Terrazzo Trend is Making a Comeback in 2018

Last year, we witnessed the rise of marble as a major interior design trend. All over our Pinterest feed we saw the famous combination of marble and brass. The Terrazzo trend started appearing last year and in 2018 is set to replace the marble trend.

One of the interior design trends for 2018 is the use of new textures. Designers say brushed metals are on the decline, while new materials like velvet and stone will rise in popularity.

Terrazzo (Italian for “terrace”) dates back 8,000 years, to the Venetians. As a cost-cutting measure, construction workers would take smashed marble chips and set them in clay—rather than outfitting an entire floor in the pricey marble.

These days terrazzo is made with chips of marble, quartz, granite, or even glass set into a matrix of concrete or epoxy resin. The chips can actually be quite large, and the matrix and the aggregate can be almost any color you can imagine, which makes for a myriad of design possibilities.

This variety means that this material commonly seen on tiles, is now making its way into furniture, like side tables, and providing inspiration for accessories such as planters and rugs.

Below I curated the best looks with Terrazzo trend and I have also collected an inspiring selection of some of the ways terrazzo is being used right now on our Pinterest.
