Since its invention dating back to the 15th century, terrazzo continues to add an element of sophistication to architectural design.
Withstanding the test of time, terrazzo is well known for its durability, sustainability, and easy-to-clean surface. This year, in particular, the ancient flooring technique is being repurposed in new and innovative ways all around the world – from furniture and accent walls to home decor and fashion statements.
