The Terrazzo Trend

Bloesem Living | The Terrazzo Trend

No. 1 
Terrazzo tiles, widely recognised as the preferred flooring for public places such as institutions, subway stations and patios, is now making a comeback — spilling out of the commercial arena and into private spaces, like the home.

Invented in Venice in the 15th Century as a cost-effective flooring material made up of recycled marble and mirror chips, terrazzo tiles are now a popular choice for interiors because of its perks: easy maintenance, durability and timeless beauty. The material can be made into many different colours and mosaic-like designs, creating a statement feature of an area. For some who prefer the subtle hint of interest and texture to their space can opt for contemporary terrazzo — tiles with a simpler mix.

Take a good look around you, at the places you visit and shop at, and you’ll soon start to realise how omnipresent terrazzo has become — almost like a flashback to the seventies, just in more modern and refined settings.
