One of the materials that has burst onto the scene is bouclé fabric made of yarn with knots. This thick fabric has become a must-have in a house’s textiles and furniture. Moreover, it is an elegant and timeless trend, so it will be very easy to integrate it into your projects.
The origin of Bouclé: fashion
The word Bouclé comes from French and means “curly.” It was so-called because of its finish. It’s a soft, silky material with hardly any wrinkles.
It was Coco Chanel, one of leading fashion houses, who in the 1960s introduced bouclé in its iconic jackets, making it famous worldwide.
Bouclé is characterised by an irregular surface made of yarn with knots. Furniture upholstered in bouclé offers warmth and comfort wherever they are located. They are also very versatile since they go very well with materials such as natural wood or fabrics in other colours.
We love how the magazine AD defined this new fabric:
For many years, luxury and sophistication have been associated with refinement, delicacy, softness, smoothness. Now, in the middle of the era of digitalisation, when machines can now achieve this smooth perfection, the artisan’s imprint is the most precious commodity. Perfection is imperfection, which denotes that man was there and not an algorithm. A consequence of this new thought is the rise in upholstery of thick and high-relief wefts, the most fashionable right now being wool bouclé, which is sometimes so thick that it still seems unsheared and still covering the sheep.
Bouclé with golden colours
Bouclé mixed with golden colours is one of those perfect combinations that achieve a sophisticated and elegant look.
In recent years, copper and rose gold have been the colours that have most dominated the world of decoration. Now the trend is towards a more golden touch; indeed, it’s the most desired tone this season. The sophisticated gold colour mixed withbouclé fabricwill lend any space a highly innovative touch.
