Make Your Own Dip-Dyed Pouf

Alexa Hotz February 03, 2012

We've been enjoying the dip-dyeing trend, so we couldn't resist sharing these charming rattan poufs.

Spotted at La Galerie Vegetale in Paris, these paint-dipped poufs are made by Kok Maison, a Parisian manufacturer of woven furniture founded in the 1920s. Make your own by acquiring a plain rattan pouf; it's a good idea to do a light sanding of the area to be painted, especially if the pouf has a lacquer finish. Then pour latex-based paint into a large tub, and dip the pouf to the desired level. Alternatively, use painters masking tape to define the area to be be painted and use a brush to achieve the look.

Above: An engaging trio of Poufs from La Galerie Vegetale; €80 to €145, depending on size.

Above: To try this at home, pick up the banana-fiber Alseda Stool from Ikea; $29.99.
