It’s an essential part of any designer’s vocabulary because a scheme without texture is a scheme that falls seriously short of the mark. Adding texture to a room encompasses a great deal more than a fringed edged cushion here and a rough-sawn wood texture there – it is the precise art of blending the rough with the smooth and knowing how to create visual texture. This article aims to bring you beautiful furniture and lighting that is heavily influenced by the tactile design trend – enjoy!
Interior designers will also use texture to add what’s referred to as ‘visual weight’. In other words, how an object or section of the room is able to draw attention to itself. Contrasting textures is one way to make certain aspects stand out more than others; texture is a way to create accents.
