Trend Alert: Terrazzo


Move over marble, there’s a new surface du jour and it goes by the name of terrazzo.

Often associated with industrial landscapes, commercial floors and public spaces, this mixed stone material is now coming into its own as a trendsetter, led by design brands such as HAY and Normann, Copenhagen. From statement wallpapers and decorative accessories, to work surfaces and flooring, terrazzo’s dappled stone pattern is making its mark, inspiring many an interior centrepiece in a choice of palettes ranging from soft and muted to the more dramatic.


Update work surfaces with the terrazzo trend. Opting for a more colourful stone pattern will bring interest to your kitchen, and for a cohesive scheme, pick out key hues in the stone for your cabinetry and fittings.
