Domino’s Icons of Style #6: Moroccan PoofsMarch 5, 2009
Today’s guest post is another installment in the series, Domino’s Icons of Style, by Beth of Style Redux – who also was in the Washington Post today! Let us know what your personal opinion of each icon of style is in the comments: love it? hate it? used it in your own place? We want to know what you think!
The Moroccan Pouf is a round leather embroidered ottoman. I first saw them in Domino Magazine and was fascinated by their beautiful colors and adaptability. They come in any color and stitching, in metallic and non-metallic. Incredibly versatile – they can be used as seating, a coffee table, a stool, a small table, or as a great decorative item. I have two in front of my fireplace-they are great as multiples. Wonderful in a living room, bedroom, media room, even outdoors in this fun wicker version. You can spend as little or as much as you want for one; I have seen them on eBay and in hip neighborhoods starting at $25, but you can spend $250 or more for higher quality leather, embroidery, and larger sizes.

I love the pink on the zigzag rug:
The turquoise is stunning on the zebra rug:
Another zebra rug and pouf-fabulous!

What fun! A wicker version for outdoors:
This rattan version from Urban Outfitters is quite cute:
