Transformed :: POUF!

Brainstorming a DIY Pouf | Claire Zinnecker for Camille Styles

It’s not often that I find time to kick back and relax, but when I do, I like to do it right. Because my charming little home boasts a proportionately tiny living room, I opt not to have a coffee table — which makes for a terrific space-saver, but in turn makes propping my feet up and lounging virtually impossible. My solution? A pouf! Though small in size, poufs can get pretty pricey, so thought this would be the perfect project to tackle myself. I’ve gathered images of some of the prettiest poufs I’ve found, and though I have to admit that I’m a bit intimidated by this project, I’m super excited to get started. So I’d love to hear from all of you: Which of these 4  inspirational images would you like to see me make into my perfect pouf? Pitch in your thoughts and ideas, and stay tuned for the reveal in two weeks!

    I love the first one- I think it would function a little better as a “coffee table” than some of the others.

    I love the metallic ones! Can’t wait for this DIY. I always want to buy a pouf but they tend to be kind of pricey.

    What a great idea! I’m loving image 3, but 4 looks super cozy and soft. Tough choice!

    The fourth, chunky knit ones! I want one of these for my soon-to-be baby’s nursery in June, but I don’t want to spend a lot of money. On any of the items. I didn’t even know you COULD diy these, I’d love to see how!

      Check out Pickles’ webiste, they’ve got a whole selection of pouffe knitting instructions (Puff Daddy, Puff Mama, Puff Baby…and more) – all with different patterns. Super easy, I finished mine in less than 10hours.

    I have been looking for an affordable Moroccan pouf for ages, so I would love to see a DIY for that one!

      I wonder if stitching that sort of fabric would be difficult…

    I love the knitted one, but that might be hard to finish in two weeks. I think the burlap one is presh!

      I completely agree!! Have to remember the 2 week dead line :)

    I love all of them, but I would love to see “The Nest” — #2 — because it’s unique and looks extra comfy!!

      I wish I had one to lay on right now! Thanks, Hollis.

    Leave it to me to get stuck in directions- I was thinking just 3 choices. So…. In view of correcting my way of thinking I lean or should I say lay toward two. Your godmother who has lounging down to a fine art! ;)
    I confess #4 did compete for my affection.

    Claire, the 1st is the best. There is something chic and stylish about it. Maybe the fabric or possibly the oversized external seaming, but I love it. Pop a block slate of granite or chunky wood on the top and you’d have the perfect coffee table! What do you think?

    If you’re really in need of a little coffee table, I’d say the metallic poof (add a tray and you’re good to go!), but that second, oversized sock image looks all-too-good to pass up on. Can’t wait!

    I really love the pouf in the top image with the seaming. It feels very fresh and I haven’t seen one quite like it before.
