Bouclé is a textile you might have noticed creeping onto your favourite interiors Instagrammers’ feed at the moment. Usually made from wool, it’s perfect for bringing texture to your interior design scheme.

Usually, you’ll find this in a beautiful neutral off-white, but bouclé can be found in dyed colours too.

If you’d love to bring this look into your home, but aren’t sure how to, take a look at some of the key ways to introduce this into your space.

Keep your wits about you when searching online for bouclé style design for your home, as they’re not always labelled as such. Dunelm’s purse-friendly take on the trend is called ‘Teddy’ and includes this budget bench, as well as armchairs and storage benches coming later in the year.

The re-upholstery rewards

Even the most uninspiring of armchairs can be transformed with some new bouclé upholstery. Look out for a good shape when scoping out chairs with re-upholstery potential and call in the professionals to make it happen.
