Concrete isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about furniture. If you like your side tables in a minimalist design, with enough toughness to brave the outdoor elements and survive your rowdy friends who come by the pad, though, this Industrial Concrete Side Table sounds like the piece to make you pull out the wallet and shove money at the iPhone screen.
We have no idea how heavy it is and how much that concrete will damage the hardwood floors, so it’s probably best to put this in an outdoor part of the house, where it can show off its ability to shrug off sun, rain, wind, sleet, or snow. Use it to hold drinks, food, and any supplies while you lounge by the pool, sit in the porch, or chill in the patio, then leave it there because the darn thing is made of concrete and probably too heavy to carry anywhere else.
The Industrial Concrete Side Table measures 22 x 16 x 22 inches (w x d x h), with the top and legs made from hand-cast, solid concrete. A removable iron shelf is set up near the bottom of the legs, giving you an extra space to store gardening tools (if you have it in the backyard), pool toys (if you have it by the pool), or a shotgun (if you have it by the porch and you don’t like visitors coming by). Disclaimer: I don’t like visitors coming by.
Available from West Elm, the Industrial Concrete Side Table is priced at $399.
