In a new series, On Trend, we’re asking designers to share their favorite of-the-moment finds.
Maybe it’s the scorching August sun that has visions of ski resorts dancing in our heads, but fuzzy winter wools seem to be everywhere right now. (Gen Z is even finding hip new ways of repurposing their grandmother’s boucle suits, The Guardian reports.) Of course, though it’s lately resurfacing, “furry wool has been a staple in the design industry, both in interiors and fashion, for some time now,” designer Jenelle Lovings tells Business of Home. “It is full of texture, which adds depth and interest to any piece.”

Mid-Century Pillows in Blanc Boucle by Kardiel
“What I love the most about this boucle ball is that all you need is one. Even though it is one of the simplest forms, it isn’t common to see a sphere as a pillow. That alone makes it stand out.”
Borrego Small Round Ottoman by Crate & Barrel
“What’s most striking about this little ottoman is that you get the texture of the white wool boucle and the contrast of its black cerused legs. So much depth in such a small piece.”
Bacio Camel Boucle Sofa by CB2
“This sofa from CB2 looks like a giant teddy waiting to give you a bear hug. The chic camel shade works with every color scheme you can think of.”

Rebecca Chair by AF Home
“Sheepskin fabric on accent chairs gives lounge spaces a modern yet cozy vibe. The soft texture and short nap of the fabric is appealing for clients who want their homes to feel approachable and not too fussy.”
Tibetan Mongolian Sheepskin Fur Throw Pillow by Pillow Décor
“Mongolian curly fur pillows have become one of my go-tos for infusing texture and color. Yes, neutral hues are easier to find, but sometimes you need a pop of color with great texture—and that’s where curly fur comes in.”
Lena White Sheepskin Chair by TOV
“When a little glam is a must (who am I kidding—it’s always a must!), a fur-and-brass-accent chair will do the trick.”

Gwyneth Ivory Boucle Chair by CB2
“I’m drawn to this chair because of its sleek silhouette, its clean lines, and the texture-rich fabric that gives it a modern yet cozy aesthetic. We placed a pair of these ivory mod chairs in a client’s game room for comfortable, stylish entertaining.”
Silla by Kyle Bunting
“Kyle Bunting rugs are all about the exceptional quality and level of customization.”
Nepal Magnolia Armchair in Blue by Baxter
“The blue Mongolian fur on these fabulous chairs adds a lovely pop of color and interest to a space.”
