Trends come and go at a pace that's pretty hard to keep up with. Between viral TikTok videos, fast fashion, an influx of influencer-generated content, and "core" being attached to the end of pretty much every word known to man (enter: cottagecore, goblincore, cluttercore, etc.), it can be tough to predict exactly what's going to stick. But there's one thing we know for sure: Bouclé is here to stay. This nubby, cozy, ultra-chic texture has been making itself known on everything from couches and chairs to pillows and blankets. It's very of the moment yet simultaneously timeless, and we simply can't get enough of it. In fact, you all shopped our bouclé chair roundup more than any other shopping piece in 2022, and it doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon.
With this in mind, we decided to expand our scope to another decor staple: ottomans. This ultra-versatile piece of furniture makes the perfect footrest, makeshift table, extra seat, or additional storage. Prepare to be majorly inspired by these 16 obsession-worthy bouclé poufs, stools, and classic ottomans.
