A coastal pouf is a perfect way to add versatile seating to your beachy home. Unlike a traditional ottoman, a coastal pouf ottoman doesn’t have a frame, legs, or hidden storage. Instead, it’s filled with firm stuffing and sits directly on the floor. Besides serving as a seat, a pouf can also be a footrest, decoration, or impromptu table.

Choosing a Coastal Pouf
Picking the best coastal pouf for your space can be overwhelming, especially if you see several options that you love. We recommend considering what you want and need from your pouf to eliminate those that won’t work and narrow down your choices.
Below, we’ve highlighted some key questions to ask yourself to help you find the perfect pouf. Keep reading to get inspired:
Color and Style
Look at the area that you’re decorating. What’s the interior style like? What colors are prominent in the palette?
You want a beach pouf that matches the coastal decor and colors that you have in your space. For example, if you have a white, tan, navy, and yellow palette, a beach navy pouf might be an excellent fit. Or, if your space is chic and decorated in coral tones, a coral nautical pouf ottoman with an eye-catching texture could work perfectly.
Exposure and Traffic
How much moisture, soil, and sunlight will you expose your pouf to? What's the traffic level like?
You want a pouf that you can keep clean and beautiful for years to come. This means that you should look for a material that can withstand the exposure and traffic in the area you’re decorating. For example, you would want to pick a nautical outdoor pouf designed to stand up to elevated levels of moisture, soil, and sunlight exposure for an outdoor seating area. For an indoor space, pick something that you can keep clean while taking into account pets, children, and how busy your household is.
Size and Shape
What size of pouf is best for the available space and storage requirements you’re working with? Is there a shape that would fit in nicely with your existing furniture?
As you shop for a coastal pouf, you’ll see options in all shapes and sizes. If you’re not sure what size is best, measure the existing furniture as a height guide and consider any storage requirements. For shape, look for options that will make your space more visually attractive by creating contrast or matching. For example, you might add a round pouf to a room with mostly rectangular furniture to mix it up a bit. Or you could opt for a rectangular pouf to match the shapes in the space, depending on your preference.
