pouffe (n.) a tuffet, pouffe or hassock are all terms for for a piece of furniture that is used as footstool or low seat. It is distinguished from a stool by being completely covered in fabric so that no legs are visible.
pouffes ~ or pouf ottomans as they are more commonly called ~ are a very versatile addition to any space. Easily movable, they can become an extra seat, an ottoman or even a side table & can add a little whimsy or ethnic flair into a space.
