When it comes to era materials, we think it’s fair to say that you either love terrazzo or you can’t stand it. But regardless where you stand on the issue, it is universally acknowledged that a little bit goes a long way. The great thing about this funky man-made composite material is that it comes in wide range of colors, styles, and densities. Terrazzo’s time in the sun has returned, with many companies and craftsmen on Etsy churning out every type of product in the style of the speckled concrete, from coasters to duvet covers. And we have hand picked the 15 best pieces to get that touch of the T in your own Mid Century Modern abode.
