Bouclé has been having a major moment in the world of interior and furniture design over the last year, so much so that it’s been touted ‘the trend of the pandemic’. French for ‘curled’ or ‘looped’, the textile is characterised by its nubby, almost fleecy appearance, created by spinning two strands together with one tension greater than the other, causing loops to be formed along the yarn. With the current craving for tactile, textured materials within the home, it’s really no suprise that this fabric has become so popular. Most often seen in shades of white and cream, another unusal aspect of bouclé is its variety of use. Because the fabric is so versatile due to its hardwearing, breathable and soft nature, it works exceptionally well on organic, curviliear shaped furniture, as well as being soft enough for cushions and throw blankets. Keep scrolling for some inspirational images of bouclé in action and to view my round up a range of bouclé textiles currently on the market that I believe not only look beautiful in the present, but will continue to look so in years to come.
