Design Sleuth: Moroccan Pouf Roundup

Izabella Simmons June 15, 2012

Spotted on the Diversion Project; a loft decorated in Moroccan style, with poufs and stacks of floor cushions as seating. The versatile pouf is an ancient piece of furniture that functions as extra seating, a side table, or even a foot rest.

N.B.: Poufs are also ideal in households with children; my son Julian uses ours as an exercise ball, balancing back and forth—mainly out of boredom, trying to steal attention away from his newborn sister.
