Ottomans & Poufs
Don’t let their unassuming stature fool you, ottomans and poufs can be the missing piece to completing your living room or bedroom.

Ottoman vs. Pouf: What’s the difference?
Both pieces provide a welcomed place to kick back and put up your feet, but there are slight differences in design. Ottomans often sit at the same level as your seating and have a rigid structure.

Depending on what uses you’re looking for, either can serve as a footrest or—in a pinch—extra seating.
