Oh Boy: Corduroy Is Back (and We Love It)

Thanks to The Cut for alerting us to the return of corduroy — "It's cool again, promise," a headline explains. While the soft, textured stripe fabric may be making a comeback in fashion, we checked to see if the same is true for decor. While there's not a ton of corduroy stuff out there, we are seeing evidence — from major retailers like Urban to smaller, Scandi-cool brands — that it might very well be about to explode.

1. Ferm Living Corduroy Cushion, $69

Danish brand Ferm is one we always look to for emerging trends — and while their corduroy cushions aren't super new, they have added a few new colorways recently.

2. Urban Outfitters Elodie Sofa, $1,200

What goes around comes around: This couch looks like it could have belonged in your parents' '70s apartment ... once again proving that you should never throw things away.

3. Karlsson Corduroy Wall Clock, $45.99

We've never seen a corduroy wall clock before, so this is sure to become a conversation piece.

4. Missoni Home Coomba Pillow, $195

Missoni Home offers a variety of pillows covered in this luxe, extra-wide cord material.

5. PB Teen Wingback Desk Chair, $329

PB Teen: Not just for teens, ya know. Case in point: This very grown-up desk chair covered in thick corduroy.

6. Red Barrel Studio Ottoman, $149.99

We love the deco vibe on this way-affordable ottoman.
