Basically, how thing feel. Think about squishing soft carpet between your toes, running your hand along a rough wooden tabletop, or sinking down into leather couch cushions. Honestly, think that the sense of touch part of the definition should be revised to say perceived sense of touch. Anyone who is ever watched an interior design TV program or flipped through the pages of a magazine can tell you that you do not need to have physical contact with a room to feel the power of texture.
While texture may play a supporting role to the function of the space, it is no less vital to a designs success. Instead of examples of texture above, picture trying to get comfortable on a seating set made of granite. Always consider how texture will elevate the overall experience of your design. Odds are, if you have been hanging around design websites for a while, you have heard the term visual weight getting thrown around a lot.
