Mini Home Trends: Poufs
With a ridiculous name like Pouf, you would think that decorating had turned into magic tricks. While that may be partially true for some, this trend is one that keeps the “fun” in function. Part coffee table, part footstool, part ottoman for extra seating, poufs add a lot of punch to a room.
We used to look at smaller footstools as space fillers and small seating. Now, the pouf chair has taken on new meaning with the addition of trims, buttons, outrageous fabrics, and unexpected shapes. Every upholstery company has one, and can barely keep up with the demand. A few of my favorites:
Dakota Jackson’s Tofu Pouf Ottoman
Dakota Jackson’s Tofu Ottoman – maybe not enough to make you hungry, but the shape will make you smile. The four stainless steel legs and a rotating base make this a little seat fun for everyone.
Arterior Home’s Hugo Patchwork Pouf
Arterior Home’s Hugo Patchwork Cowhide pouf. Available in black and white or brown and white, this guy will blend in nicely with any style. Cute enough to pet.
Aqua Creation’s Anana and Bubbles Poufs
Aqua Creation’s Anana and Bubbles poufs. I am amazed by the designs of this company. The use of materials is arty and functional at once, and the shapes are mesmerizing. For those who like the unusual.
