Trend Focus: Texture

1st Jul 2018

Contrasting textures and raw materials have a timeless appeal and are great for creating a relaxed, lived-in feel. If you're wanting to switch up your interior this summer then this is the perfect trend to go for. Why not mix it up with a selection of textured pieces available from different concessions in Redbrick.

Wicker and rattan, in particular, are very big for summer and not just for outdoor furniture. Bring this trend indoors with the Java Rattan light shade available from MADE.COM which has a simple curved silhouette that beautifully showcases the intricate construction of the shade. 

We also love the Harun Bed from MADE.COM - the clean lines but the statement leather headboard give this bed an effortless Nordic appeal, perfect for creating a modern and understated bedroom. Add a further depth of texture into the room through soft furnishings such as cushions or throws - Heal's have a fabulous selection of throws that would sit perfectly draped across the end of a bed.

The Gentis cabinet range, available from Hülsta, knows the secret of attractive contrasts. Strong contrasts that create excitement are the basis of its design - the range is available in a variety of finishes including beamed walnut, beamed oak or even leather. There is even the option to add an illuminated frame with LED colour temperature control to make your living room, dining room or bedroom even more impressive.

The use of textures continue the Nordic-meets-safari trend - one of the most popular textures for summer is certainly Terrazzo (you will probably remember this stuff from the floors of a school or government from the 70s) this texture can now be seen across products such as lighting and furniture - we love Terra Side Table by Norman Copenhagen from Urbansuite – this small table has clear references to southern craft traditions. No two terrazzo sheets are alike – each one has a unique mix of flaked stone with distinctive shapes and interplay of colours making the table unique to the owner.

If the terrazzo texture isn't your thing then you can't go wrong with a ceramic table top - this has a timeless and elegant appeal - the Milan table from Bo Concept is a classic and functional design, as the ceramic top is heat and scratch resistant.  Pair this table with a contrasting, industrial texture - such as the Magic light 3 Concrete art by Nicole Gadiel for BoConcept to add another dimension to the dining space.


You can incorporate this trend into your bathroom - tiles are a great way to solidify any colour palette and many tiles from BAGNODESIGN at Redbrick feature interesting textures, to add another dynamic in the room.

Bring the texture trend outdoors with the Flame Garden Firebowl by Skagerak at Heal's – the Corten Steel will naturally patinate from silver to a beautiful copper tone after roughly a month of outdoor use.
