Accent pieces can be added to your home décor and have a huge impact on the versatility of your home. Poufs are one of those pieces. From a practical standpoint poufs can be multipurpose. They are great as a footrest in smaller spaces where you might not have space for a full ottoman, or are just looking to create a less formal ambiance. I also love poufs as additional seating for more casual entertaining (ie: game night or book club). Clustering around the coffee table is certainly relaxing, and can be made all that more comfortable for guests when they are given a slight perch to rest upon.
Poufs are currently available in all different heights and widths/circumference so there are always options depending upon what utility you desire.Larger poufs can be used as a fun and unexpected take on the coffee table, pictured here: Moroccan Pouf Coffee Table. When going this route you could always utilize an interesting tray when you need a solid top. Or you could strategically place coffee table books to achieve the a hard surface. The styling options really are only limited by your imagination.
From a pure style perspective poufs are yet another way to show your individuality (something I strongly believe every home should reflect). Because of the relative small size of a pouf compared to some of your more staple décor pieces such as your: couch, area rug or carpet etc, this is a place you really can experiment with textures, colors, and shape. Choices that may seem outlandish on a large scale, can add a pop of interest when presented on a smaller scope. Pick something you really love, and don’t worry about it being perfect. To quote famed painter Bob Ross – “there are no mistakes just happy accidents.”
All of the poufs above were chosen to show just how versatile this piece can be. Even though the poufs pictured are of a relatively similar color palate, the difference in shape and materials creates five completely unique takes on the majestic pouf. The effect ranging from more tailored (number 5) to totally bohemian (number 3). There really are no wrong choices and you have the freedom to pick the piece that best supplements your home.
