Are you looking for a versatile and comfortable piece of furniture that you can use anywhere in your home? If so, a round pouf will do the trick. As beautiful as they are versatile, poufs can serve as spare seating, extra end tables, or comfy footrests. Unlike a traditional ottoman, a round pouf ottoman won't have legs, a frame, or storage, but that doesn't make it any less useful.
As you shop for the perfect round pouf ottoman, we hope you'll enjoy our options from top brands like GAN Rugs, Jaipur, Surya and more. If you're not finding the perfect fit here, we suggest taking a look at our full selection of poufs for dozens of additional choices that might be what you're searching for.
How to Choose a Round Pouf
Now that you know you want to add a round pouf to your space, how do you find the right one? Unless you have a huge home and a bottomless budget, you probably can't buy every pouf that catches your eye. But you can narrow down your choices to make it easier to find your favorite. And there's nothing wrong with adding several new poufs to your home if you have room to accommodate them.
Unless you know exactly which pouf you'd like, keep reading for useful tips on choosing the perfect pouf for your space. We've highlighted some of our favorite methods for pinpointing what you're looking for before you buy below.
Color and Pattern
Do you want a blue round pouf, a grey round pouf, a white round pouf, or something completely different? The answer will likely depend on the room that you will use the pouf in the most. Look at the existing colors in your decor and pick a color that will fit right in. Grey, white, black, and tan are neutral colors that can go with almost anything. But colors like blue, green, yellow, red, orange, and purple usually need to match their surroundings.
Also, consider whether the room would benefit from a pattern. For example, you might pick a two-tone round braided pouf to create visual appeal in a room that feels dull. Or a smooth solid-colored pouf in an area with several patterned textiles.
Material and Durability
The material your pouf is made from will impact durability. A round leather pouf cannot withstand the same environment that a round outdoor pouf can. Consider how you will use the pouf, what texture you'd like it to have, how you will clean it, and how much exposure it will face. This will help you choose the right material and durability.
If you'd like a natural round pouf, you might opt for a cotton round pouf or a round jute pouf. For those who'd like more durability or easier cleaning, an indoor/outdoor material might be better.
Measure the furniture in the same space as your round pouf(s) to get an idea of the size you're looking for. Smaller sizes are generally easier to store, and larger sizes are often comfier to lounge on.
