You may be asking yourself “What is a pouf?”.  A pouf is a round ottoman or footstool that is currently all the rage in home decor.  They come in many different fabrics and designs and are very versatile.  Use them for extra seating, as a side table, a spot to tie your shoes in the entryway, to fill an empty corner in a bedroom, as a stool for the vanity…the list goes on and on.  The round shape will add some interest to all the square corners in most rooms and leaves room for lots of creative embellishment and sewing ideas.  Take a look at some examples of these fun and whimsical furniture pieces and see if there is a spot in your home for a pouf.
