Poufs, also known as ottomans or floor cushions, not only add comfort in the home, but can also add convenience and style in a few different uses. Functionality is just one of their many joys, where poufs can go from a tool for extra seating or footrests to a creative object that can create cool visual effects in your home.
So what are we waiting for? Let’s get this pouf-party started!
Colours and patterns
You can’t really go wrong with having poufs around the home. High quality poufs of different sizes, shapes, colours, and textures can create an eclectic and straight-up seating arrangement, adding both a playful and unique set-up to your space.
Layering poufs is a trick you might not have thought of, but it’s a great way to add depth and visual interest to a room. Try stacking them or placing them side by side to create a seating arrangement that’s great for kids and their caregivers alike.
In a larger space, try arranging poufs in geometric patterns, such as circles or hexagons, to add a sense of symmetry (and wow) to a room. This can be particularly appealing in modern or minimalist decor.
For an event, you can think about creating a gallery wall above a row of poufs. This contrast between the wall art and the poufs below can complement each other as well as inviting people to take a seat and soak in the art.
Another creative idea is using poufs as a base for floor lamps, lanterns, or string lights adding a playful and atmospheric lighting effect to your space. Bet you’ve never seen that before!
What more is there to say? The key to using poufs for cool visual effects is to be creative, experiment with different arrangements and styles, and have fun with your decor.
