A fundamental element that is sometimes overlooked in interior design is the importance that the right choice of fabrics and texture can have in our own home.
Interior design is complex and challenging environment. Its aim is to create a charming and classy environment meeting personal and sometimes many different tastes.
To create visually appealing spaces in design we have to apply various elements such as lines and forms, colours, proportion, light, textures and fabrics.
The combination of patterns, textures and prints is a medium that can transform or update any room in any environment. It is a great way to breathe new life into any living space.
Fabric and textures play an important role in defining the style of a space. This is the reason why in design it is very important that these elements are applied in the right way otherwise there’s a risk of creating a boring space.
But we have to proceed with caution because if the choice is not well balanced it is also possible to really overwhelm the environment.
Different materials create different atmosphere and thanks to the almost unlimited variety of fabrics that there is today in the world of design, the possibilities are endless.
Creating a contrast of textures and colours we can bring life to a room. Whether it is a touch of luxury, a splash of colour or simplicity, all can be achieved using fabric.
Fabric can be used on walls as part of the integral design, on the right chair or sofa and as a finish touch using cushions, throws etc.
The choice of fabric often depends on how we intend to use it. There are various types of fabrics and each fabric has its own characteristics.
– Linen is also another natural fibre fabric with slight glossy and smooth. It is twice as strong as cotton. A regular choice in design as it has an excellent resistance to degradation by heat and is not affected by sunlight like other fibres.
– Leather can add a rich element to a home. It makes a statement wherever you use it and can be an excellent choice for many rooms.
– Silk is a luxurious fabric that has a soft lustre. The fibres themselves are actually prism like, which is the fabric shines it reflects light at various angles. This particular fabric adds a feeling of pure luxury wherever it used.
Although each silk fibre is tougher than a comparable amount of steel, the fabric is temperamental in its reaction to temperatures.
