If you’d like to give your home a makeover with a rectangular pouf, you’re onto something great. A pouf is a dense cushion that typically sits on the floor. Poufs can be used in any room of the home as seats, tables, or footrests, and they’re easy to store or move around. They’re prized for versatility and coziness. Unlike a traditional ottoman, a rectangular pouf ottoman lacks feet, storage, or a frame in favor of cushioning.

Color and Pattern
Picking a color and pattern is a big decision, but you can make it easier. Look at the existing color palette in the space that you’re decorating and consider the overall style of the room. Use this to guide your selection of color and style for your new rectangular pouf.
You’ll want a color that matches or complements the overall palette, in a pattern or style that goes with your existing decor. And if you plan to use the pouf in multiple rooms, consider a neutral color like white, beige, grey, brown, or black. These colors can usually fit in with any color scheme.
Material and Texture
The material and method used to make your pouf will change the texture and durability it brings to your space. Consider the levels of moisture, soil, and traffic that your pouf will be exposed to, and how you plan to keep it clean.
For busy or outdoor areas, you’ll probably want an indoor/outdoor fabric. For spaces that feel dull, you might want a rectangular leather pouf or a knitted rectangular pouf. Let the requirements of the space guide your decision. Also consider the firmness of the pouf if you plan to use it as a table.
Do you want a large or small rectangular pouf? The answer depends on how you plan to use it and how big the surrounding furniture is. For example, if your space has low seating, a smaller pouf is ideal. But if the room has a high couch, you might want the pouf to be a similar size so you can use it as a rectangular pouf ottoman when you want to put your feet up.
