1970s zeitgeist

Capturing the zeitgeist of the 1970s, chenille is French for caterpillar, and named for its beautiful surface pile, which gives it a soft, fuzzy texture. Chenille's structured look and velvet feel express a natural authenticity, bringing a calm ambience to contemporary interiors, as well as an engaging vintage feel.


GUBI’s curation of chenille fabrics includes Mumble – an environmentally responsible fabric that is soft to the touch, while offering exceptional resilience. Belsuede Special FR’s lighter flair enhances all shapes with its mottled surface, making it one of the most versatile fabrics in the collection. The fabric has a sturdy quality that makes it an ideal choice for the Beetle Dining Chair. Both are available in a selection of saturated, warm earthy tones and cool blue greens.
