They say that all things come around, and this time- it’s terrazzo floors! Popular in the 1920’s- 1940’s, terrazzo is a flooring material consisting of chips of marble or granite set in concrete and polished to give a smooth surface. It is typically poured onsite, and is a bit of a dying craft. With the resurgence of art deco styles, it was only a matter of time before this almost forgotten gem was brought back to life. Now, real terrazzo is stunning, but it comes with an even more stunning price tag. The image above, Amestile & Stone Autore collection, is just one amazing alternative to this trend: terrazzo tiles!
Practical and durable, terazzo tiles themselves have different options. We have a few porcelain tiles in store that are super dreamy – and at a fraction of the cost of the real thing! Check out the full line of the Autore collection here.
Ceramstone also has a pretty funky and colourful take on traditonal terrazzos, with their Le Veneziane series, found here.
For every colour palette terrazzo is a stunning choice, allowing for a small scale aggregate pattern to tie together soft and bold shades alike. Our verdict: definite yes!
