Welcome to 2020 and the design buzz word of the day is terrazzo! Traditionally, terrazzo is a composite material containing marble, quartz, granite or glass chips in it. It was cast onsite for floors or precast for bench tops. Terrazzo dates back to Ancient Egypt and Italy but gained popularity in the 1920s with the rise of Art Deco (which is also back in fashion). You may recognise it in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
In 2020 we will see new generation terrazzo in tile form, like the Belga Grey terrazzo from Beaumont Tiles and bench tops like Caesarstone’s Frozen Terra.
Terrazzo is a cool, easy way to add texture and interest to any space in your home.
