can be appreciated in unique ways by different people. Art is personal and has the ability to tell a story. Our pieces can tell a story about your style and your personality. For example, a kitchen island with edges cut and hewn to resemble unfinished stone might indicate that the owner of the kitchen appreciates geology in its natural state, wild and (literally) rough around the edges. On the other hand, a countertop polished smooth and infused with veins of paint imitating the look of marble could indicate someone who appreciates opulence and luxury.
Every piece has a story to tell—the story of how and why it was crafted. The character of the piece reveals information about the form it was created in, reveling in the tiniest imperfection in the form materials. As you touch the concrete, you can feel the pride of the artisans as each piece of concrete was placed by hand, and you can feel the softness of the piece as it was smoothed by weathered, caring hands while each detail was being watched over with discerning eyes.
Why Concrete is a Unique Medium
Our medium is concrete. Every piece to ever leave our studio is concrete, one of the oldest and simplest building materials on earth. Concrete is unique in that it exists in two states, fluid and solid. In the fluid stage, concrete can infiltrate even the finest details in the materials it is cast against, then preserve those details for all time as a solid surface. Moreover, though concrete is relatively new to the design industry, there are a number of different finishes it can achieve, including polished finish, stained finish, and salt finish - and available for possible use in funiture design as well.
The concrete that we use at Concrete Designs is special. Not only does it make a one-of-a-kind piece of art, but the concrete mix itself is special. Custom precast concrete has been developed over recent decades to allow for ultra-thin, ultra-strong castings. This allows us to create highly detailed, lightweight concrete countertops, concrete sinks, and concrete furniture. You will have a difficult time finding another concrete countertop company or concrete furniture company that can create the custom pieces we are able to craft.
Every Custom Concrete Design Has a Story
Every single concrete countertop, concrete sink, kitchen island, or piece of custom concrete furniture we create is a piece of art. Each piece is unique, has its own character, and its own story. Artisans spend countless hours building, mixing, casting, and working each project by hand.
We are so passionate about what we do and spend so much time on every piece we create that we develop a deep attachment to our projects, allowing us to recall many details about each piece of art we have created. Even if we are creating identical pieces - between the varying characteristics of the mold, to the atmosphere it is created in, to the way the concrete is finished - can all lead to patterns and colorations as unique as a fingerprint.
Why Is Custom Concrete Furniture Art?
We fell in love with the natural textures of concrete and the exquisite beauty of concrete surfaces. We love that you can stain concrete or have it polished and mold it into nearly any shape you can imagine. In addition to the texture options, there is almost no material out there as strong and versatile as concrete. Even a plain concrete surface exudes charm, but the possibilities of concrete designs are endless. Also, because it is so durable and long-lasting, it is more environmentally friendly than materials that lack the resilience of concrete. Therefore, custom concrete furniture is art because it is one of a kind, designed with an individual vision that isn't likely to be replicated.
Whether we are working on fireplace surrounds, outdoor kitchens, architectural designs, concrete surfaces like tables or counters, or other types of decorative concrete designs, we love how each piece comes out unique and lovely. We do an excellent job crafting furniture that is personalized to you, and we do it all at an affordable price.
