Adopt the new trend, Terrazzo


So what is Terrazzo? Originally from Italy, near Verona, Terrazzo experienced the peak of its success in antiquity, especially in Venetian palaces. Composed of a set of natural stones and fragmented and colored elements, similar to granite and glass, bound by a neutral and polished binder, Terrazzo is both original and daring. Less rigid than marble and more modern with its speckled patterns resulting from its nature, Terrazzo is as much a material as a pattern.
