Mixing Textures: 2012 Trend

Create a bold statement with mixing textures because right now you will find textures everywhere.


Rustic woods mixed with metal are seen on coffee and end tables. Mix them with contemporary design for contrast and a statement. Add them to a loft area contrasting with your hard elements or even throw it into a casual environment for easy living. These are bold, fun pieces that will be conversation pieces for years that require no maintenance.



Textures are being seen in the use of fur covered leather in area rugs, accent pieces and pillows. The animal skin rug is back but has been updated. Enjoy this trend because animal prints are still all the rage. One or 2 pieces of animal in a room make a big impact so your decorating dollars will go a long way using a couple of these pieces.
