Finally, choose the best pouf ottoman for your home without stressing over a huge number of options available out there.

Our love at first sight: this handmade woven denim pouf.

Pouf. It even sounds all warm, cozy, and nice. Indeed, getting a pouf for your home is a sure way to make it cozy. Take a cold, minimalist apartment, add this type of ottoman, throw an oversize knit blanket over a couch, and you have yourself a welcoming home.

Indeed, in the day of Scandinavian decor, Hygge, and abundant fairy lights, it’s the good old pouf that brings it down to earth in a heartwarming fashion.

How about a fluffy soft pouf ottoman to add more coziness to your home? If that’s what you’re looking for and you don’t care for extra storage or a piece of furniture that can double as a table, a cute pouf is just what you need.

So, the pouf is not a demanding type of ottoman. It doesn’t provide storage, it can hardly double as a coffee table, but it might be the best footrest or extra seat you’ve ever used.

As promised, this is our top list of the best poufs. We’ve already confessed which pouf took our hearts, and now it’s time for you to do the same.

The ottoman has sufficient height to keep the users seated comfortably. This is a durable item that looks great in person. We love how light these units are (even very young children can move them without difficulty.) With these poufs, you will be able to add a sense of casualness to your living room.

Can you sit on a pouf ottoman?

Most poufs are firm enough to sit on them. They are ideal footrests as well.

Do people actually sit on poufs?

Yes, if that’s the only seating option available. Because poufs are light and easy to store, you can stack up on them for guests.

What’s the difference between an ottoman and a pouf?

An ottoman has a sturdy frame and sometimes legs, while the pouf can be seen as a firm floor pillow.

Where do you put pouf?

The most common place for a pouf is in the living room next to the coffee table (just like an ottoman.) But you can also find poufs in bedrooms, and even in bathrooms of some households.
