2019 Trend: Talking About Textures
Considering the feel of the products that you use in your projects can make a huge difference to your final design. Texture helps to distinguish between various surfaces and objects, transform light and affect the perceived size of a living space. Texture can also be used to influence a room’s weight and tone and to help communicate a particular design style, in the same way that colour can impact its perceived temperature. This guide covers some of the latest handles, pendant lights, and worktops, in the Häfele range that can help you to integrate texture into your projects.
Often, handles and knobs are not considered in the planning stages of design, but they can have a significant impact on the overall style, with their shape and finish adding texture to any furnishings. Polished nickel’s smooth and slick texture fits well with modern styles, whereas brushed copper’s warm texture complements a more traditional aesthetic. Handle highlights for adding texture to your project include;
Delia 110.35.111 The Delia knob exemplifies a classic yet versatile style, installed simply via screw fixing. Made from brass, the knob comes in three finishes: brushed brass, polished nickel and copper.
Jude 110.35.102 The Jude knob is great for customers wanting a classic style that’s in keeping with ongoing design trends. Easily installed, the Jude is available in brushed brass, polished nickel and antique copper.
Delia 110.35.116 Easily installed via screw fixing, the Delia handle is a timeless classic that can be easily incorporated into contemporary trends. Available in three finishes: brushed brass, polished nickel and antique copper.
Jude 110.35.122 Made from brass, the Jude cup handle is a classic style that is in keeping with contemporary trends. Designed with a distinctive ridge on the front to aid gripping, the handle can be finished in brushed brass, polished nickel or antique copper.
Exposed brickwork is great for introducing a more industrial edge to your designs, and its texture creates a particularly interesting contrast when combined with raw materials, such as exposed metals and distressed wood.
The new designs in our pendant lighting range complement a whole variety of kitchen styles, and their exposed bulbs and tinted glass shades work particularly well with the industrial aesthetic, creating ambient warmth and adding a statement finishing touch.
The versatile nature of these unique pendants also makes them ideal for creating a more rustic look, especially when combined with natural, raw colours, which can really help to highlight this aesthetic, creating a dramatic, texture-laden atmosphere.
