Texture is a vital component for any home. Getting these choices of materials right is key to avoiding your scheme falling flat and setting the tone of your space, but they need to be practical too.
We’ve put together an edit of the textures that we’ve spotted in homes and over the high street this year.

Linen is considered an eco-friendly fabric as it is made out of flax, which requires no pesticides or fertiliser to grow. It’s a winning fabric for summer because of its light and airy texture. Plus, the natural crumpled look of linen can give a room a stylishly imperfect, undone feel that is super cosy and inviting.

Cane is a material that’s at the top of a lot of wishlists for the home right now, and for good reason! Because of its webbed structured it feels naturally airy and less flat than some other natural-inspired furniture finishes.
Jute is a natural fibre that is hard-wearing, yet light. Incorporate this texture into your own home through a rug or runner for a warming and natural addition to the space.
Unglazed ceramics are popular for 2020, both in the kitchen and for decorative accessories in living spaces. An unglazed finish is delightfully tactile, and its matte-look evokes a more relaxed feel and visions of Mediterranean holidays.
Brushed cottons fabrics have a light structure and are very soft to the touch. Consider brushed cotton to dress your windows as they fall beautifully, or for cotton cushions and throws that will soften the appearance of your sofa and create a cosy space to relax in.
