For me personally, I have about 4-5 ottomans and poufs scattered around my house.
You will rarely see me couched on a sofa or chair. It must have something to do with my genes I guess, or maybe I feel more invigorated sitting on one of these instead. The fact that I can pick it up and put it in any corner of any room makes it my first choice. To be frank, in the case of sofas or heavy riveted chairs you can’t really adjust them to how you want them – it is like you are bound by the handles, like you are under arrest.
But with ottomans and poufs, there are no boundaries!
