Decorating with a Cotton Pouf
Cotton poufs come in a variety of patterns, textures, and color schemes, so no matter what style you’re looking to fit into, you can find a cotton pouf ottoman that meets your needs. There are many areas to think through when it comes to choosing which pouf will pair well with your overall vision, so keep reading for some specific tips on how to decorate with a cotton pouf.
Choosing Which Cotton Pouf Is Right For You
Purpose: Cotton poufs are versatile in both style and functionality. You always have the option of using your pouf purely as decoration, but you can also use it as a pouf ottoman by your favorite chair and rest your feet. Other uses include using it as a small table, a spare seat, or some combination of these purposes. Depending on what purpose you choose, you may decorate with a pouf in your living room, bedroom, or even entryway or bathroom.
Size, Shape, and Structure: Once you decide on your pouf’s purpose(s), you need to focus on the size, shape, and structure of the pouf. For the pouf’s size, think about how wide and tall you need it to be to fulfill its purposes. Shape can be determined by what other shapes you include in the room, or if you want to add in a unique shape, this is a good opportunity. Structure is key in determining how firm or soft your pouf is. Once again, think back to how you expect your cotton pouf to function and find a pouf sturdy enough or soft enough for you.
Pattern/Texture: Some poufs will come with patterns imprinted into the fabric, while others may use texture and different pile heights to establish the design. When you’re choosing a pattern, find one that has similarities to your other decor, such as similar shapes or lines. When you’re looking at patterns, it’s also a good time to look at any textures the cotton pouf ottoman has and how that is its own form of design. Cable-knit pouf ottomans or rope ottomans may not have a pattern imprinted into the fabric, but it does have a defined texture to make up for it.
Color: When it comes to choosing what color you want your cotton pouf to be, you should choose colors that are similar to the other colors in the room and that they create the same mood. Neutral colors like tan, white, grey, or black are popular choices, but you can also choose other popular colors like blue, green, pink, etc. Whatever you need for your space stylistically, you can find a cotton pouf in the color and design you’re looking for.
