From its invention in ancient Rome to its use by more modern Italians as "shoes", concrete's a proven material, which is why you should immediately gift your house some from Obelisk, a team of Western Mass bros who work out of an old mill bakery and create "art & objects that feed the soul", as it's obviously even heavier than that chicken soup book.
Nab a 2ft-high tapered bistro set in a soothing deep gray tint, a series of minimalist floating ledge shelves that employ a keyhole hanging system for easy installation, and a coffee table adapted from a 1960s NYC school desk, just in case you want everyone who comes over to know that Mr. Rudy is total squaresville, and that broad Ms. James has stems that don't quit.
Shine a light on your slick new stylings with a fiberglass-infused mod table lamp that dons a rectangular shade, burly candlesticks, and a hanging, pristinely sanded lamp they call the "Martini Pendant", which is also what happens when Joan Rivers starts leaning over the bar towards the end of a long night.
Awe party-goers and your mom with household accoutrements like custom-sized trays for your keys/phone/wallet, rugged soap dishes, and even a healthy assortment of bowls of bowls that're sealed w/ beeswax and "will grow richer with age", just like Joan Rivers, assuming she can keep from getting a one-way ticket to Brokesville on the vermouth express.
