Trendspotting: Terrazzo

If you follow interior design trends, then you already know that terrazzo has been making a major comeback over the last couple of years. For those of you not familiar with this material, terrazzo is a composite material of stone fragments (usually marble, quartz, granite) set into cement and polished to give it a smooth surface. Terrazzo originated in 16th-century Italy as a way to reuse stone offcuts, became popular again during the midcentury design era, and is now enjoying another resurgence today! The pattern made from all the little stone fragments kind of looks like oversized abstract confetti – and I like it! It’s fun and whimsical, but also sophisticated and European all at the same time. I figured it was past time for a terrazzo-inspired stationery round up!
