Why Boucle is a Great Upholstery Choice

Have you seen Kardiel’s new boucle upholstery collection? We’re in love with this curly and comfortable fabric as an upholstery choice! Here are a few of the reasons it makes such great upholstery.

Comfort and Ease

Boucle has the best of both worlds when it comes to comfort and look. It has a soft feel, is comfortable to sit on, and also looks amazing from across the room because of its texture. Boucle is a woven loop fabric, which makes it look bumpy from far away—but it’s soft and comfortable from close up. You’ll want to sit on your sofa all day long with this material.

Clean Up and Sheen

One of the problems with manmade fibers in upholstery is that they sometimes give off an odd sheen when sunlight hits them. But boucle doesn’t have this problem! It’s been engineered to absorb light and not reflect, which instead gives it a great cotton glow that doesn’t look like a shiny reflection. The look gives it a modernist matte appearance, which is perfect for the modern 21st century home.

Boucle fabric also has low liquid absorption, which makes it a perfect upholstery choice because it’s so easy to clean up. Your sofa can look both chic and be easy to maintain for the long term. Our boucle upholstery comes in multiple shades, so if you have kids or pets and are worried about the long-term wear of the fabric, choose the charcoal gris shade rather than the light blanc.

Modernist History

Boucle is not a new fabric—in fact, it’s been used since the mid century for modernist furniture. This fabric is the same as the upholstery on the famous egg chair by the modernist furniture designer Arne Jacobsen in the 1970s. Adding boucle upholstery to your modern 21st century furniture will keep it rooted in the past with its mid century history.
