How to Pick a Square Pouf
A square pouf is reminiscent of a large blocky pillow. A square pouf ottoman will be similar to a traditional ottoman, but poufs don't usually have legs, frames, or storage options. Poufs are usually used for extra seating around the living room, patio, den, or bedroom. They can also be used as footrests, small side tables, or even pillows. The best part is that you can use one pouf in all of these ways day-to-day.
Unless you already know exactly which square pouf you'd like to buy, keep reading. We've highlighted some of our favorite tips to help you make the perfect purchase the first time in the following sections:
Color and Pattern
Look around the room you're decorating and make a note of the color palette and style. This will help you pick the best color and pattern for your pouf. For example, if your space is boho-inspired, a square Moroccan pouf might be a great fit. And if you have a modern gray, blue, black, and white palette, a square pouf in any one of these colors would probably work well in your space.
Patterns are a good way to make your room more eye-catching. If your space is decorated primarily in solid colors, a pattern or two can change things up and make the area more inviting. Likewise, if you have several patterns in your space, a solid color pouf would mix things up nicely.
Material and Durability
If you have a material in mind, use the search filters to find poufs made from that material. For example, you might want a square leather pouf to go with your Moroccan-style living room. Or an outdoor square pouf to stand up to the elements on your patio.
The exposure to moisture, soil, messes, sunlight, and traffic that your pouf will face daily can help you pick the right material for your home.
Measure the furniture in your space and consider what size of pouf you’d like. Do you want a large square pouf for a luxurious look? Or a small square pouf for easier storage? It all depends on how much square footage you have to work with and what your household is like.
Look at the dimensions of the poufs you’re considering and check those measurements against existing furniture so that you know what to expect.
