Tao Concrete is a design and fabrication shop based in Tempe, Arizona. The company’s concrete and wood planter bench recently caught our eye, and now we’re thinking that every piece of furniture should come with an option for adding a spot of greenery.

Above: The concrete wood planter can be used indoors or out. Perfect for a spot against your garden wall, the bench is 16 inches tall, 14 inches wide, and 86 inches wide. 

Above: Benches are available in a choice of natural gray or white concrete bases with tops in light hickory or dark walnut wood.


Above: A bench in dark walnut and white concrete. Plant and rocks not included with purchase.

Above: The Concrete/Wood Planter Bench is available for $1,300 from Tao Concrete’s Etsy shop.
