Bouclé upholstery fabric characteristics?
Bouclé fabric, often spelled as "bouclé," is a textured, looped, and somewhat bumpy textile material known for its distinctive appearance and tactile qualities. The term "bouclé" is of French origin and means "buckled" or "ringed." This fabric is characterized by its three-dimensional, irregular loops or curls that create a unique surface texture and extremely pleasant to touch. It's considered a furniture's timeless choice!
Bouclé fabric is typically made from a variety of fibers, including wool, cotton, silk, or synthetic materials like acrylic or polyester. It is commonly used in the fashion and interior design industries. Yes, I have seen this used for coats, socks, sleepers making these items cozy in the winter months.
Bouclé fabric can be found in a wide range of colors, but it is most commonly associated with neutral and earthy tones. We saw a lot of earthy tones at various showrooms. So calming, refreshing and looks really nice. If you have pets - this is a NO NO choice!
We were curious to about this building and decided to check it out. The furniture pieces were unique, gorgeous and great quality. We saw this chair and wondered if it provided comfort......sure enough it did! Their selections would do nicely in a moderately upscale hotel. Explore for yourself what we enjoyed! The red carpet was certainly what it offered.
