TREND SPOTTING: Terrazzo

TREND SPOTTING: Terrazzo

Have you noticed? Terrazzo is trending really big these days and not only on floors but walls, surfaces and furniture and accessories as well. Taking after the all marble ecstasy we've been through these past years (which thankfully is still here strong and steady) this equally eloquent, sturdy and natural surface has a more casual and eclectic vibe and definitely a more colorful and geometric result due to the way it is created. To tell you the truth, terrazzo floors have been a part of my life since birth as I have been living on them literally for most of my living days. I remember hating it with passion as a teenager, swearing like crazy when trying to find something that has accidentally fallen on it and then loving it again and again as a designer while trying to convince some of my clients not to cover/remove it while renovating their old apartments. Now, with all this incredible inspiration bombarding us from all around the web, I really can't stop but wanting to use this gorgeous finish right about everywhere. Do you feel the same? What's your opinion on terrazzo surfaces?

    Είχα φτιάξει κ γω ένα post με το ίδιο θέμα αλλά είχα κινηθεί περισσότερο στις γκρι αποχρώσεις, αυτά εδώ είναι πιο ανάλφρα, έχουν μια φρεσκάδα που μ'αρέσει πολύ!:)

  5. Απλά τέλεια!
    Και τέλειο το blog ,by the way!

    Νομίζω πρέπει να τα χρησιμοποιούμε περισσότερο στην Ελλάδα και σε καινούργια πατώματα. Αλήθεια, μπορούμε να βρούμε πλακάκια terrazzo στην αγορά και ποιες εταιρίες;

      Συμφωνω απολύτως! Εκτός από τοπικους μάστορες που μπορείς να ψάξεις, αξίζει να ρίξεις και μια ματια στην Kourasanit.
