I’ll admit that when I like something, I tend to go overboard a bit. And I’m not ashamed to admit that I love poufs. You know, those sometimes slightly squishy pieces of furniture that aren’t quite an ottoman, not really a bean bag, and not exactly a foot stool.
There are poufs for playrooms, poufs for the patio, poufs for pops, pouf for pups, poufs for plopping and poufs propping up. The possibilities are endless.
Sure, you can use a pouf to prop up your feet, but why not use one as a side table. as an extra seat for the big game, as just as a decorative item or even as a napping spot for your four-legged furry friends.
Poufs are all the rage in home decorating and interior design magazines. I think that’s because there are thousands of styles, fabrics, materials, sizes, shapes and price ranges.Whatever you want, there is a pouf to fit your needs and style.
This orange patterned pouf is right next to my home office desk. It is exclusively the domain of Benny. That’s why I made sure to buy an indoor/outdoor pouf. It’s washable and can be wiped down easily. It is also a little squishier than my other poufs so Benny can sink in for nap and keep me company all throughout my workday.
This pouf is in my bedroom. I use it as part of my reading “nook”. I opted for a sturdier structure and chose a round shape to counter the square lines of the chair, night table and bed.
Even though the pouf is white, I know that I won’t have shoes on while lounging with a good book. I also picked a faux leather Moroccan pouf and bought it from a kid’s catalog (making it much cheaper).
This green pouf was my priciest pouf. It is leather and I wanted to make sure that it would be comfortable and firm as extra seating in my living room. It also doubles as a side table or I can put a serving tray on it during a party or gathering. Because it gets a lot of use by guests who want to chill and watch TV, I made sure that it was a color that wouldn’t get dirty easily and could be wiped up.
This square navy pouf is in my extra bed room. I wanted something less firm, light and easy to move. It’s there for guests as a side table or an additional seat or to put their feet up.
