You might be tempted to write off these floor cushions as a glorified revival of the retro beanbag chair. But while there are some similarities, these poufs are way more chic than their predecessor, and they’re surprisingly versatile. Try one as a foot rest. Stash a tray on it as a side table. Make it an impromptu extra seat! These guys offer loads of functionality while not taking up a lot of floor space—the golden combo when it comes to small-space dwelling—and we’ve been spying them all over stylish homes, popping up everywhere from family rooms to nurseries, even in outdoor entertaining spaces. Ready to give this style a whirl? Here are three ways to rock the look in your own house, whether you prefer your pouf in fuzzy fur, cozy knit, or exotic embroidered leather.
