The cosy bouclé fabric is the easy way to transform your home into a cosy space with everything from cushions and blankets, to sofas and beds.
No matter what time of year it is, once you step into the house it’s all about comfy loungewear and creating a homely, cosy space. Whether this is from multiple scatter cushions or layered blankets, when it gets to winter it’s even more important to have a warm, welcoming mood throughout the home. Textures are the perfect place to start and bouclé is the ongoing trend we’ve spotted on some of the top interiors accounts on Instagram. Not only this, the homeware sites have packed their ‘new in’ sections with cushions, pouffes, sofas and even beds made out of the fabric.
So, what is bouclé? It’s a curly, looped yarn that when knotted gives a bobbly effect and feels textured. A lot of minimalists love this look to add a subtle touch of detail to homeware without being too statement.
Brands have been updating their signature pieces in bouclé recently; Swyft – the sofa in a box company – has collaborated with interiors stylist Luke Arthur Wells to create a limited edition collection in the stylish material. Homewares heroes Made also have a bed frame covered in bouclé complete with golden legs and a chic attached headboard. Want to dip your toe into the trend? Try out a cushion cover, throw or pouffe for an effortless update that’ll still gain all the attention.
We’ve found the best bouclé homeware that’ll keep you cosy from here on out – scroll to shop our top 11 pieces.
