Texture is like a magic wand for turning ideas into reality. Upholstery, floor coverings, and other materials are crucial components in design and perform the vital dual roles of construction and decoration. The options they afford in characteristics and performance allow designers to bring creative concepts to life as well as implement innovative design solutions. By experimenting with different finishes and textures, a home can look great with a limited selection of materials.
