Can we talk about poufs for a minute? I’m not sure if you have boarded the pouf-trend train yet, but I’m taking on the role of conductor and inviting you to hop on board. As I’ve mentioned here on Style Spotters, over the last year I’ve been creating an office / living room for myself. While the space is pretty large, it’s divided into two separate areas: the office and the living room.Because of the layout, the living room got the short end of the stick in terms of space. However, I’m making that area work as hard as possible.
First, I incorporated a small sectional for maximum seating and total television watching comfort. Given the size of the sectional, I don’t have a lot of space for side chairs without making things feel cramped. The solution? Poufs!
Adding two patterned poufs on the opposite side of my coffee table not only offers me extra seats, but also provides an element of fun. It’s like having a couple mini- bean bag chairs. Adults have an opportunity to be kids again, but in a super stylish and trendy way. You have to love that!
With more and more people on the hunt for the perfect pouf for their space, the varieties, styles, colors, and shapes available these days are endless. Today I want to share some of my favorite poufs in hopes that one or two will fit your space.

I’m sure you’ve seen them. Those odd large, cushioned balls, oftentimes knitted or quilted, sitting on someone’s living room or bedroom floor. Whether in your favorite decorating magazine, home decor store / catalog, or your best friend’s home, poufs are popping up everywhere. I’m actually a huge fan of them myself. I have an adorable gold one in my living room. Not only does it make the perfect foot rest, but it doubles as extra seating and a handy place to pile up my favorite magazines.
In addition to being multifunctional, poufs can offer a great stylistic element to any space. While you can certainly go neutral, most of the poufs that I’ve seen come in fun patterns and textures. It’s a great, easy, and inexpensive way to add a really bold and unique element to your space. So whether you go round or square, check out some of my favorite poufs below.
