11 Trendy Home Accessories for the Terrazzo Aficionado

The speckled finish is having a major moment—here’s how to bring it into your home.

Terrazzo—a versatile, composite material typically composed of marble chips mixed with a binding agent—is suddenly everywhere. The material was a staple in U.S. homes in the 1970s, and it’s seen a dramatic resurgence in recent years, popping up everywhere from hip restaurants to bathroom makeovers—although its use dates back to the Italian Renaissance.

Terrazzo was first commonly utilized by 15th-century Venetian workers looking for ways to use discarded marble remnants. Craftsmen would embed the chips in a layer of clay and then seal the surface with goat’s milk. Today, terrazzo can be made from a wide range of materials—including glass, granite, porcelain, and concrete.

With its colorful texture and retro aesthetic, terrazzo has made a major comeback—but if you’re not ready to commit to a permanent installation (such as flooring or a countertop), here are a few simple ways to bring the look home.
