I'm an interior designer – the trendy fabric you must ditch immediately…it was cool last year, now it’s totally overdone | The Sun

AN INTERIOR designer has revealed that there’s a trendy fabric that you must ditch immediately.

While boucle might’ve been a cool trend in 2022, according to this home expert, it’s totally over-used now.



According to Kreiss, an American interior whizz, based in Los Angeles, who posts on TikTok under the username @kreissdesign, the boucle material, found in many celebrities’ homes, including Molly-Mae Hague, is very overdone.

But don’t worry if you’re a fan of the trend, as this interior whizz has suggested that there are some similar but more stylish alternatives that you should opt for instead. 

Kreiss shared a clip to the social media app with the caption ‘Avoid this overused fabric! Here’s what to use instead.’

He said: “Please avoid this overused fabric that was super trendy in 2022 – chunky boucle.

One person said: “Nooooooo neverrrrrrrrr.” 

Another added: “Thank you, subtle is best!” 

A third commented: “I have never and will never have boucle anywhere in my life.” 

Someone else noted: “I really hate that texture. I don’t understand the trend… I find it tacky.”
