What is Boucle?
Boucle (pronounced as “boo-clay”) is a type of yarn that is made from two or more different colors of thread. It’s often used to create textured and interesting fabrics. It was made popular in the 50s in the fashion world through the infamous Coco Chanel.
It’s super soft and feels nubby under your skin, but not in a bad way. Like a giant teddy bear in my opinion. If you see something covered in boucle, you can’t help but touch it.
It’s a great way to add some texture and character to a room. Boucle can be made from any type of fiber, but it’s most commonly made from wool or polyester. Sherpa Boucle is a boucle fabric that is made from acrylic and polyester fibers. It’s often used for blankets and throws because it’s so cozy but I’ve seen it on chairs too.
Why Choose Boucle?
Boucle is a great choice for an accent chair because it’s both durable and stylish. It’s stain-resistant, and those little nubs hide any potential snags or pulls in the fabric.
It’s also a great option if you’re looking for something a little different from the norm. It’s oh so cozy – you’ll want to curl up in this chair and read a good book or watch a movie.
How to Care for Boucle
Boucle is a fairly low-maintenance fabric, but there are a few things you should keep in mind. Boucle can become matted and flat over time if it’s not brushed regularly.
To keep your boucle looking its best, vacuum it regularly with the upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner. You can also use a lint roller to remove any pet hair or lint that’s accumulated on the fabric.
Boucle is stain-resistant, but if you do happen to spill on it – use a damp, soft white cloth and a SMALL amount of dish soap or laundry detergent to blot it up immediately. It’s best to always refer to the manufacturer’s directions for cleaning.
You can Scotchguard them as soon as you get them to provide even more protection.
Boucle Furniture in Decorating
I would use boucle furniture as more of a single piece in a room — rather than having all boucle furniture. It’s a statement piece of furniture – so keep it neutral and to a set of chairs or a single sofa. In this case – we are talking about accent chairs!
You want boucle chairs that are different enough to make a statement but not so different that they don’t “go” with the rest of your decor. That’s why I think it’s best to stick with neutral colors – whites, grays, and warm tans.
You will typically see boucle furniture in rounded and curved forms, which is a great way to add some softness and break up all the straight lines and square shapes of more traditional furniture.

Lulu and Georgia also has a stylish polyester boucle chair for under $1000. The Margie Swivel Chair features a swivel wood base and soft rounded arms. The smaller dimensions on this one make it perfect for adding two or more to a room since they won’t take up a ton of space. This chair is in the featured image of this post FYI.
If you want something very unique and very modern looking, check out the Clementine from 1StopBedrooms. This chair comes in many different colors and fabrics, but this is their boucle option. I love the swooping curves and leg base on this chair.
I love this arm chair option from Anthropologie. The Atticus features leather wrapped wood arms and boucle upholstered seat and back cushion. If this doesn’t scream stylish I don’t know what does. This also comes in a Sherpa option!!
Just a hair under $1000 – Anthropologie also has this option. This boucle accent chair is a hefty 30 inches wide and 33 inches deep. It features a pine wood frame and ash legs. The seat cushion is removable, and the upholstery is a polyester and acrylic boucle.
