I'm designing my new portfolio, and lately I've been checking many sites to get somekind of reference for inspiration. One of the main style that I've check as a cool trend is the Grain Texture, that can be done really easily in Fireworks. So I've made a list of sites that use this simple, yet awesome texture!
Also, do you guys know anymore sites that "wear" this texture? If you do, tell us! Leave a comment! I hope you enjoy these! Cheers! ;)

Note & Point
"A gallery devoted to making your Keynote and Powerpoint presentations look that much better."
"I'm truly first and foremost a Web designer. From the moment I created my first table-based site in 2000, I was hooked. Since then, I've bootstrapped my way to standards-based design with XHTML and CSS. There is nothing I love more than the feeling of working an original, hand-crafted Photoshop comp into fresh, validated code."
"The design process involves heavy research and analysis of competing sites for your niche to uncover the best ways to improve the user experience."
