Terazzo has been around for many centuries, and yet, every few seasons, we see a glorious re-emergence of this popular trend. In 2021, we are celebrating all things Terazzo with the latest flooring options from Stiles.
In all shapes and sizes, Terazzo remains a popular choice this season. Great for flooring, a feature wall or even a backsplash, Terazzo adds depth and colour to make any interior pop. But how did the humble Terrazo trend first emerge? Let’s consider the history of this famous trend…
The Origin Of Terazzo Tiles
Terazzo was first birthed in Italy by Venetian workers who used discarded pieces of marble during construction. Terazzo comes from Italian and means “terraces” and this material and look were often used on terraced outdoor spaces to construct beautiful exteriors. Today it is a popular choice for inside and out.
So many variations
When it comes to Terrazo, there are endless options. Terazzo can also be coloured to suit a specific purpose. We love that it also gives designers and architects a much more contemporary option for wall and flooring materials.
Stiles is fully embracing the Terrazo trend. Here you can find a few versatile flooring and wall options for your space. Some of our top picks include:
Inspired by a unique type of limestone found in northern Italy, Monocibec’s Chiaroscuro porcelain tiles are extremely rich in graphic detail. Fragments of stone and rock appear to be scattered randomly across the surface, creating a texture that both looks and feels like authentic variegated limestone. These versatile 9mm thick large format tiles have a terrazzo look and polished finish. It is ideal for indoor wall and floor surfaces.
So, for how long with Terazzo be on-trend? The answer really, is that nobody knows. It has been around for centuries and designers and creatives alike continue to be inspired by the whimsy and magic of these beauties. We may, in fact, see Terazzo around for many years to come.
