Unusual Textures Horse blankets, flat weave carpets, well worn leather, native artifacts, reclaimed wood and natural fibers provide inspiration for the ethnic influence in interior design. This genre has been around for a long time but is enjoying a resurgence right now because of our desire for unique, handmade items that add texture and interest to our homes. Let's take a look at some new "old" elements for traditional and contemporary interiors.
