The epitome of elegance, the bouclé chair has become the go-to piece for interior lovers in the know. Versatile, sophisticated and oh-so-chic, nothing quite beats a relaxing lounge in one of these cream armchairs. This key trend is ideal for modern and minimalistic aesthetics with the chairs possessing a unique talent for being simultaneously low-key and statement.
Here, LuxDeco’s Senior Creative Buyer Jessica Harding explores the very best of bouclé.

With its bold form and contrasting legs, the Ditmar chair makes a sophisticated statement. The classic off-white bouclé armchair features linear panelling across its enveloping backrest and seat, designed to mimic the strong lines of its square shape. Sitting low to the ground, this chair gives perfectly nonchalant vibes next to a low-lying coffee table and a minimalist arched floor lamp.
As versatile as it is chic, the Pebbles chair looks equally at place at a formal dining table as it does at a dressing table or in a living room arrangement. Featuring three wide rectangular legs—a style attributable to famed Modern furniture designer Milo Baughman—this chair has a dynamic and unexpected edge with a slight nod to retro design. With pieces like this, it’s no surprise that Eichholtz design house is a fan favourite.
The Era chair certainly knows how to make an impact. Seamlessly crafted to incorporate both angular lines and soft curves, the chair’s seat appears to float atop a square black base. Available in warm neutral cream, the Era looks most at home in pairs in a living room. A chair you won't want to get out of.
Undeniably modern with a slight feminine touch, the Beaumont chair works the Mid-century aesthetic that Jonathan Adler is so well-known for. The polished brass base adds height to the chair whilst the wing-like arms make it undeniably one of the most inviting chairs you’ll have ever seen. Also available in sofa form, why not top with a monochromatic cushion for the ultimate contemporary look?
FBC London furniture designs, inspired by Roman artefacts and ruins found in Northumberland, offer a notably masculine energy. The Sol chair is no exception with its monochromatic palette and strong form. A true textural delight, this chair features both bouclé upholstery and planished bronze arms creating a striking juxtaposition. Complete the look with a matching footstool and enjoy a well-deserved break in this handsome home addition.
Quite possibly the only problem with this chair is that you’ll never want to get out of it. A perfect addition to rooms looking for some texture and form, the Brigette brings with it an instant sense of relaxed luxury. With its capsule-shaped arms adding a playful touch and quilting dividing the deep seat in three, it’s a showstopper from every angle. And, for those looking to lean into the look, the Jonathan Adler design is also available in sofa form.
A hug in chair form, this sumptuous seat is just as comfortable as it looks. Upholstered in an irresistibly soft bouclé, the Freud chair combines comfort and style courtesy of gently sweeping backrest and rounded edges. Perched upon round black feet, this chair would feel right at home in a monochrome space or even a Scandinavian inspired home.
