Terrazzo trend for the modern home

Historical composite stone flooring is reinvented for the modern lifestyle

Stone Italiana Terrazzo in Grey used to maximum effect in this crisp and contemporary kitchen. The large slabs work well for both worktops and flooring.

The history of TERRAZZO is a long one; it is most widely known as the unique material created by Venetian marble workers and masons from oddly shaped marble chips left over after jobs and used for pavements and flooring in Venetian dwellings. During the last century Terrazzo has changed to the form of cement-base tiles using various kinds of grit and chips. This ancient texture is seeing a resurgence in demand as the options in textures, colours, chips and bases have increased its appeal.

Stone Italiana Terrazzo in Dark used on a kitchen worktop. The highly polished finish deepens the near black base colour.

Stone Italiana recycles ceramic chips and quartz waste fragments in their Terrazzo product and create large slabs using the strength characteristics of their quartz manufacturing process. Measuring 307cm x 144cm, Stone Italiana’s terrazzo slabs are suitable for kitchen worktops, bathroom countertops and all worksurfaces including those that come in direct contact with food.
