Contrasting textures in interior design can make an environment feel fresh and modern. Tactile fabrics and living room wallpapers are an easy way to add interest to a space, and also make your living room more inviting. Find out which textures to introduce into your living room to make it feel both cosy and contemporary.
1 /// Brass
Shades of brass, burnished gold and hammered bronze in interior design are bang on trend for 2017. Brass adds warmth to a space, especially when featuring an interesting surface texture. The contemporary living room pictured highlights a brass feature wall with smaller accessories, such as a modern brass pendant lamp.
2 /// Cork
Eco friendly, lightweight and natural, cork is now being used in innovative design pieces – from low mid-century modern style tables and benches, to quirky cork bottle top stools. This modern material is making a comeback in a big way, and with so many styles to choose from, you’re sure to find something that will instantly modernise your living room, whatever your decor.
3 /// Marble
This luxury material adds a touch of glamour and decadence to any interior. If you can’t quite stretch to a marble floor or unit, a marble coffee table is just enough of the good stuff. The opulent living room pictured features two contrasting textures to dramatic, rich effect: marble and velvet.
4 /// Rattan
Rattan furniture is the retro trend from the 60s and 70s that is making a comeback for 2017. No longer reserved just for conservatories and dated patio furniture, modern design pieces like the sculptural sofa pictured, are a great way to introduce this texture to your living room.
5 /// Velvet
At FEATHR we can’t seem to get enough of velvet, the rich, tactile material adds a dash of luxury in any room of the house it features in. The unique combination of textures in the stunning living room pictured, strike the perfect balance between inviting, contemporary and bold.
Why not upholster your existing suite with one of our artist-designed velvet fabrics? A simple yet very effective interior update.
6 /// Wood
Wooden furniture gets sculptural in 2017. Low, Danish benches, retro mid-century modern sideboards and unusual statement chairs made in teak with metal or leather detail, give a nod to the interior design trends of the past, with one eye firmly on the present.
