Terrazzo is a tiling material which is made pouring a cement binder with chips of several materials like marble, quartz, granite, glass and others.
The origins of terrazzo date back to the nineteenth century in Italy, with the usage of Pavimento alla Veneziana (Venetian pavement), which had a similar production process. It started to stand out in the 1920s with Art Deco and was very popular throughout the middle of the twentieth century.
A hundred years apart, terrazzo is making its comeback in the interior design world and everybody is loving the outcome, modernized and adapted to the demands of the new millennium.
The fact that so many materials and color bases can be involved in the production makes these tiles unique and not equal to one another, but also really flexible from a creative standpoint, perfect to match almost every style and project.
It is also a great solution for the environment because it usually employs recycled waste materials and can be extremely durable if installed properly.
Terrazzo tiles can be used for indoor and outdoor application as flooring tiles and countertops, though many are using this decorative motif for many surfaces and pieces of furniture, as well as for decorative objects.
