WoodForm Concrete® is NEW!
The romance with wood is apparent as we continue to use wood in all aspects of American construction. However, wood, with its diminishing supply, lacks the durability needed for many projects. This is why JM Lifestyles engineered a cost-effective concrete composite that fills a need in the design market: WoodForm Concrete®. WoodForm Concrete® has the look and feel of wood without the worry of wood, providing a beautiful, resilient, adaptable option. In essence, JM Lifestyles are the American craftsman for WoodForm Concrete® and concrete design, creating the useful as well as the beautiful.

Faux Bois Table Base
This table base was inspired by an actual wood drift wood base. The base found was too small to support the 72" round glass and it wasn't organic enough for the person who wanted it. So we created a very organic concrete base to look like wood. This table was made for a wine room so we created one of the branches to hold a wine bottle under the table top!
Chicago Country Island WoodForm Concrete®
This Chicago commission allowed for JM Lifestyles' attention to detail not only in the field, but in the office to carry out a cost effective seamless migration of an extraordinary local material to be transplanted in a mid country Dream Kitchen. We worked within the budget and the parameters of the client to create a protocol to fulfill their ambitions to own a one of a kind work of functional art. One of our installers was flown to Chicago to install the shipped 48" x 120" Island top with local labor supplied by a local affiliate, BDC Supply. The installation perfectly matched the plans and shop drawings supplied by J&M that were created from the cabinet makers CAD drawings. The rough sawn edge is a simple, clean example of a reclaimed walnut plank, without the splitting, staining, or twisting. The addition of hand hammered nails and Iron dovetails add to the illusion of a reclaimed wood island.

Aoyama Restaurant Wyckoff, NJ

Born in Harding
Woodform was created for one client that had the forethought and desire to have the unique. JM Lifestyles had been creating new textures and a wood texture was one of the subjects. This client wanted it to be used in multiple applications through out her kitchen. The Design team had engineered a complete system that allowed for the diverse applications that were requested and even invented new ones. The result was and is a revolutionary idea in surfacing. Although this idea has been around for centuries, Faux Bois, or fake wood, for example the caliber at which we can re-create wood surfaces in a variety of products and surfaces on a small, cost effective scale is revolutionary. We invite you to engage and create a new world around you.
Roof Top Oasis J&M BBQ Foundation
This private roof top garden was the perfect location for a J&M BBQ Foundation. The composite is very lightweight, making it the perfect product to mount on this IPE deck. The integral sink, 42" Wolf Grill, and Sub Zero refrigerator make this a full outdoor oasis. Notice the serving table, it's WoodForm Concrete® also.
Wine Bottle Faucet
We created a custom sink for a small space powder room. Using WoodForm concrete® for the base we carved the family's initials in the 'wood'. We also used a wine bottle for the faucet!

Mansion in May Planting Room

Our WoodForm Island top in the Kitchen was a huge success as well as our WoodForm planting table in our NEW Papyrus Gray color and the Signature Haute Bungalow finish of the coffee table in the "Musician's Dungeon". We had a tremendous response and we appreciate all of the hard work from everyone involved.
Levels of a Chatham Backyard
This massive WoodForm BBQ top project was a perfect addition to replace the cracked granite that was existing. These custom colored WoodForm tops allowed for a 50" x 130" seamless top to be the focal point of the pool BBQ and the small refined practical Kitchen side BBQ was fitted with a grill side towel bar. The perfect addition to a home that has it all. The tops were created to match the stone work in the base. Notice how this 'wood' doesn't absorb water!l

Also within this space is a service bar that hosts two WoodForm counter tops.
