Thanks to its irresistible quilted feel, looped wool seems to have made its way into our homes. The trend for armchairs and sofas in terry cloth is explained by our growing need for a refuge home, where “comforting” materials are associated with more designer furniture lines. The temperatures (but also the particular context of the last few months) indeed encourage us to cocoon in the living room, installed in a pretty fireside chair, a hot drink in hand. A quest for comfort precisely embodied in curly wool through more or less generous seats. Textiles are combined with silhouettes inspired by Art Nouveau, or deliberately minimalist, to multiply the decorative potential of armchairs and sofas. Some iconic pieces like the Pacha by Pierre Paulin even find a second life in contact with this unique woolen material. Therefore, the terry fabric is far from being reserved for authentic atmospheres (a bit rustic), but on the contrary, it invites itself into all interiors. All the more reason to embrace this charming trend, with one of these 20 enveloping seats.
Like a wave of softness, bouclé wool has overwhelmed the world of decoration in just a few seasons. In keeping with the natural trend, this material largely inspired by sheepskin has imposed itself on sofas and lounge chairs to shake up the classic codes of our interiors. Its enveloping side has made it possible to accentuate the comfort sought in the living room and the sleeping areas where this type of seating makes up a reading corner near the window or near the bed. Because all you need is a chaise lounge enhanced with French terry fabric to give any volume a cocoon-like air.
The textile relies mainly on natural colors such as cream, white, or a slightly burnished tint for an authentic look – but it happens that pigments borrowed from Klein or inspired by the Mediterranean slip into certain Sunday models. The looped wool armchairs and sofas bring a sensory side to the decor that leaves no one indifferent. As pleasant to the touch as it is to the eye, the material has many advantages to promote. Especially since it is enough to associate it with light wood, some linen, cushions or braided fibres adapt its profile to the warmer seasons.
