POU F S They’re the new liv­ing room sta­ple that ev­ery­one needs

Reimag­ined for mod­ern homes, they’re the new liv­ing room sta­ple

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Contents -

It’s about time we all put our feet up,

which is why we’re wel­com­ing this year’s come­back: the pouf. Not to be con­fused with foot­stools ( have legs) or ot­tomans ( have in­ter­nal stor­age), poufs have long been recog­nis­able on the high street as shape­less, bean­bag-like pieces re­lated to the floor cush­ion. Of late, how­ever, more de­sign at­ten­tion has been paid to this over­looked piece of fur­ni­ture as it be­comes more rel­e­vant to com­pact, mod­ern liv­ing – func­tion­ing as a cof­fee ta­ble or ex­tra seat­ing. Mis­soni Home’s vi­brant pat­terns add grav­i­tas to its sim­ple, poufs (mis­soni­home.com), Minotti’s ‘Jac­ques’ pouf (minot­tilon­don.com) sits on a bronze base, while Ferm Liv­ing’s vel­vet ‘Round’ ver­sions (fermliv­ing.com) have a lux­u­ri­ous, un­du­lat­ing sil­hou­ette. As seen here, Doshi Le­vien’s ‘Tabour’ col­lec­tion for B&B Italia (from £1,695, Chap­lins; chap­lins.co.uk) fur­ther breaks the mould, with su­per­sized geo­met­ric shapes that make a state­ment at the foot of your chair. Clear a spot in your home – the pouf 2.0 is here to stay!
