This season say hello to terrazzo – the material that's taking the interiors world by storm, covering everything from wallpaper to pendant lamps.
Chips of marble, quartz, granite and glass bound in cement and polished, the infinitely varied textures and colours of terrazzo have captured the imaginations of interior brands and designers across the globe.
Originating in 15th century Italy and reminiscent of the vast floors of glamorous Venetian palaces, there's actually nothing new about terrazzo, but designers are now unlocking its decorative potential to inject 21st-century interiors with a touch of urban cool.
Extremely hardwearing, terrazzo is a great choice for floors and kitchen work surfaces, but with its mineral studded surface now featured on everything from furniture to candles, there are plenty of ways to rock this mineral-inspired look in your home this season.
