What goes around usually comes back around in the world of design, and some of the latest proof of this is terrazzo's major resurgence in recent years. We called it first in 2016, but the terrazzo trend is now in full swing. Used throughout history, first in Venetian palazzos, Milanese lobbies, and then in Miami and Memphis art deco buildings, the material is perhaps most reminiscent of your middle school cafeteria flooring.

Today, terrazzo is making a comeback not only as a type of flooring but also as a material of choice for backsplashes, furniture, and lighting. The terrazzo of today is also distinct, featuring chunkier marble pieces and colorful patterns in hues ranging from Millennial Pink to Gen-Z Yellow. Want to adopt the trend in your own space? We rounded up the most interesting renditions of terrazzo design by anyone from artists and furniture designers to mass retailers. There's a little something for everyone.
