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.

What is a pouf?

Poufs are flexible furniture items that are seen primarily as a playful type of cushioned and/or stuffed seating commonly used in living rooms, kids rooms, and schools. Poufs are available in a range of geometric shapes, textures, materials, and levels of rigidity.

What is a pouf used for?

Poufs are one of the most versatile pieces of modern furniture and can be used for a range of functions including use as a seat, a footrest, a side table, a coffee table, a pet bed, and/or an accent element to the room. Because of their flexibility, poufs are more versatile when paired with other furniture items such as couches and armchairs.

What do you stuff a pouf with?

Poufs can be stuffed with a large variety of soft filling materials ranging from polystyrene balls to various fibers, flock, plastic bags, old clothing, sheets, wool, cotton, and papers. The choice of pouf filling is up to you with the overall comfort and feel of the pouf being largely determined by the qualities of the fill.
