At first I thought it was a fad, but the Moroccan pouf continues to pop up in the pages of shelter magazines month after month. No doubt they look fun and add an extra oomph to any room, but I've questioned whether they are really worth the $300-500 price tag. After some research, I've learned that due to the quality of leather and the detailed embroidery, a single pouf can take 4-7 days to make. Once completed, these handmade, multitasking poufs can serve as a small table, additional seating, or a footrest. And as you see from the images above, they really can work with any style of decor, from traditional to contemporary to a more casual space. Put one in your living room, office, bedroom, playroom, sunroom... I'm beginning to think their versatility, quality, and history really do make them an investment piece to consider.
So what do you think: fad or investment? Do any of you own a pouf? Do you actually use it?
