When our interior designer/feng shui expert/ neighbor first recommended us buying a "pouf" I seriously thought she made up the word. But after I googled the word I realized that it does exists and there are some really cute ones. I really want to purchase one of the West Elm poufs (retail $249) but the Ikea Alseda stool ($30) is just as functional for a fraction of the price.
West Elm $249
IKEA ALSEDA Stool (stackable if you want to add height) $29.99
The ZEN modern pouf. VivaTerra Felted Wool Stone cushions, $298-595 each
