Boucle is back - and better than ever

Derived from the French word meaning “curled” or “ringed,” bouclé first made its appearance in the late 1940s, when Florence Knoll requested that Eero Saarinen design a chair that she could “really curl up in.

In the decade following Saarinen’s curled-up release, bouclé surged in popularity and became a staple of many mid-century furniture designers.

As seen on Vogue and Architectural Digest, retro bouclé textures are quickly becoming an Instagram favourite design feature across all types of furniture and soft-furnishings.

The perfect balance between rugged heaviness and gentle softness, bouclé’s timeless texture creates a safe space at home that encourages wellbeing — something we are all needing now more than ever.
