The Must-Have Piece Every Home Should Have

Ottomans, Stools and Poufs Prove to be the Perfect Transitional Accent
Filed Under > Ideas & Inspiration

Ottomans, poufs and garden stools are quite the rage among design influencers, and for good reason.  It can be agreed that these small-scale decor accents effortlessly build visual interest in any room, and with obtainable price tags, they’re nestling into warm, inviting living spaces everywhere. The possibilities are truly endless in a myriad of colors, shapes, sizes and textures as they offer added surface area for styled vignettes and additional, unexpected seating.  But maybe the greatest part about it all?  You can transition the piece to another room when you’re craving an easy refresh.  And since we’re always looking for pieces that are just as stylish as they are functional, decorative ottomans, floor poufs and stools quickly earn a spot at the top of all of our home decor wish lists. 

These small-scale design accents aren’t necessarily new to our scene. As you may remember, the two Cecil Poufs spotted in MKR’s One Room Challenge 2015 Final Reveal (pictured above) really stole the show, and proved that floor poufs pack a punch that’s anything but small.  Once considered mostly a bohemian decor accent, floor poufs and the like can now be found in many contemporary rooms with smart details and styles that are anything but beatnik.  

What do you think about incorporating these imaginative pieces in your home?  Quite the perfect way to feather your nest, don’t you think?  Click through the slideshow above to find design and styling inspiration, along with our favorite finds!  Cheers, Kat

  • I love the idea of a pouf and need to figure out how to add one to my very very small space!

    Me too! I love that they can offer some extra seating in those tight spaces, while still looking sharp. xo
