Historical composite stone flooring is reinvented for the modern lifestyle. Read on to find out more about the current terrazzo trend.
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 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. The terrazzo trend has no sign of relenting; the recycled elements, choice of textures and colourways only strengthen its appeal.
