Nowadays poufs are styled everywhere in the home, and they work with any lifestyle. Our designer Angela Belt discusses why you need this little miracle in your home living spaces.
I have to admit that every time I’m planning out a space, somewhere along the way I ask myself, “Where could a pouf go in this room?” And inadvertently, the answer is almost anywhere. If you’re stuck on what to do with that dead space in the corner of your room or a traditional ottoman is too big (or you’re just weird like me, and you just like to sit on the floor), a pouf is the answer for you. Let me convince you why you need this little miracle in your home too.
When it comes to placing a pouf in the living room, there are three good reasons to introduce them into a space. First, when you need extra seating but you can’t commit to a large piece of upholstery, poufs are at the ready to help. Especially with a small-scale ottoman, you can easily store them underneath a cocktail table and use them only when you need them.

Second, poufs can serve as little footstools when you want to just kick up your feet and binge on some Netflix & chill. All you need is a tray for remote controls and other small-scale accessories when you want to treat it as a table. Remove the tray when you want to use it as an extra footrest or bench for guests. VOILA! Double purpose!
Lastly, these floor cushions are great options for very large-scale spaces. When you have exhausted all of your upholstery options in the space with double sofas and accent chairs, you begin to ask yourself… “What else can I put in here?!?!!” Well, a floor cushion not only takes up some square footage, it also adds personality to a space by draping it in a bold color or pattern to break up a neutral design scheme.
