Get the look: Terrazzo fabric & wallpaper

Whilst less well-known than marble, terrazzo is beautifully versatile in its potential application to interior design. It works in both contemporary and traditional settings, and you can choose to use it as a backdrop for a bold, maximalist scheme or keep it as an accent in a more pared-back space. Even the use of terrazzo in individual designs varies enormously – there is the subtle nuance of Borastapeter’s speckled Johan design, the slightly bolder, busier Terrazzo by Caselio or the super-bold black brush strokes and superimposed terrazzo of Mind the Gap’s Terrazzo wallpaper.

 

Terrazzo first became popular in the 1970s, when it was used as a cheap substitute for marble. Originally used for flooring and worktops, it is a composite material consisting of little shards of glass, marble and other natural materials, suspended in a polymer cut to give that beautiful, non-uniform scattered effect.

 

Fast forward to today and terrazzo has a far more luxurious connotation and is used in interior design to introduce an element of texture, organic pattern and even a hint of luxury.

 


'Terrazzo can be used to give an urban luxe edge to a space – something that sits between the uber-polished aesthetic of marble and the industrial nature of concrete.'

There are a variety of ways to add a terrazzo pattern to your own home – you can introduce it through fabric, with curtains, upholstery or cushions in a the Terrazzo print by James Hare or Terrazzo fabric by Nobilis, or you can opt for wall coverings in a gentler terrazzo inspired print. Introducing a new pattern or texture can feel like a bold step, so start with accessories and build up to a bolder approach if needed.
