Let’s Talk About Texture Baby, Let’s Talk About You & Me!

It is important to firstly know how vital it is to have texture included when decorating and furnishing your home. Making sure that texture has been achieved is when you can look around your room and not feel like something is missing!

If sometimes when you look around and feel that the colour scheme, décor and furniture are all complete but you want to give it a little push, it will be texture you need. Texture is what really makes your room pop and brings it together!

When we say texture, we basically mean how things feel, whether that is deeply grained wood, smooth and cold glass or the soft and smooth velvet. It is how it feels when you run your hand over it or how it feels as your foot falls upon it. But we do not always have to have physical interaction to feel the texture that has been brought to the room.

We feel that rough textures make a room feel more intimate and smooth textures make it more casual. Textured dining chairs can be a perfect example of this. Velvet is a very intimate fabric to use as it is so luxurious and appealing to the eye! They invite you to sit on them, knowing comfort is not far away.

There are a lot of ways that texture can be brought into your home and it will change the outlook and feel. A beautifully grained wooden table with stunning high back chairs covered in the finest fabric will create a focal point, but will contrast against each other.

Texture is one of the key elements to creating a really beautiful room. Coming after good furniture, accessories and the right lighting, it is still a big factor that needs to be taken into consideration. As we produce a large range of furniture, we also have a lot of different textures available. Take our Nova, Bronby and Bergen. They are created from smooth plastic with a very smart and sleek finish. This kind of texture is always welcoming and space embracing.

It doesn’t always have to be wood and textiles that will bring your room to life; it is the simple textures that can achieve such depth. Texture adds dimension to a room.

It appeals to both our visual and tactile sense and results in a very interesting room!

Texture does not always have to be obvious but it will have a large impact and be just as dramatic.
