This speckled mosaic of marble scraps originated with Venetian craftsmen over 1,000 years ago but it couldn’t look more cutting edge. Imagine this lamp on your bedside tables, or perhaps on the sideboard in the living room. We think at just $10 the terrazzo base lamp from Kmart is a steal.
When created with contemporary colours and placed within a modern scheme, terrazzo brings interest and texture to countertops, floors and staircases. It also works well in accessories, such as this Terrazzo hanging pot by Capra Designs, available in white and black, it costs $59.
It also works incredibly well as a graphic design for fabrics and wallpapers. And, terrazzo can work well in functional homewares such as these bookends from Fenton & Fenton for $60.
And this terrazzo wall clock in on trend blush makes a bold statement in any room, it's available from The Design Gift Shop for $139.90.
