Rock Solid Design in the Home
Beauty may well be in the eye of the beholder, but style is something that we wish everyone had. Particularly when it comes to our homes. Here are some original and interesting interior design accessories cast in concrete that could give your home a stylish edge.
Not Just for the Patio
According to Gore Vidal:
“Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.”
Creating a truly stylish home requires bravery. You have to be willing to look a little beyond Ikea and B&Q for your inspiration, and you need the confidence to trust yourself to know that what feels great is often also what looks great. If you think concrete in the home should be restricted strictly to your patio, it’s time to think again. Concrete is increasingly making it’s way onto interior designers’ “must have” lists of creative materials. These new concrete cabinet or drawer knobs from Kast are the ultimate in stylish industrial chic.
Handcrafted and Unique
Every one of these handcrafted cabinet or drawer knobs is unique. They contain up to 10% recycled materials and you don’t don’t have to worry about whether concrete is a suitable material for interior design. Every one is treated with an eco-friendly sealer that is food, kitchen and bath safe.
The Kast Story
The manufacturer, Kast, is based in the US and the designs are the work of Kast’s owner Grey Hensey. Hensey began working with sand casting when he was a student. After using the technique for a project he developed a passion for using concrete as a material. After some years working in furniture design for mass markets he decided to follow his inspiration.
They’re so new that we haven’t been able to source any UK suppliers of Kast’s products yet, but if you would like to get some of these distinctive and beautiful furniture details for your home, go to the Kast website.
