Newark, NJ – Thibaut has introduced a new collection in its popular “Resource” series—“Texture Resource,” a unique compilation of designs that include exotic and distinctive replications of leather, sharkskin, lizard skin, alligator, grass weave, linen, Venetian plaster, and other interesting textures. As with other “Resource” series books, the Thibaut design studio explores this design style with an array of colors and techniques. The volume is handy for designers and consumers alike.
“Sagri,” a sharkskin texture, is offered in several colors including straw and a dark peppercorn. Colorways for the “Leather” design include earthy butterscotch and pumpkin. “Alligator” is offered in a mottled charcoal-chestnut combination, while the color options for “Grass Weave” include soft strawberry, butter, aqua, and coral. Delphinium blue, lilac, and other bright accents can also be found in the color palette, and some of the designs incorporate unusual metallics and pearl effects.
Designs from this collection surround a room with rich color and a layer of soft pattern. Their tonal look is easy to work with and helps unite various elements in a room, while their depth of texture is a far more interesting alternative to paint. The look is ideal for many rooms in the home, especially offices, libraries, studies, entry foyers, and bathrooms.
