Concrete seating ...

Pour the concrete, then, pour the drinks! No need for chairs when company calls. With poured concrete used as a base for outdoor seating, there are no worries about how they'll stand up to weather extremes! When ancient Romans wanted to seat the residents of their Empire, they used concrete. Just take a look at the Colosseum in Rome that seated thousands and was largely built of concrete. It still stands today.

Of course, concrete is a far better seating choice with some 'tushy' comfort added. Add easy-to-sew cushions, and it's a snap to personalize any concrete seating you may imagine.

By the pool, on the patio or in a field of flowers, concrete rocks!

These are a few of my favorites, but the size, shape and design are only limited by imagination.

For even more interest, a tiled, concrete seating arrangement really steals the show.
