But what even is terrazzo? Traced back to ancient mosaics in Egypt, terrazzo is a composite material which is poured directly in place and is typically used on floors or walls. It is usually made up of chips of marble, quartz, granite and glass and combined with a binding agent like a type of cement and/or polymeric. Once cured, it is polished smooth to create a uniform surface.
Now transformed into tables of all kinds—from end to coffee—the mineral composition has taken on a new life as stand-alone furniture. And if you're concerned about its sustainability, thanks to terrazzo's unique makeup of recycled materials, you're elevating your space and saving the planet at the same time. Need we say more?
Both extremely durable and easy to maintain, each piece can be unique and custom-made, but fret not, hunting for your own doesn't need to be tricky or break the bank.
