Collection: TERRAZZO

''Our Terrazzo collection was inspired by memories of collecting beach pebbles as  a child, it was like our own personal and preferred choice of 'gem' stones stuffed into our pockets''.

This beautiful earth tone composition has potential to be the new marble trend we created back in 2012.  Like all good things, marble’s popularity will come to an end. Terrazzo has been seen all over interior design products this year and last. We paired Pantone's 2019 Toffee color with the gorgeous terrazzo pattern.  Toffee,  a shade between orange and brown, toffee terracotta is a cozy color that helps to warm the house and your outfit with just a few touches. The color of earth and nature combines well with warm colors and materials such as tan and taupe leather, blush pink cotton but also with cold colors such as pale blue/sea green and materials like clear Lucite and pewter/silver metals (creating an interesting contrast effect).

The history of terrazzo dates back over five hundred years. Italian for ‘terrace’, it originates from Venice where it was invented in the 15th century by Venetian construction workers. At the time, marble was the material of choice and was widely used for the construction of Venice’s beautiful buildings. After jobs, these builders were left with oddly shaped marble remnants that were of no use, so they put them into clay and grinded to a flat surface, creating the durable yet inexpensive material.  

Terrazzo is a highly versatile stone because of its endless composition possibilities. Historically it is made primarily of scraps of marble mixed with concrete, but modern day versions have introduced agate, quarts, and granite to make something truly eye-catching and fit for the contemporary home.
