What are poufs?

Poufs are essentially smaller forms of ottomans.  The name pouf is derived from the French word, “pouffe,” which means large cushion.  Poufs are usually cylindrical or cubic in shape.

Poufs are great because they are easily moveable and don’t take up a lot of space.  And, thankfully, they are rather inexpensive, especially compared to buying another chair or a traditional ottoman.
