Versatility of pouffes

Pouffes are versatile accessories which can easily combine pieces of furniture in a room. Pouffes are exceptional since their workmanship is solid, and simultaneously soft and comfortable, and in consequence, they can be used in many ways. Pouffes may serve as chairs, footrests or extra table tops according to their location.

Another exceptional feature is that they are usually combined with other items of a living room suite. Pouffes are not intended to replace other items of furniture, like sometimes in the case of ottomans. They have been designed as accessories to be combined with various things in your space; thus, they will not remove the existing items of furniture, but they will complement them.


How to choose a suitable pouffe for your home?

For their versatility, it is no wonder that pouffes have various forms, styles or sizes. You would choose one or more functions you look for in this item of furniture. For example, if you need an extra seat in front of a TV set, you may select a larger, soft pouffe which will allow you to have a comfortable rest as soon as you have sat down on it. If you think you will use it as an extra table - you will need a harder pouffe, stable enough to hold objects you placed on its surface.

Now when you know how hard or soft your pouffe should be, it’s high time you chose the color and fabric. Consider in which room your pouffe is to be used most often, then select the shade and design that will match other items of decor. While choosing a pouffe fabric, bear in mind the room style. If you intend to place a pouffe in a living room which is not used very much every day, you are likely to fix on a fabric you like most. Instead, if you know that your pouffe will be used by kids or pets on a regular basis, perhaps it would be advisable to choose a fabric easy to be cleaned or which is hydrophobic (i.e. water-resistant fabric).

Various shapes and sizes

Although pouffes are relatively small, they may complicate the design, if not selected adequately. Since pouffes constitute accessories, yet more important is that they should literally be adapted to the present decor. If your pouffe is too large in relation to the space in which it is to be arranged, it may look clumsy and artificial, which is actually the exact opposite of what such an accessory should look like.

So as to find an adequate shape and size for your pouffe, take a look at the space from different areas. Pay attention also to the corners in the room – perhaps they will be a good option for a pouffe or even several ones
