From a postmodernist’s view and the effect of functionalism, products have less beauty and humanity. Thus we figured out the importance of the decoration design of products. On the other side, the beauty of nature always pierces our soul. It is like a book that includes a lot of knowledge that isunknown to us. People learn from nature and get ideas from it. Whatever it is, macroscopic or the microscopic, nature will always surprise us. The purpose of this study is to explore new nature textures, which can be used on the surface of product design. This study asked 102 subjects for Study 1, by acquiring the views of Kansei engineering and cognitive science and analyzing the results of experiments, we clustered the amounts of the textures. We also got some new textures with deluxe images. In Study 2 we asked 25 subjects for the experiment, which figured out how attributes effect the image of the patterns by using conjoint analysis. Through this study we applied new textures with deluxe images from nature, which can be used on product surface designs.
