Interior design trends are always fascinating because, like every aspect of culture, they don’t exist in a vacuum. Take our current obsession with boucle for example. Coco Chanel’s favourite fabric, boucle translates to ‘yarn with a looped or curled ply’ and it offers just the right amount of cosiness in these uncertain times. It also happens to be a fabulous complement to modern minimalist house design.
