TERRAZZO DELIGHTS IN UNEXPECTED PLACES

Terrazzo Delights In Unexpected Places

Imagine, a ribbon of brilliant color unfurling on a wall; a fanciful pattern tucked within a hallway niche, or a shimmer of starry specks scattered overhead.   Adding an unexpected twist to what otherwise would be a functional room is often employed by architects, engineers and interior designers to make a bold statement and/or a lasting impression.  Over the years we’ve been asked to partner with many innovative professionals because much like a farmer to a chef, we are the source of the quality ingredients they need to elevate their creations to the highest levels. 

Elevate Creations

Take for example the backlit terrazzo reception desk designed to delight guests at a nightclub in Accra, Ghana, or the light & shadow terrazzo tile used in a Miami, Florida steam room to induce calm.   Adding these inspired touches with our TREND Origina® and Trascenda® terrazzo truly transformed these rooms into works of art. You can almost hear the rushing water when you look at the flowing lines and smooth surface of this kitchen island.  It truly is the “center of attention” and serves a dual purpose as both a food preparation area and a gathering spot for family and friends.

Center Of Attention

From floors, walls, and ceilings to the actual furniture, terrazzo can be manipulated in many ways to enliven décor. Using water-jet cutting, personalized designs or inserts can be created for statement pieces and wall cladding. Standard sizes can be cut into sheets that can be laid side-by-side to create a seamless effect that flows from room to room or can go on for miles. Suitable for covering steps, raised floors and baseboards as well as contouring around curved surfaces like columns,  it’s no wonder terrazzo is the preferred choice for airports, universities, hospitals, grand hotel lobbies, upscale restaurants and retails outlets.

Long Lasting

Architects, engineers, artists, and decorators embrace terrazzo for its design potential while contractors appreciate its ease of installation. Extremely durable and long-lasting, Trend Terrazzo is also appealing to building owners and property managers for yet another reason. It doesn’t require sealing, treating or any other type of maintenance other than routine mopping and perhaps periodic polishing with a buffer in high-traffic public spaces. As an added benefit, its non-porous surface does not absorb common bacteria like natural stone or wood, making it a more hygienic choice for public restrooms, professionals kitchens, and private homes.

At TREND Group USA, we are pleased to deliver such a user-friendly product and are proud of the fact that terrazzo is eco-friendly too. Made with up to 78% post-consumer recycled materials, and a polymer-based resin containing no VOC’s, our TREND Origina® and Trascenda® terrazzo lines are surely Mother Nature Approved!
