Texture plays such an important role in styling any space. Whilst functionality is clearly important in terms of usability, texture is incredibly important to how well a design comes together. Consider stunning marble waterfall bench tops with their shiny, smooth surfaces throwing light and providing a clean line to the eye. Weigh this against a rough hewn table providing warmth and interest. Generally speaking, rougher textures add warmth and depth, creating intimacy. Whilst smoother textures can add a more refined, streamlined and “polished” look, with a more reserved feel.
Texture in rugs is no different – and rugs can add a plethora of textural options! A fabulous place to dip your toes (pardon the pun) into the wide world of styling with texture.
An obvious place to start is with a shag pile. No, not the daggy shag pile carpet of the 70s, but a stunning 40mm shag in gorgeous neutral tones with a moroccan style pattern. Like our Byron Bay range! Offering up a feeling of warmth, a relaxed and inviting visual softness – along with the physical reality of the softness a 40mm shag provides. Perfect for lounging upon with a book.
But, texture doesn’t end there – there are jutes woven with chenille; dual piles that provide a textural landscape of pattern; silky woven jutes; hand knotted wool……the list goes on and on. Essentially there is a rug out there to suit your texture needs – all we suggest is that you work from the ground up to ensure that the textures you select work together harmoniously to create a space you will enjoy for years to come.
