French Modernist Armchair | Ivory Bouclé
Derived from the French word meaning “curled” or “ringed,” bouclé can refer to a yarn, made from a series of looped fiber, or the fabric made from it. Wool is the most common fiber to undergo the technique, though cotton, linen, and silk have also been used for achieving the fabric’s textured hand. In the decade following Saarinen’s curled-up release, bouclé fabrics spread cross-category, becoming a staple of fashion couture houses (Chanel among the most notable) and of midcentury furniture designers.
This piece is made of natural wood, there will be slight variations in color and grain between chairs. We think this adds to the one-of-a-kind character of this unique seat.
