A pouf is a versatile and comfortable furniture piece with multiple functions ranging from seating to being a foot rest, or even a side table depending on the stiffness of the pouf. Similar to an ottoman but without the structure and legs, a pouf (also pouffe) is normally used as a casual cushioned seat that seamlessly services spaces in conjunction with other furniture pieces such as sofas and loveseats. Poufs are often seen as cushions and used for comfortable and flexible multi-purpose seating. Poufs are usually used in bedrooms, guest rooms, lounge spaces, kids rooms, and play rooms.
