I struggle sometimes with how to incorporate kid friendly furniture into my space without compromising style. Today, I'm inspired by the magic of a pouf.
Poufs, by definition are a firm floor ottoman or cushion used as a seat. Often, you'll find that they are made with some fabulous fabrics and colors that can become the starting point when you're picking out your paint colors, too!
Though they come in a variety of sizes, I set out to find the perfect poufs that would be just the right size to use as a pint-size perch.
To make it really fun, I looked for four options that are unique, well designed, and around $100 or less.
Okay, I couldn't resist, I did allow one in that's designed for those without kids and willing to spend a little extra, but it's ADORABLE and Eco-Friendly!
Custom & Chic:
Branch and Birdie caught my eye because of a fresh combination using your choice of fabrics from their offering. These cool little handmade poufs are $68 each and they ship within a week!
Paint colors I would pair with these poufs:
I love the bright green in the background of the photo and found a similar color that's a knock-out plus some others I like!
Authentic Morocco has a selection of these very traditional leather Moroccan poufs for about $79, but what I really enjoyed was their fun rounded poufs called Sabra Poufs. They're about $60 and are made in Marrakech from a traditional Moroccan berber fabric and come in some fun colors like these:
Colors can vary by choice for these poufs, but I suggest trying a specialty finish in a bold color when you use a traditional element like this.
Moolka has of my favorite children's brand, Haba. This Sitabout Madras is made for the curious child who can busily explore the pockets, tabs, and even the shooting stars. It's available for $62.99.
Colors to compliment this pouf:
Lounge with the Little Ones:
Urban Outfitters sells this little velvet cushion for $20 (sale) each in a variety of saturated colors that you can stack together to create great combinations of color.
Dhurrie Style Pouf:
The simple form and pattern of this West Elm pouf is inviting and a great design statement. This particular one is on sale now for $88.
Depending on the rest of your decor, you can really go in many directions for paint. This pouf would be equally striking against a bright yellow wall or a deep red wall.
The Not So Splurgy Splurge For Us Big Kids Only:
Design Within Reach caught my eye with their Miss Rio Pouf. It's bold, colorful, and made with rubber taken from recycled foot flops. Karin Whittman's design is brought to life by Brazilian social organizations who employ local craftspeople who would otherwise have no job. So for $245 (sale), this splurge is a pretty smart choice. (Because the individual pieces can be pulled out, they don't recommend this pouf for environments with small kids)
Do you Pouf? Where do your little stylistas like to sit in your house?
