If you want to add color and character to your seating area, a purple pouf is a great way to do it. Poufs are large, dense cushions that typically sit on the floor and can be used in any room. They can multitask as footrests, tables, and, most commonly, extra seats, and they’re prized for this versatility. Poufs are easy to store or swap out as needed, and they’re sure to transform your home.

Choosing a Purple Pouf
How do you pick the perfect purple pouf? By defining what you want and need for the room that you’re decorating. This can help you eliminate options that don’t work and identify the ones that do. Picking carefully ensures that you’ll be happy with your purchase for years to come. And this is true whether you’re buying a lone pouf to add an extra chair to a small living area or a set of six for your patio.
Below, we’ve outlined a few of our top tips to assist you in finding the best purple pouf ottoman for your space. Keep reading to get inspired:
Color and Pattern
Look at the existing color palette in the room or space that you are decorating. This will help you select the best shade of purple for your decor. A pink-purple pouf looks different than a dark purple pouf, so this step is crucial.
Also, match the pattern on your pouf, if any, to the style that your home is decorated in. For example, a purple Moroccan pouf with bright patterns could work well in a boho space.
Durability and Texture
The material of pouf affects the durability, texture, and character it brings to the room. Consider the levels of soil, moisture, and traffic that your new pouf will be exposed to and pick your textile accordingly. If you’re using your pouf in an outdoor or busy indoor space, for example, you might want an indoor/outdoor fabric.
On the other hand, if the space you’re decorating has lower exposure levels, you might enjoy a square purple leather pouf or a square purple velvet pouf. If you see poufs with interesting textures, take a moment to think about the existing textures in your space to decide if they’ll fit in.
Size and Shape
You’ll have different sizes and shapes to pick from when you buy your new purple pouf. Decide what would work best by measuring the existing furniture and considering the shapes in the space. This can help you pick between a small round purple pouf and a large square purple pouf, for example.
Don’t forget to think about how you plan to use the pouf and plan accordingly. If you want your pouf to double as a table, for example, you’ll want a firmer, flatter surface than one that’s just for seating.
