The beauty of terrazzo lies in it’s natural characteristics.
Available in an endless supply of colors and shapes (in a multitude of combinations) works as a subtle background or the focal point of any design.
Traditionally, terrazzo is comprised of any combination of marble, quartz, granite, or glass with concrete, sand down to create a uniform surface. This method provides unique custom finishes that are durable enough to last the test of time. However, it also has its disadvantages. Because of its materials and installation, terrazzo can be heavy and costly.
Nowadays, terrazzo is available in prefab slabs and printed on substrates like adhesive and magnetic surfaces.
Here are some of our favorite uses of terrazzo in retail.
