It’s safe to say with three kids under five we put our furniture to the test. Any couch is more a launch pad than sitting space. Every chair better be fort-ready in a flash. Without a doubt, our tried and true brand is Article. They’re at a quality and price point to make sense for long-term investment. We recently spruced up our living room with new boucle chairs and a loop rug that I can’t stop petting. Here’s a look at how it all turned out.
The boucle trend is a big favorite of mine. That type of fabric is both visually interesting and majorly comfortable. Yes, ivory in these chairs is a risk BUT I believe in Scotch Guard. Plus the added swivel feature serves a convenient function in open concept. Leading from living room to kitchen, they offer a continuity that wasn’t there with our old, stationary designs.
Our old rug has since moved into the family play area. It’s seen quite a lot of wear in all three of our homes and needed a less ’prominent’ display. A.K.A. I want fewer people to have to look at it when they come over. Instead, this loop design rug is again a textual dream. We unrolled it right when it arrived and I wanted to sleep on that thing. It is luxe without looking too pretentious. It’s handwoven without feeling too precious. It does naturally shed for the first few months since it is handmade. But that quickly fades. Plus, easy to blame on house pets if you have those, too.
For the first time since we moved here, I feel this room to be light and energized. It often takes a while to bring together the right pieces in a home. But that time, energy, and searching always pay off in the end. I’ve made impulse buys too many times to count. And they’re never the keepers. These boucle chairs and accompanying rug are another story.
