Pouf, beanie, bonnet, ottoman, stool – whatever name it goes by this orbit-shaped legless chair is quickly becoming a popular décor addition. The pouf as I like to call it is both fun and functional, offering an extra seat solution and a fabulous hit of colour to your room. Of course like many items there is always the High vs. Low scenario. I have found 2 different companies selling their version. First is the Beanie from the Dutch design company Montis www.montis.nl .
The Beanie “a knitted cap that is warm and comfortable to sit on” is made of wool and available in a choice of 5 colours; orange, moss green, pine green, blue and grey. The cost of the Beanie is approximately $550 – reflecting the High version. The Low version is the Pouf from CB2 www.cb2.com .
This chunky hand-knit sweater-looking Pouf is made of 100% cotton and available in a choice of 4 colours; blood orange, graphite grey, pool blue or camo green. The cost…..$100. Both the High or Low version will offer a sculptural element to your room; the decision is what colour, what cost.
