It's official: Bouclé is here to stay. The super textured fabric has been blessing our feeds for a while now, thanks to A-listers like Kourtney Kardashian and Madison Beer. Seeing that it's still filling the homes of celebs and designers, the cozy trend obviously has some staying power. This once-retro fabric inspired by the likes of Chanel is now a timeless and luxurious staple. And despite some predictions, it's certainly one interior design trend that's not going anywhere.
If you're just as in love with the comfy-but-chic look that this fabric gives as we are, scroll on for the breakdown on bouclé and our favorite ways to get the look IRL.
What is bouclé?
Bouclé is a super-cozy fabric made of curled yarn fibers that look similar to fleece, but it's much easier to clean and maintain. It's typically made using wool, but the textured effect can also be created with other fabrics such as cotton, polyester, or linen.
Bouclé accent chairs
Accent chairs — like Kaia Gerber's — are by far the most popular way to incorporate bouclé into home decor. You've 100% already seen bouclé chairs styled in celebrity and influencer homes. If you're anything like us and you're dreaming of a cozy seat of your own, we've found some adorable options.
This barrel accent chair comes in a semicircle shape, with a half-moon ottoman that fits perfectly underneath the chair when it's not in use. We love the on-trend ribbed finish that features on the ottoman and completes the look.
This statement piece is made of squishy foam, and its round base and curved back make the accent chair look and feel beyond comfy and inviting. The shape is cozy yet modern and would look amazing alongside a checkered rug in your living room.
TikTok has been loving this bouclé swivel chair, which looks super-similar to Gerber's. Although the living room is the first obvious place for it, we think it would also look perfect in front of a desk to create a cozy work-from-home setup.
Bouclé furniture pieces
It's time to fully embrace the vanilla girl vibes. If you're obsessed with bouclé in a big way, make it the focal point of your space with a statement sofa like Rosie Huntington-Whitley has done, or let a dreamy bench or ottoman take center stage in your living room.
Everything about this bouclé bean bag sofa feels plush. Its size makes it perfect for apartment living, and we're in love with the idea of snuggling on this giant cozy cloud for a lazy morning or low-key movie night.
This sculptural bench has stunning curved edges, plush padding, and a seriously retro feel. We can totally picture it bringing a clean yet comfy look to the foot of a bed, in the living room, or in an entryway.
This adorable ottoman has to be the most aesthetically pleasing storage option we've ever seen. Store a spare set of sheets right next to your sofa and use this piece as a cozy coffee table (just be sure to get some gorgeous coasters, too).
Bouclé on a budget
If you're loving the bouclé look but want a budget-friendly way to incorporate the fabric into your small space, consider a more subtle piece like a pillow or stool. These are some of our favorite textured finds for under $200.
If you're looking for a smaller way to incorporate the bouclé look in your space, this soft throw pillow is perfect. Cuddle up with it on the sofa or use it to style your neutral or pastel bedroom. We think this cushion would look even cuter in a pair, so why not grab two and treat yourself?
We love a multifunctional piece, and this little storage stool/side table definitely fits the bill. Whether you want to use it as seating, store spare throw blankets inside, or style it as a dreamy side table next to your sofa, this bouclé piece can do it all.
This flower-shaped vanity stool gives us major cottagecore vibes and is perfect for any small space dweller. It's obviously created with a getting-ready space in mind, but it's also cute enough to display in the living room and bring out as an extra seat when friends stop by.
