Concrete buffet can be ordered in any combination of gray & charcoal concrete. One option shown on pictures below.


DR CBU Contemporary Concrete Buffet has a 2″ thick slab supported on two pedestals at its short ends. It was inspired by my concrete bench, but this one is just slightly taller. The concrete slab, because of a 80″ span, has post tension rods running along the edges.

All concrete surfaces are sealed with 4 coats of high-performance sealer available in semi-gloss or matte finish. The sealer is a penetrable type and provides an excellent stain, acid, and scratch resistance of concrete surfaces.

The entire concrete buffet in listed below dimensions weighs approximately 850 lbs with its weight distributed between 3 elements:

  1. Concrete buffet slab 18″ deep x 2″ thick x 94″ long ~ 200 lbs
  2. Two 14″ x 14″ x 39″ supporting pedestals (partially hollow) – 2 x 325 lbs

It is critical to assemble this concrete buffet on a flat and leveled surface for the two pedestals to properly support the slab and maintain its appeal.

We recommend help of at least three people capable of lifting over 300 lbs when opening the crate and moving this buffet at your location.  Also a utility/hand truck or dolly capable of supporting weights listed above would be extremely helpful. Pushing or pulling concrete buffet columns resting on any surfaces could result in damage to the columns and floor surface itself.

DR CBU concrete buffet will be delivered inside a crate.
