Rough

Walls can be rough and matte. Think of specialist paint finishes creating an adobe or medieval look.

 

Rough furniture would be rustic  (as opposed to "watch out for splinters"), with possibly heavy iron handles or carving.

Anything not highly polished really could be termed rough.

 

 

 

 

 

Rough fabrics would probably be upholstery and heavy drapery, tapestries and the like, although you can have rough and soft if you think about it. Chenille or boucle could be termed rough , because they are not smooth, but they are still soft. And something like ticking or Hessian could be termed rough, as in hard not soft. even though it could also be termed smooth.. Complicated –well if you use common sense and think about the use of something, the feel of something, then you should be fine. Oops there’s another texture word.

 

"I once lived in a flat that had artexed walls in the shower room. It was tiny and if you lost your balance while drying a foot or something you could fall against a wall and rip your flesh off. Not a good idea. Artex very rough."

Unglazed terracotta
