Pouf envy

I have this thing about ottomans. I use them for side tables, coffee tables, at the foot of a bed and for extra seating. They make a perfect 'seat' in a closet to throw your clothes over or sit on when you are putting on your shoes. I also like to use them to fill in an empty space that just needs a little color or texture - maybe in front of the fireplace or in a corner. I think that every client of mine must have at least one!

In fact, when I find an interesting one, I have a hard time resisting.

Moroccan Pouf

But I'm thinking what I need now is a pouf (do you remember when they were called hassocks?).

I'd like a white leather one like this one from Serena & Lily. I'm hoping I can find one for a fraction of the price at HomeGoods.  Well, maybe some day.

So versatile. Good luck at Home Goods!

I have a big round ottoman that I want to do a chenille slipcover on...it is not exactly a pouf, but it has the feeling of one since the shape is round. I DO remember having a hassock growing up in the 60s, and it was a leather one from Turkey...probably right in style these days.

I haven't jumped on this train yet - but these are gorgeous!

I would love a white one, too. They're always great, aren't they?

Yes! I've got a moroccan one in beautiful leather... love it for all the reasons you mentioned xo

Love the white, too! Hope you find a good one for a lot less.

There is nothing better then putting your feet up on something comfy and soft! I'm a little more traditional so the round ones, poofs, will have to grow on me but like the ones you have shown.
