I first fell in love with CB2's Gwyneth Ivory Bouclé Chair the same way everyone else did — via TikTok. Alongside the infamous Restoration Hardware Cloud Bed, Stanley Tumbler, and Le Labo Santal 33 Candle, this iconic piece of furniture — as well as on-point dupes and DIYs — took the internet by storm. This motivated our article The 21 Best Dupes for CB2's Viral Bouclé Chair, which ended up being our top-selling commerce article of 2022. While searching for the crème de la crème of affordable versions of this CB2 best-seller, I stumbled across Target's Elroy Accent Chair by Threshold designed with Studio McGee and instantly became obsessed.
Since I had no room for this beauty in my studio apartment, I took the only logical next step and told my boyfriend to get it for his home. Now that I've experienced it firsthand, here is everything you need to know about this gem of an accent chair.

What is the Elroy Accent Chair?
The Elroy Accent Chair, one of Target's best-selling accent chairs, is sold in four colors and three fabrics: tan bouclé, cream Sherpa, natural linen, and dark gray linen. While I love them all, my two clear favorites are the tan bouclé and cream Sherpa. The chair sits low to the ground, features a wood frame and wood legs, and has super-plush, thick cushions. It requires no assembly, has a one-year limited warranty, and retails for just $300 in linen and $320 in bouclé and sherpa.
Pros and Cons of the Elroy Accent Chair
- It looks more expensive than it is. (I saw the cream Sherpa version in person, but I'm more than sure that this would apply to the tan bouclé as well.)
- The wood finish is a rich shade of brown that perfectly complements the light upholstery.
- It's very comfortable.
- It's smaller than it looks in the photos online.
Should you buy the Elroy Accent Chair?
One hundred percent yes. It's especially great for a small space but would also look wonderful as a pair in a larger living room. I would recommend whipping out your tape measure and doing just a little extra prep work before placing your order since it's tough to see the true size online. Otherwise, this piece of furniture is my favorite Target purchase of all time ... and that says a lot since I practically live in that store.
