4 Ways to Satisfy Your Need For a Moroccan Pouf

Morocco is known for producing beautiful, hand-crafted decor and textiles. Chief among them may be the Moroccan pouf, a round leather embroidered ottoman. It comes in a full range of color options, and in metallic or non-metallic leathers, and can be as ornate or as simple as you'd like. Poufs often come filled, or you can order them unfilled and then just buy polystyrene balls or cotton filling locally. One enterprising friend used to store her plastic grocery bags in her pouf.

Poufs are versatile and can be used for seating, as a foot stool, as a small table, or just to look pretty. One pouf is a lovely touch for your living room or bedroom; two make a beautiful set.

If you're in the market for the perfect pouf, we've made a four-part field guide to poufs. Plus, check out some of our top picks!

1. The Classic Pouf:

A standard pouf comes in one color, whether it's black, white, or Glitter Inc.'s metallic. Because of the range of options, decorators love using poufs to add pops of color around a space.

2. The Abstract Pouf:

But, of course, plenty of poufs don't come in solid colors. We're living in a pouf renaissance, and that means there are plenty of different patterns, shapes, and textures to choose from like the one seen on A Beautiful Mess.

3. The Intricate Pouf:

We especially love variations with contrast stitching. Intricate poufs provide a lot of visual interest in a room, but still serve a handy purpose for seating or serving.

4. The DIY Pouf:

If you don't feel like buying a pouf, you can make your own! Kristi Murphy has a budget-friendly DIY tutorial on how to create a pouf using inexpensive fabric and an IKEA footstool. We love her project so much that it ranks among our top decor DIYs.

Actually if you live in DC, you can get authentic puffs and pillows at alot of different shops in the Adams Morgan neighborhood for $35 to $100, same exact one with the thick colorful leather. I bought my mom about 4 of them.

Love, love, love all things Moroccan. I sooo wanted to buy one of these things when I made a once-in-a lifetime trip to Morocco last summer, but I didn't want to carry stuff around. Now I'm kicking myself...
