29/10/2019 - Concrete-based wallcoverings are conquering spaces and atmospheres, architects and designers, and the resto f the world. Experts say they are here to stay for a long time. The reason behind this trend belongs to the unique properties of the organic matter that is concrete. At the moment, this matter, created by nature and man, is being appealing for it’s trendy concrete look but also for it’s capabilities to became a faithful copy of the most diverse materials and elements from Nature and Industry.

In Portugal, there is a popular expression that says that “material is always right”, which reflects the unquestionable authority of material regardless of man's desire or needs. When we think of concrete and it’s presence in architecture and interior design, we conclude that the authority changes it’s side due to the infinite potential of this material can be shaped by the desires and needs of man. The world of wallcovering is increasingly fascinated by this matter for its flexibility, dynamism and sustainability but also for it’s natural presence in spaces, the great accomplice of industrial design style.

2020 is the year when concrete will be the main player, say Kate Lawrence, interior designer and founder of Kate Lawrence Interiors. But, beside the prediction of the interior designer, there were already strong signs of the growing trend of this material. At this moment, the natural element and unprocessed matter, such as wood and concrete, have conquered the living space of a house, giving it a sensory and elegant atmosphere. But the power of concrete-based wallcovering is that, in addition to keeping up with the natural and rustic design trends, for incorporate elements such as wood, stone or marble, it also follows the boldest design trends like the three-dimensionality and acoustic exploration through wall relie.

This is a victory time for concrete-based coatings. Although concrete has always been a vital subject in the Architecture and Construction sector, this classic building material has always been referred to as “gross” and “dull”, “inhuman”. The growth of industrial interior design and rustic decor and the growing awareness of the importance of using more sustainable materials in the architecture and design sector have made this eco-friendly material, made up of cement, water and a stone aggregate, into the foundation material of wallcovering.

When state-of-the-art technology exploits the advanced technical properties of this material, the sky is the limit and the world of design and architecture is enriched with multiple textures, colors and shapes. Interior and exterior spaces and atmospheres are enriched by new forms of charisma and elegance and this is a timeless trend.
