Justine from Design Skool offers a trio of summer pouf ideas:

I have long admired the Urchin Poufs from Thomas Eyck: Their chunky texture, rich shades, and organic forms are just so alluring, and their modular nature makes them a most practical accent piece. So naturally I was pleased to discover several similar, and slightly more economical, options (see below).

Above: The Urchin Pouf, designed by Christien Meindertsma, is handknit from 100 percent New Zealand wool. Available in three sizes at Thomas Eyck, with prices starting at €510.

Above: Hand knit on giant custom needles, these chunky cotton poufs are available from Brooklyn-based Dana's Joy in a variety of colors; $150, $250, and $350, depending on size.

Above: Hand crocheted cotton poufs by Barcelona-based La Casa De Coto come in all the hot hues of summer (flame red, burnt orange) or the cool shades of beach stones (pale gray, ivory).

Above: The cotton Crochet Stool Cover from La Casa de Coto is €39 and is designed to work with the Alseda stool from Ikea.
