10 Poufs To Keep Your Feet Happy

Poufs are one of my favorite go-to decorating essentials, especially now that babyproofing is high on my priority list. They’re perfectly soft, cozy and safe – but they also bring an additional layer of texture that a coffee table simply can’t compete with. In honor of my favorite decor standby, I’ve rounded up 10 fantastic poufs for every budget – in every space!:

1. Gray wool pouf ($550) at Jack and Jill Boutique
2. Knitted graphite pouf ($90) at CB2
3. Patch pouf in gray/cream ($40) at Target
4. Grey cable knit pouf ($238) at Sky Iris
5. First Block Avenue pouf ($298) at Jack and Jill Boutique
6. Safavieh large fabric pouf ($241) at RugsUSA
7. Surya pouf ($165) at RugStudio
8. Beige large pouf ottoman ($180) at Overstock
9. Indoor/outdoor pouf ottoman ($229) at Zanadia
10. Patchwork pouf ($105) at Modcloth

Here’s to quiet evenings with your feet up, eyes closed and a glass of wine nearby.

A Shoe-In For A Pillow

Think the only place worthy of your favorite leather shoes is in the depths of your closet? Think again. Artist Baptiste Viry created a patchwork cushion out of used leather shoes as part of a larger collaboration with Yellow Velvet. Of course, it’s sold out (even at $1200! Eek!), but I love the inspiration behind such an unusual object.

Amazing, right? I don’t even want to imagine how long it must have taken to make! So surreal. Hats off (and shoes?) to you, Baptiste!

Color Dipped Kitchenware

Neon and wood combinations have been a growing trend for a little over a year now, and I’m definitely on board with the look. Yet rarely have I seen the aesthetic executed so perfectly than in the shop of Wind & Willow Home – full of beautiful color blocked kitchenware in dozens of shades imaginable — all paired with wood (my favorite neutral of all!).

From bowls of every shape and size to pots, canisters and more, your kitchen is ready to get a colorful makeover indeed. And with prices falling well into the affordable range, each piece can be a treasured treat to yourself after a long, hard week.

Happy shopping!

Shop Talk: NSS

Natural Selection Studio (NSS) is the brainchild of Michigan-based Greg Gallegos and features some of the most gorgeous, handmade wood creations seen by the human eye. Naturally, we wanted to give well-deserved props for the quality and creativity displayed in one of our favorite new Etsy shops! Here are a few finds to invest in:

Sycamore pods ($42) are thin, lightweight and are begging to house paperclips, rubber bands and other miscellaneous supplies we all too often fail to stylishly contain.

Color and wood were made for each other, so these blue and orange wooden bowls ($74) are begging to be displayed either as a pair or statement-making solo for a surprising treat.

If sculptural is more your style, these wooden goblets ($64) are as inspiring as they are functional. I’d love to see mixed nuts displayed in these beauties at my next dinner party!

Lastly, if you’re into marbled wood, this set of three vessels turned from Box Elder wood have your name on it. What a lovely centerpiece they’d make!

Hats off, Greg – you have us all drooling with wooden envy!
