The Venetian terrazzo floor traces its origins to ancient Greece and Rome, but owes its fame to 15th-century Venice, where this distinctive version of mosaic floor became highly popular. The Calligaris Studio drew inspiration from the original floor, replicating the texture for its TERRAZZO rug, in which the warm beige base is enriched by a varied assortment of “tiles” of different sizes and colours. The startling effect of chromatic disorder turns the rug into the home’s distinctive element. TERRAZZO is machine-made and both the fleece and the structure are made of synthetic fibers (polyester and polypropylene), but with special ultra-resistant processing that yields a “hand-made” effect.
