When it comes to minimalist-chic style, no one does it better than Gwyneth Paltrow. Between her modern, spa-like kitchen and sleek, marble bathroom, the actor-turned-wellness expert knows how to curate a serene, trendy-yet-timeless space.

It makes sense, then, that her own goop furniture line, exclusive to CB2, focuses on effortlessly elegant and stylish staples. One such piece, which has quickly become a bestseller, is the white boucle sofa. It's a couch we can picture in any modern living space, and it just so happens to be on sale for Memorial Day.

Tapping into design trends (starting with quiet luxury) and stemming from the ever-popular mid-century modern phenomenon, the boucle sofa has become a mainstay and a subtle statement piece in even the most neutral of living spaces.

According to Paltrow, the sofa is 'proof that things don't have to be cold and hard to be chic,' as stated on the CB2 website. 'We're taking the compromise out of the equation with chic furniture that's to be lived in and loved.'

The goop sofa features white, boucle-like upholstery, a sustainable wood frame, and a mod-inspired silhouette, making the piece feel at once retro and modern.

'I love how the goop sofa blends tradition with contemporary flare,' Homes & Gardens' editor Jennifer Ebert states. 'The vintage feel of the shape would look beautiful juxtaposed in a more modern space, and the white color would go perfectly with any living room color scheme.'

One of the main draws of the boucle sofa, according to Ebert, is its boucle texture.

'In neutral living spaces, texture is key to ensure that there is some visual interest despite lack of color,' she states. Ebert also recommends accenting the boucle sofa with even more texture living room features.

'Try complementing the boucle loveseat with a fluffy rug or a grainy, wood coffee table for a more nature-infused look,' she suggests. 'It's a look that has impressed designers across recent seasons, and with approval from the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, we're almost certain its popularity won't favor. There's simply too much to love.'

The goop boucle sofa typically retails for $1,499.00 but is currently on sale for $1,999.20 as part of CB2's Memorial Day sale. Below, we have rounded up a couple of alternative options. Happy shopping!
