In this post: Need a little footstool for your living room or bedroom? Here’s where to find the best, most affordable, farmhouse style pouf ottomans online.

We’ve been working on a little living room makeover this month. If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you know we recently chose a couple of pouf ottomans for the space. You may also know we didn’t love the ones we chose.

So, we’ve been on the hunt for different versions of the pouf ottoman to pair with our new chairs. And since I really do loving shopping – especially for a bargain – I thought it may be fun to sort of virtually take you with me!

Where the Poufs Will Live

First of all, let’s look at where the new poufs are going to live. 

Recently, we sold our oversized chairs that lived by the fireplace for the last two years. We replaced them with two of the Loredana Barrel Chairs from Wayfair (it’s often out of stock, sorry!).

We still have some work to do in here – mainly to build a coffee table – but this is the general gist of how the space will look. (Of course, I’d love to replace the floors at some point too!)

(The striped outdoor ottoman is not staying – it’s simply a place to put our feet up until the coffee table is finished.)

Over the holidays, I ordered these Moroccan style ottomans from Amazon. And while I like the style okay, I find the finish to be way too orange for the soothing and calming look I want to have in here.

So, I’ve been on the hunt for some new ottomans!

Here are plenty of options that would work in this space – and maybe even your space too!

If I wanted to stay with the same style, there is a white Moroccan style option.

Or I suppose a faux fur pouf could be fun?

Another possibility would be this square, boho, Moroccan wedding style of ottoman. Although I think it may be a bit much with the new rug

These Straw Cover Cushion Ottomans remind me of the Ikea footstools. 

But I think I prefer to go in another direction, back to a knitted style pouf.

(We went away from that previously because the doggie like to pull at the rope. But if we use the bitter apple spray we used when he was a puppy to deter chewing, I think we’ll be okay.) 

There are so many knit types to choose from!

What I Ultimately Chose

I ultimately chose to go with some pretty neutral knitted ottomans for our living room.

My aha moment!

I found my style and was able to bring our small space together for our family of 8! My aha moment was when you talked about undertones! That was the moment when I could bring everything together.

Falling in love with our home again

My ah-ha moment was when I realized I was going about things all the wrong way. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. BUT now because of your course...I am falling in love with our home all over again.

Filled me with the confidence I need

Oh Shannon, thank you, thank you thank you!!  I wish I could download you and take you with me, but your Decor Staples Checklist has definitely given me the guidance and filled me with the confidence I need!

Love this idea!

Orbs are such a great decor item to add to a space. Staining the hoops really gives them a vintage feel. Thanks for the inspiration.


I love your instructions!

LMAO!! I love your How Not to Paint Cabinet instructions! It made me laugh with good humor! Kudos for sharing your lessons learned!!

Done with Haphazard Decor!

I'm so done with Haphazard Decor! (Yes, I think I just made that "style" up). Thank you for your style quiz!


So Accurate!

I thought the quiz was so accurate, I want my friends to do it. I feel I like such a mix of things and the quiz described them all so well!
