When you decorate your living room there are a few items that will come as standard and that everyone considers. Of course the main suit is one of these things, and you never really come across a living room that doesn’t have an armchair and at least one sofa. Of course then you have the television and so some furniture for the television to stand on.
However there are many other items of furniture you can add to your living room that are a bit rarer and that can offer a different range of benefits. For example a decorative chest is a great way to add storage space to a room but also to improve the look of your living room.
A pouf is quite similar in this respect. It is an item of furniture not found in everyone’s living room, and at the same time it is one that has multiple uses. Leather Ottoman poufs are very attractive to look at so that way you have already added to the aesthetics of the room. At the same time though they are also highly practical.
Of course the main thing that many of us will use poufs for is as a foot rest. They are soft and comfortable (particularly leather Ottoman poufs) and are just the right height to be the right foot level while we are sitting down on another item of furniture. This really does increase the comfort of all your furniture as you can enjoy a far more reclined position and taking the pressure off of the soles of your feet which is a great feeling when you’ve spent the day walking around on them and they’re feeling sore. It’s worth pointing out to a partner too that in this position they are in the perfect angle for a foot massage. At the same time sitting in this position also has a range of health benefits and is good for you circulation too among other things.
The other big use for poufs is that they can make great extra seating in their own right. If you have guests around then you never know how busy your living room is going to get while you’re entertaining and few people have enough chairs around that they’re ready for every possible contingency. A pouf is something to sit on other than the floor that won’t take up much space and also won’t block your eye-line. It’s perfect for if family friends or relatives bring round their children, but poufs are also comfy enough to be fine for adults too (and they’re far less ‘slouchy’ than bean bags which would look out of place in a nicely designed living room decor).
In short then they look the part and particularly Moroccan poufs or leather ottoman poufs, they are highly practical and can be used as foot rests or seats, and they’re small enough that they don’t take u much space. This is a great addition to your living room then for anyone who wants something a bit different that will improve their decor and prove to be endlessly useful.
