A Concrete Sofa That Looks Like it’s Upholstered

While this sofa might look like an upholstered leather one, it’s actually made from molded concrete to look that way. Edinburgh, Scotland based FourEightEight makes the two-seater Concrete Sofa appear to have the same lines and texture as a similar sofa in actual leather would. Instead, its durable concrete material means it can live outside year round!


The design looks so incredibly real because it was molded from an actual leather sofa giving it its authentic details. The only time you’ll be able to tell it’s not leather is when you sit down expecting it to be soft, so you might want to warn your friends.


The Concrete Sofa has two stand options available – the standard metal one with legs and the non-standard which is designed for soft ground like grass. It also comes in your choice of 14 colors or you can request a custom color if you wish.


The sofa comes sealed and with holes so it will drain most of the water out, making it a great option for outdoor use.






Psst: If you’re looking for a more traditional design, here’s another concrete sofa that looks upholstered!
