Hi there, we actually don't know where the table and chairs are from. The clients selected the furniture after the project was complete. We generally do not get involved in furniture selection unless we have been asked to design it.

Usually on concrete floors, an acid stain is applied to the surface of the standard grey concrete flooring surface. The artisans use a paint sprayer, and apply the stains in a mist over the top layer of the concrete. We usually finish it off with a sealer and waxes to protect the surface and produce the desired amount of sheen.

Concrete is a great material for flooring - we embrace and look forward to variations, irregularities, and the patina that develops with wear over time so the cracks and chips (if repaired and filled) can add to the 'beauty marks' on your floor. Concrete gives you great longevity, wear, ages beautifully, and is the same temperature as tile or natural stone.

added by Becky Harris ...
One stunning design detail in the space is this laser-cut wood panel. The design was swiped from the clients' collection of Scandinavian hand-painted ceramic tiles.

You could try emailing architect directly for more info.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The clients wanted each space in the new wing to perform multiple functions. This large room has places for playing and listening to music, dining, and even a lounge area for reading. "They really wanted to blur the distinctions between room uses," says Crawford.
Becky Harris added this to 5 Spectacular Australian Homes
1. A contemporary addition in Sydney. This home's new wing was designed by Sam Crawford Architects. This open, light-filled space serves several purposes, including music room, art gallery, library and dining room.

it’s a good idea to plan on the look you want for your floor well ahead of starting the build. The concrete pour happens early on and if you want to achieve certain finishes, they might need to be done at this stage. Underfloor heating is installed at this stage, too, so needs be planned for.
