We run the rule over five international hotels with a real feel for how interesting textures can elevate the look and feel of a space in our latest TOPHOTELDESIGN feature.

The word ‘texture’ is defined as ‘the feel, appearance, or consistency of a surface or substance’, ‘the tactile quality of the surface of a work of art’ and ‘the quality created by the combination of the different elements in a work of music or literature’.

A true appreciation of texture

In a way, all of these definitions apply to the role of texture in interior design. Not only does it create interesting topographies where light bounces off in different ways, but it is also a composition element, as it is in music, art or poetry.

Today’s selection of projects mastered texture and transformed it into the axis of the design.

From rough and raw rustic materials, refined handcrafted surfaces and nature-derived morphologies to crisp, sharp, and glossy or matte finishes, these spaces soundly immerse guests into fascinating moods.

Many TOPHOTELNEWS articles draw on exclusive information from the TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database. This subscription-based product includes details of thousands of hotel projects around the world, along with the key decision-makers behind them. Please note, our data may differ from records held by other organisations. Generally, the database focuses on four- and five-star schemes of significant scale; tracks projects in either the vision, pre-planning, planning, under-construction, pre-opening or newly opened phase; and covers newbuilds, extensions, refurbishments and conversions.
