I’m not typically one to follow trends – I just like what I like. Which is why I am just now finding myself drawn to some of the cute floor poufs that have been all the rage the past year. (See what I mean – I don’t even know the trendy phrases to describe trends – pretty sure all the rage is so ten years ago).
But now I find myself thinking a floor pouf could be just the thing to pair with my reupholstered glider. They are small and don’t take up a lot of room but can add a lot of fun and personality.
But as always, I want more style for less money. There are some absolutely gorgeous Moroccan style poufs out there – but they are pricey. Some of the really beautiful ones I found were over $400. Yikes.
I’m not one to give up on beautiful style so easily so I’ve rounded up some of the less expensive pouf options availale as well as some DIY versions.
First up, I had to share this aqua leather pouf from Overstock.com. It is pricey at $137 but is by far the best deal I found on a more traditional pouf.
Next up is a great cable knit pouf from World Market for $80. Pretty cute and cozy.
I also completely love this Small World Ottoman from Restoration Hardware. Again, not cheap at $129 but so great.
And then there are some great handmade versions on Etsy. Like this large chevron pouf from Aletafae for $85.
Or this hand stitched leather version by Marauthentics for $96.
Or the very best deal I found – one of these cute printed pouf covers by Willowtreedecor. For just $35 you get the pouf cover and can stuff it yourself when it arrives. They will even let you send in any fabric you like for them to use for your pouf cover.
And of course I figured if sellers on Etsy can make a pouf, maybe I can too. So I had to include some DIY versions as well.
This fantastic Moroccan style pouf was made from an old bridesmaid dress. Find the full tutorial at Bromeliad.
Better Homes and Gardens also has a great tutorial for making your own pouf.
And finally Mushrooms and Gadgets shared another great example of a DIY pouf. This one is more like an ottoman but I love the simple shape and proportions. This definitely looks doable.
So what do you think – which is your favorite? Or would you rather buy a more expensive version? Would you ever try to DIY something like this?
