Adventures with Texture

When you spend time in a space your physical interaction with the surfaces affects how you feel in that environment. Think of all the surfaces that make up an interior: walls, floors, ceiling, table tops, and seating to name a few. The combination of textures can influence whether a space feels formal or informal, and if you feel comforted, welcomed or soothed. freburg4 Smooth leather contrasts with soft velvet creating a ying yang experience.
