The ottoman pouf: a versatile, fun, and practical addition to your space

How to use and how to choose the perfect pouf

The Pouf, Pouff, or Ottoman Pouf is one of the most versatile and fun pieces of furniture one can own.

A pouf is so versatile, it can be used in so many ways: as a footrest, an extra seat for friends and conversation, as a cocktail or side table by adding a tray, or as a feature piece.

Living room, bedroom, study, dining room, playroom, outdoors, wherever one needs somewhere to sit or set something down.

Poufs come in every style and design to accent or compliment surrounding furnishings. They can be fun or serious. And they are a true value when considering their cost in relation to their versatility, adaptability, and mobility.

One chooses a pouf first because one loves its look, its feel, its touch. Then, it has to “work” aesthetically with one’s décor, style, and ambience. And it needs to function for its intended use: comfortable as a seat, stable with a tray on it, stunning as a feature piece.
