Concrete and steel are two of the most industrial materials you can use. They’re found at nearly every construction site, and when used in interior design, they’re thought of as adding industrial and rustic elements to a space.
An easy way to introduce the two materials is to combine them in the form of a table. Side tables, dining tables, and coffee tables all offer an opportunity to use concrete and steel together to create a feel that’s both contemporary and industrial.
Here are 10 examples of tables made from concrete and steel to give you some inspiration for industrializing your home.
