The pouf craze is on! And with good reason—these portable, versatile, decorative cushions can be used as supplemental seating, as a footrest or in lieu of a coffee table. Poufs are a great way to add a splash of color or create a style vibe without breaking the bank. They’re particularly good at articulating the boho-chic look that’s so red hot these days, says Lora Brown of Brown & Beam, and are thus popular with the millennial set. Small rooms and apartments are perfect pouf candidates, Brown says, and can take a basic, neutral furniture set from bland to boho in no time flat. When coordinated with other textile elements like rugs, pillows and window treatments, “the right pouf can help tie a room’s look together beautifully and inexpensively,” she says.
