Chesterfield Sofa Made from an Unexpected Material

Chesterfield Sofa Made from an Unexpected Material

Upon first inspection of this photo, I was rather surprised to see this leather chesterfield sofa sitting out in a yard, but I was smitten by the seemingly unconventional light gray hue of the leather. As it turns out, this couch isn't leather at all. Can you guess what material it's made from?

Concrete! As part of 100% Design London, Gray Concrete made this chesterfield sofa to show off the versatility of concrete. They used a mold of a real sofa (complete with bum prints) to make their version. There's even a coin stuck to one of the cushions to enhance the effect.

If you've been looking for that unique piece of lawn furniture, this sofa is available for purchase from Gray Concrete…just beware of the cost of shipping!
