Bring on the Textures!

Focusing on comfort and warmth conveys all the feelings that texture brings to the table. 2024 will be no stranger to the strong insurgence of the organic vibe. Embracing the outdoors and looking to nature are truly the best sources of inspiration when it comes to texture. We are seeing this throughout interior design from lighting to furnishings, rugs, and fabrics.

Textures present themselves in so many ways! Fabrics that make you want to reach out and touch them are abundantly spanning the upholstery world. Boucle, rich velvets, and embroidery are prevalent. We are seeing rich earthy hues such as bordeaux, deep bodied greens, satin brass, and rich corals enhance the vibe as well. Alongside these, an insurgence of trims, fringes, and tassels are making a comeback, too!

Furnishings are embracing those raw materials that were once thought to only be for the outdoors. Materials such as concrete, travertine, and burled woods can add such a richness to any palette. Natural teaks are being paired with metals to bring the outdoors in. Sculptural organic shapes are everywhere, from such small details as the edges of upholstery goods to gorgeous mirrors and light fixtures moving into shapely designs embracing a bit of traditional essence.

Rugs are also jumping on board the trend toward texture. Whether it is handwoven or power loomed, natural fibers, carved piles, and vintage hand-sheared rugs are showing up abundantly. Rugs under foot are a great way to warm up a room and ground the space.

So, while the temperatures are on their way down and cool breezes fill the air, cozy up with the feel-good textiles while adding depth and layers to your home. Think of those organic elements that inspire you and invite them in!
