Today, the Pinterest 100 — the company's 2018 trend report — was released, and among their finds was this gem: saves of "terrazzo" are up 316%. The original budget flooring of the 1970s seems to have hit a new wave of popularity, and shows no signs of slowing in 2018.

The throwback material first entered our radar back in 2016, when Eleanor noticed terrazzo cropping up more and more in interiors. Until recently, younger generations could only recognize this type of flooring from schools, public buildings, and dated offices — and certainly not homes built post-1970s.

Then, earlier this year, Nancy dived down deeper, giving us the history of the material, along with some serious drool-worthy inspiration on how it's being used today. Gone is the institutional feel, and instead we see the speckled flooring in some of the most modern, stylish abodes being built today.

Inspired ourselves, we've even tried our hand at some DIY terrazzo projects, including a lazy Susan, wall clock, and magnets.

We remain fans, and are happy to see it gaining popularity. How about you?
