This fabric was quite common for upholstered chairs and sofas in the 1950s (maybe also late '40s and early '60s). I've seen different sculpted patterns, and colors from green to mauve. The photo here shows brand new pink-brown yardage I found at an estate sale. It has a slick cool satiny feel, though technically it's like boucle.

I'd love to find out the correct name of this type of fabric as well as its history. Can anyone supply some helpful keywords for my online search? Thank you!
