Introducing: The Thaddeus Collection

Natural boucle dining chairs and bar stools are an easy, effortless way to infuse the abode with a tasteful, understated texture. With much of our boucle furniture pieces continuing to be firm favourites throughout the year, we have worked hard alongside our trusted suppliers to bring the Thaddeus collection to life. The perfect answer for those seeking modern boucle dining furniture, the Thaddeus Dining Chair and Bar Stool both feature a classic and clean shape with a natural, white boucle upholstery. All pieces are entirely handcrafted by skilled artisans using superior materials. 

What is a boucle dining chair? 

Boucle is one of the most comfortable (and popular) dining chair styles available. However, the name ‘boucle’ doesn’t refer to the style of the chair itself, but the material that it is upholstered in. So, what is boucle exactly? The word itself is French, and means loop, with more detailed translations meaning “curled” or “ringed.” The fabric has a fuzzy, nubby effect which is achieved by looping three yarns with different tensions, to create the desired texture.

Boucle has been a popular mainstay throughout different periods, brought to the masses by fashion house Chanel (think of any classic Chanel jacket - it’s probably boucle) and also by Florence Knoll in the late 1940s, who requested that Eero Saarinen create a chair that she could “really curl up in” - little did Knoll know that the renowned designer would take her request so literally and that the texture would go on to become a defining facet of mid-century design.

In the present day, modern boucle dining chairs are a popular way to introduce texture, comfort and luxury into any abode.

About the Thaddeus Natural Boucle Dining Chair & Bar Stool

The Thaddeus Collection comprises a bar stool and dining chair each upholstered in a natural boucle fabric. Both are supported by a solid metal base which has been etched and shaped to create definition, with ply seats padded out in comfortable foam and finished in stunning boucle upholstery. Both styles of seat have strengthening bars between their legs, giving the seat extra support and acting as a footrest on the bar stool.

With an understated palette and high-end materials, the Thaddeus collection is the epitome of contemporary, quiet luxury. It pairs well with absolutely everything - complement the natural hues with the wood tones of the Obsidian Side Table, continue the colour combination with the Krishma Side Table or go for classic monochrome chic with the Serenity Console Table and Jackson Wall Art Trio.
