The Terrazzo Edit: Our Top Furniture & Decor Picks from $15

Looking for an alternative to marble? Terrazzo home decor is where it’s at right now, and I have the best pieces to show you in today’s post. Have your credit card at the ready!

It took me a long time to get on board the terrazzo train, I won’t lie. My long-running obsession with marble deemed terrazzo an unnecessary inclusion in the design landscape. But then I saw some terrazzo floor tiles on The Block, and a really small section of my knee got weak. Though I dare not admit it.

Then, terrazzo side tables made their presence known on a few of the supplier websites I source furniture from. My heart fluttered a little. And then I noticed terrazzo plant pots on my Instagram feed and the obsession hit me like a tonne of bricks. It’s now in absolute overdrive and I can’t get enough of this glorious material.

So I thought, why not show you some stunning terrazzo home decor finds from my fave brands? There are so many stores selling the stuff at the moment and I reckon now is the time to jump on the trend. From side tables to wallpaper, lamp bases to soap dispensers, there really isn’t a pocket of your home you can’t pop some terrazzo in.

Globewest is Leading the Terrazzo Charge

You all know Globewest, right? They’re one of my fave suppliers for fabulous furniture for my design clients. But a few years back they expanded their home decor offering, and now they sell all sorts of gorgeous goodies like rugs, cushions, vases, vessels – you name it – in addition to their growing furniture range.

They also happen to sell some stunning terrazzo home decor and furniture. In fact, the two images above, via Globewest, showcase Terrazzo marvellously. In the hero image of this post are their sublime Paloma coffee table and Paloma side table. Nestled together like that, they just make my heart race.

You can see the drama terrazzo furniture can bring to a space, right? The bold shapes, muted colours and tactile details in the living room above are just beyond. I also want that plush sofa in my life. The indulgent red tone of that fabric is bang on-trend for what’s happening with warm hues in homes right now.

Directly above you’ll notice some beautiful terrazzo home decor in the way of trays, bowls and vessels. They’re all from Globewest too. I’ll pop this link here to the Terrazzo section of their website so you can see everything they have on offer. It’s rather extensive and I’m sure you’ll find something to swoon over.

Below I’ve prepared a mood board which has an array of other terrazzo home decor finds from across the country. Enjoy!

    I’m the same! Terrazzo can feel or be perceived as a “dated” Italian tile but the modernised pieces I have been seeing around is making me a convert!! I saw this two weeks ago in person and I love it!! https://www.trithouse.com.au/sale/sale-dining-room/astra-dining-table

    I’m with you about it being a slow burn. I associated terrazzo with shopping centre floors for a long time. Then I fell for a pink terrazzo tray, which broke the terrazzo drought in our house, and I’ve gradually worked up to larger items (terrazzo-topped coffee table going in next month – yay!). Still feel it’s one of those finishes that’s best used in moderation, and tastefully selected to avoid the ‘public bathroom floor’ look. Love the visual texture it brings when done well.
