    There are some lovely examples of textured web design, a few of which I have already come across such as Cultural Solutions and Cake Sweet Cake, both excellent designs. I liked the Delisham website, the colours and design suits the business. Label my Coffee is a lovely, well thought out design too.

    That is a great collection, and it is such an important detail in any design project to incorporate textural elements. Even in corporate site design there is the opportunity to add small textural details to create depth and detail in a design. Thanks!
