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?
