Raw materials create a rough luxe style that's relaxed and effortlessly cool, so why not introduce the look to your space with a concrete pendant? There's a host of styles to suit, from all out industrial to those that combine sculptural shapes with glamorous finishes.
We've rounded up the latest concrete pendants to give you the low down on the latest lights with urban attitude.
Bring in a hip hotel vibe with one that mixes a textured surface with a warm gilded interior or take a tougher stance with geometric edges and glass. Those that mix warm materials offer up a softer vibe that works well in most home schemes.
Stick to a palette of materials, but use lighting in different ways, all over the house to create continuity, variety and interest. Go bold with three pendants in a row over a kitchen island, say, hang a pair either side of the bed or bring industrial edge to a living room by suspending a central concrete lightshade.
Livingetc loves the industrial vibe so find more ideas here.
