If we take fabric wall covers, this is mostly about felt panels, which double as soundproofers. They come in various sizes and shapes, and you can find a lot of colors, too. For more effective soundproofing you can also take wooden tiles covered with felt. Felt has a soft textural look and will definitely add a cozy and soft touch to any space.
Cork is another textural material that brings a cool look and warmth at the same time, it has a lot of colors to fit any space and different shapes of panels and coverings to create what you want. An important advantage of cork is that it’s absolutely affordable and you can create various wall art pieces yourself, while wood can cost you a pretty penny.

Tiles can be among the most unusual wall coverings but they aren’t too widespread beyond bathroom and kitchen. Modern designs that can imitate anything from wood to textiles, however, must surely find a place in modern living rooms, bedrooms, and hallways.
