Wood Grain Concrete Pavers

August 28, 2013 | Shopping, Wabi Sabi

It seems inevitable that as I finish up a cobblestone patio at my own home, I come across these pavers.  Had my cobbles not come with a little bit of history and some sentimentality, I would be hard pressed not to sell them on and opt instead for these wood grained concrete pavers.

I mean really- the warmth and charm of aged teak but the stability and ease of installation of concrete?  What is not to love?  And the pattern options are endless.  I particularly love that top image with pebbles inside open squares that are framed by the pavers (even though I am sure it would create a weedy hassle). But the basket weave is really nice too.

They aren’t terribly expensive either ($5.65 for each 8″ x 15.5″ paver) – except that the only place I can find them is through Big Grass Bamboo in San Antonio, Texas (which is far from here and the shipping will sure double the cost).

I’m imagining a very wabi sabi sort of space, or something more exotic and tropical like in these images.  But what would you use them for?

What an amazing suggestion. I love the inspirations and ideas I find in your posts.

Wow, amazing! I love these. I agree, too bad I did not see these before we put down travertine, although I love that too. Thanks for sharing.

Such a great idea for a porch, thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks Charlie — it is lovely to see you here
