Terrazzo Styles We Love

Terrazzo – it’s everywhere!  But what is it?  

It originally was a composite material, poured in place or precast, usually just for floors or counters.  It had pieces of marble, quartz, granite, glass, or just about any kind and size of chips added in the mix.  Now terrazzo is a look – and it is popping up on backslashes, rugs, tabletops, walls, lights, accessories…and everything in between!

 

Although commonly found on countertops and backsplashes, you can still create a beautiful, contemporary look like this one by Dzek.

Rugs have even adopted the shapes of terrazzo to create a similar feel with a little more coziness underfoot.

If you’re thinking about adding some style to your walls, maybe a framed print (or two) is the perfect option.
