From footstool to end table, these pretty pieces are the unsung heroes of the decor world. If you’re looking for versatile, creative and functional ways to incorporate poufs into your decor, read our suggestions below.
1. Extra Seating
It’s always awkward when unannounced guests arrive and there’s no place for anyone to sit because your laundry is scattered all over the couch (and the floor, and the lounger…). Keep a few poufs around for stylish extra seating, and never break a sweat again the next time the doorbell rings on a random Thursday night.
2. Kids’ Room or Teens’ Room Workhorse
It’s an extra seat for your child’s play date! A punching bag! A soft landing on which to perch while reading all of her favorite YA novels. Poufs don’t just add the right amount of pattern and color to a space—they’re extremely versatile and functional, too.
Throw a room or outdoor space with a ton of edges and angles a few curves by peppering the space with poufs that match your overall motif. The addition of a few rotund poufs can soften all of the hard edges, not to mention add pops of color, pattern and verve to what might otherwise be a staid space.
4. End Tables
Place a tray on top of a pouf and you’ve got yourself an end table that transforms odd corners and forgotten spaces into a memorable and functional nook.
Place two or three poufs in front of your sofa and voila! You’ve got yourself a makeshift La-Z-Boy that’s chic and global-eclectic.
