Terrazzo: Don’t Call It a Comeback

October 13, 2020



Some interior design professionals might say things like “terrazzo is back.” But, let us pose this question: is it really a comeback if it never left? Sure, the honeymoon of the total terrazzo takeover ended in the 1930s. However, it has been consistently useful to interior designers, regardless of its mainstream popularity. And, like all iconic styles, its recent resurfacing as a “trend” is no surprise.

Decorators, interior designers, and DIY enthusiasts make up the 316 percent increase in searches for the term “terrazzo” via search engines just a few years back. That data led Pinterest to forecast a massive demand for the style in the coming years. Numbers don’t lie, and the forecast was spot on. In 2018 alone, the sale of terrazzo styles skyrocketed as much as 50 percent! 

Combine the classic craftsmanship of terrazzo with modern technology, and you’ll find that the only limits for this style are man-made ones. In reality, there are no limits to terrazzo style.
