Over the last year, we’ve noticed terrazzo making a big comeback and what once was a composite material strictly used for floors has now spread far and wide to include products and accessories. The random patterns were typically made from pieces of chipped marble and stone suspended within a binding agent. Instead of going the traditional route, modern designers are now taking inspiration from the haphazard material and taking it in a more contemporary direction by creating terrazzo-like patterns for various wares. Take a look at some of our favorite terrazzo-inspired goods.
From Murals Wallpaper comes the Stone Terrazzo Wallpaper Mural with its classic pattern but in a fresh, contemporary color palette. They have other variations if this particular pattern/color isn’t your thing.
Whether you just want to add it to your shelf as a decor piece or use it as a paperweight on your desk, the Terrazzo Pyramid, from ZAKKIA, is a beautiful, geometric object in Snow white that will add a modern hint of visual interest to your place. It also comes in Black, Rose, and Concrete.
Zuza Mengham designed the handmade, Z-shape Nexus stool from a birch-ply base that’s cast in resin to give it the terrazzo-style exterior.
And lastly, Foresso has developed Timber Terrazzo which utilizes wood waste to create a new spin on traditional terrazzo. The finished material can then be used for wall tiles or paneling, countertops, furniture components, or even moldings.
