5 Poufs and Stools that Steal the Spotlight

These versatile keepers prove they deserve a major role in a room’s cast of characters


Stools and poufs serve as extra seats and function as a side table or a footrest without taking up too much floor space. We pick five that look good and would be a great addition to your home:

Embroidred Suzani Pouf

P6,995, Seek the Uniq,

A showstopper pouf can add a layer of character to a hodgepodge-eclectic space and just the right dose of shock to a minimalist home. The Suzani Pouf from India has intricate floral patterns embroidered on canvas material using cotton thread, and is available in three equally happy and bright colors.

Tippy Stools

P5,000, Heima Home and Lifestyle,, @heimastore

The creative collaboration between Googly Gooeys and Heima Home and Lifestyle for the latter’s Oh! Brighter Days (OhBD!) line resulted in these small furniture confections. The stools have round, roomy cushioned seats (available in two prints) and wooden legs—perfect partner to the sofa on series marathon nights.  

Laia Stool

P2,800*, Silla Loca, sillalocaph[at], @silla_loca

Silla Loca is a new local line of made-to-order resort furniture. One of their offerings is an elegant wicker stool that comes in white, yellow, and blue (request for custom colors may be accommodated). It doesn’t come with a seat cushion, but you could easily find one in other stores to match it—should you want a soft layer for seating.

*Also available via 

Malibu Drift Stool

P8,500, Urban Abode,, @urbanabode

The sleek and handsome Malibu Drift stool is a reliable piece of side furniture with its solid wood top and sturdy legs. It would figure well in industrial and modern spaces.  

Yellow Pouf

Price available upon request, Habitat,, @habitatmnl

This plump knitted round pouf made of cotton yarn would surely punctuate a pop of color to a room.

RL Tip: If your space is compact, make sure the other furniture pieces in the room have skinnier lines to avoid visually crowding the space.
