Textures & Details

The essence & aesthetic of our stores dwell on the way we carefully implement details and layer our textures. There’s a beautiful quality to the way a piece of furniture ages through years of wear. After noticing the wonderful mesh of textures continuing to accrue in our stores, we picked out some of the most unique finishes that continue to capture our attention.

The rust-colored peeling & crackled paint on an urn container create a striking display. Hints of a prior color peek through the topcoat, instantly creating a depth and intricate amount of aged detail.

With a bit of texture and a little detail, you can create a new ambience for your space. When designing, keep in mind a piece with character can make or break a room depending on the personality of the item. Texture plays a key part! We hope you come and explore our stores for even more unique textures & details, Happy Designing!
