Poufs, ottomans, benches, and garden stools will refresh your space without breaking your budget. And I’ve included a handful of tips for using them, so you’re sure to be inspired.
An oversized ottoman or pouf centered in a seating area will command instant attention. Choose one covered in an eye-catching hue for a potent dose of pattern and color—perfect alongside neutral furnishings.
Group four cube ottomans to form a coffee table. Top them with art books and trays for beverages, and when you need an extra seat you’ll have plenty of options.
Ready an ottoman (or a matching pair) by the entry for a perch where you can comfortably put on shoes, take them off, and drop your purse and shopping bags as you enter and leave the house.
Group two or three garden stools in front of a sofa for side tables that can hold books and beverages. They’re easy to move around, so mix styles for an eclectic look.
Pull a pair of garden stools into your entry for charming accents that also add function. Use one as a side table and flip the other one over to corral umbrellas.
Place a garden stool in the bathroom to hold towels and bath accessories. Or set a candle atop one while treating yourself to a rejuvenating soak in the tub.
Place a storage bench with cubbies in the entry for stowing shoes, pet essentials, and on-the-go accessories such as hats and scarves. It will look neat and keep clutter at bay.
Try adding an upholstered bench to one side of the dinner table to give the overall space an airy, more relaxed vibe. It also will provide more room for guests to easily move around at large gatherings.
Place a pair of poufs in an animal print or a globally inspired pattern at the foot of your bed. They’ll serve as convenient catchalls for clothing and pillows, and they’ll add an element of the exotic along with a well-traveled vibe.
Plush colorful poufs are great for kid-friendly spaces, including playrooms and dens. Because they’re like oversize floor cushions, little ones will love piling atop them.
