Texture Interiors

The traditional wedding list was a checklist of essentials that newlyweds needed to set up home, but not anymore. Given that the majority of modern couples are already living together – and have already had to pick between two toasters – the toasters, kettles, towels and cutlery that used to be top of the list have now fallen out of favour.

Rather than these traditional gifts couples are opting for more statement pieces that reflect their personalities and interests. This is where Texture Interiors come in. If you’re looking for the perfect sofa to cosy up on together or a beautiful timeless investment piece of furniture that you can keep forever but it feels out of reach, they are now offering gift vouchers or store credit so that your guests can contribute towards one of our larger pieces of furniture. You can then have the excitement of choosing that perfect item for your home together.

As well as the option of a gift list, when planning your wedding they stock an abundance of beautiful tea lights, heart decorations and other items to make your venue look beautiful. Struggling with your wedding favours? Want something a bit different and looking for inspiration? They also have lots of lovely trinkets that would make the perfect original favour.

Pop in store for a chat, they’d be delighted to help you with your wedding plans where they can.
