Terrazzo was created by those clever Venetians in the early 20th century as a low cost material to surface flooring in and outside the home, the traditional flooring material has chips of marble and granite set within concrete which was polished up and creates a mosaic style feature. The return of this material sees less of a polished look but more raw, more beautiful, more colourful for the 21st Century.
Here are some of my favourite terrazzo finds, I am so on board with this trend I just love it!
This beautiful confetti table has been created by the amazing folk at Fish and Pink and is available at Crowdy House, a website worth checking out if you haven’t already; they buy directly from designers and makers to find beautiful pieces like this for us to purchase! The gorgeous terrazzo top is beautiful constructed with black, greys and pops of yellow to tie in those gorgeous legs! This is an investment piece, but its handcrafted and such a wow piece for the home.
Another wonderful store if you haven’t checked them out before is 12Thirteen Store. They only sell the most unique handmade pieces, created by artisans and up and coming designers. You will find the most beautiful handmade terrazzo bowls and serving boards. They are just exquisite pieces of design. I love the different colour ways whether yellow is your thing or blue and red, they are just gorgeous.
Daniel Enoksson at HAY has totally got onboard this trend. The wonderfully designed terrazzo side tables will add a touch scandi chic to any home. The terrazzo footing comes in different colour ways and the tops different shapes. I have my eye on the middle circular side table, and think it would fit perfectly with the new Kitchen to be started next month (more on that soon, promise!)
I have also found some beautiful accessories to add a touch of this trend to any home. Who needs marble and copper candle holders any more when terrazzo and brass is a thing! These wonderful candler holders, are from the US, but they are so beautiful and would add the perfect nod to this trend on any shelfie, dining room or side table. These would fit perfectly in my new bedroom too!
To try and add the latest home interior trends to Number Five, I always search for plant pots to see if there are any beauties to add to the home. I have always had a soft spot for plants in the home, my mum and dad have a conservatory full of cacti and plants which are some are as old as me now, so its in my blood, and plant pots are a great nod to trend without having to spend loads. I found this beautiful white terrazzo pot on Trouva by Mink Interiors. (anyone else have a wish list the size of Santa’s christmas list on this site!) which has tiny little terrazzo flecks through! Always beautiful styling from this site.
Finally, my go for beautiful trends translated into fabulous high street finds, Oliver Bonas. I spotted the most beautiful lamp from OB with terrazzo base and shade when browsing the other day – it is just so pretty, and neutral enough to look fantastic in any colour scheme and room.
I then spotted some gorgeous terrazzo table lamp bases that I thought would look so good in the bedroom. They were small enough to go on our mini bedside tables, had the cool Edison bulb addition which gives off the perfect ambient vibe to the room and the grey flecks in the terrazzo would fit perfectly in the new colour scheme. So I may have added them to the basket, but they are so worth it! Such an good addition to the bedroom!
Will you be adding any terrazzo vibes to your home?
