1. Textured Web: Showcase of Textured & Patterned Website Designs →

    When it comes to design resources, textures and patterns are among some of the most popular tools on offer. And while we may never be able to get a single, definitive answer from the community as to why this is, one can surmise that their popularity is probably due to their extreme usefulness. Their ability to add such richness and depth to otherwise flat website designs with ease, may also factor into that equation.

    In fact, one need only look around the web to find some stunning examples of these elements being deployed with fantastic results. Or one can look at the showcase we have assembled for you below. We have already done some of the leg work for you. The sites we gathered have all used textures or patterns in their website designs, and in such stylish fashion that we felt our spotlight should shine their way.
