Pouffes & Ottomans - The Inside Story

Any visitor to modern day Morocco will know this extraordinary country is one of those rare places where centuries of African, Arab, Berber and Mediterranean cultures combine brilliantly to delight and tantalise every sense.

Walk through any of Morocco’s cities and you’ll discover a local bazaar, or Souk (pronounced Sook) as they are known. It’s here you’ll experience the heady aromas of open air spice stalls, exquisite tastes of the local food and exotic teas vendors, and of course, the vibrant palette of colours and rich textures of Morocco’s many fabrics and textiles.

From a style viewpoint, Moroccan design is best captured in its bold, intricate and vividly symmetrical patterns, tessellating shapes and hand-stitched embroidery.

The combination of colour, textures, patterns and finishes are beautifully captured in the design of Moroccan decor and can be seen largely in drapes, throws, canopies, lanterns, floor rugs, cushions, wall tiles, mirrors, furniture upholstery and accessories — including the iconic Pouf Ottomans.

The Pouffe Ottoman (or Pouffe for short) is a beautiful example of traditional Moroccan craftsmanship. Usually round (although there are some square ones), stuffed and made from hand-dyed, hand-stitched leathers, they can feature some or all the essential elements of Moroccan style. Some are even embossed with intricate designs specific to local villages and cultures.

Its versatility knows no bounds. As well as convenient seating that can be moved around to suit any family occasion, it can also be adapted to be an individual table or as a comfy footstool.

A Pouffe can be utilised in any room and is a colourful furniture accessory that will instantly brighten and bring an authentic, exotic touch to any Moroccan-themed decor. Even as a stand-alone piece, the Pouffe is designed to endure, looks effortlessly chic in any setting and will add great character to any room in your house.
