Another photo of my first concrete furniture piece and concrete light / The light was board formed black concrete / This was when I learned that trying to melt foam out of concrete was a bad idea / If you want to learn from my (many) mistakes, check out ConcreteDesignSchool.com #concrete #concretelove #concretetable #concretefurniture #brandongore #hardgoods #hg #goredesignco #handcrafted #madeintheusa

Throwback to the very first piece of furniture I ever made – a concrete + steel conference table and a concrete light. I didn’t know what I didn’t know, which was a good thing back then. We all start somewhere and this was my starting line. I would approach it differently today but I can appreciate the honest imperfectness of these pieces, and the lessons learned were invaluable. #concrete #concretelove #concretefurniture #concretetable #steelisreal #brandongore #goredesignco #handmade #madeinusa #hardgoods #hg

“The American Dream is still alive out there, and hard work will get you there. You don’t necessarily need to have an Ivy League education or to have millions of dollars startup money.
