I fell in love with these durable outdoor pendant lamps from one of my favorite designers, Rainer Mutsch. Crafted from hand-molded fiber-cement shells, they hang from the same rope used for sailboats. They have pure style that can, of course, go indoors too.
The hand-wrapped design of Rainer Mutsch's gorgeous Palma planters adds a wonderful bit of art to any outdoor space. I love how the rugged fiber cement material contrasts with plants, and they look just as great indoors as they do out.
Inspired by the geodesic dome, this hand-cast cement planter is pure organic architecture for the garden. I'd fill it with something colorful or with succulents. A grouping of them would be stunning.
I'm loving this outdoor glass fiber–reinforced concrete cube with moss insets on the top surface. It's would be be great for either indoor or outdoor use, as it's lightweight and the moss needs no upkeep except an occasional misting.
This concrete and wood planter bench has a wonderful blend of industrial and organic elements. For both exterior or interior spaces, it's a good example of a multifunctional piece that is both furniture and a planter. It would be especially great for smaller spaces where one piece needs to do the work of two.
Oh what a delicious bit of bling this hand-painted concrete can bring to any decor! I love the contrasting roughness and gold color of the planter's edge, which is sealed so that it's perfectly weather resistant and ready for outdoors.
Hello, birdies. Here is a contemporary concrete and wood abode for modern feathered friends. What do I love? The magnetic lid that can be easily removed for cleaning and the water-based acrylic sealer that allows it to be left outdoors all year-round.
A study in cool contemporary contrasts, these stools mix the look of soft fabric with the strength of concrete. The innovative Stitched Concrete stools by designer Florian Schmid are cleverly made by folding cement-impregnated fabric supported with a PVC backing, so they are weather and UV resistant, lightweight, and easily moved indoors or out.
Think big with this concrete and stainless steel dining table that's a design statement indoors or out. Its lightweight concrete top sits on a base of two stainless steel legs, but the element I love most is the center well that can hold river stones or plants or — get creative!
Talk about funk and function. Jonas Bohlin's Concrete Jungle table is ready to party. Its top concrete disk sits on a black painted steel base. Place some candles into the white aquarium gravel (that comes with the table), then light it all up and enjoy the glow.
I am so intrigued by designer Stefan Zwicky's concrete homage to the iconic Corbusier chair. This really brings a modern classic outdoors. It's not for every space, but it would certainly add a cool detail to some landscapes.
How fun is this concrete garden furniture? The creative minds at the Parisian agency 5.5 Designers came up with a series of modular concrete pieces that incorporate planters of varying sizes and configurations. The furniture is intended to go anywhere you can plant it.
Anna Badur's bench delightfully fools the eye with its "soft" concrete seat. It even has buttonholes that Badur says she's adjusted to the human anatomy to provide comfort. I love how the designer has thought it all through. It has drainage holes in case it rains, and the powder-coated steel frame and legs add a dash of color.
I love to warm up by the flames of an outdoor fire. Imagine a group sitting around this one that's made of durable composite concrete. It's both good looking and practical. The fire sits 10 inches off of the ground, above vertical slots that allow drainage and let in air to feed the flames.
These funky hollow-cast concrete tree stumps make fabulous outdoor side tables or extra seating. If you want to bring nature inside, just add the optional sliders and roll the Knotty Stool indoors.
