New Pouf

There are a lot of poufs out and about these days. Of course there is Snookie's pouf, not really my style.

And the Moroccan leather pouf.

Love it! I have been meaning to get myself one but..what? Oh, Bill just yelled that I am too cheap. So not true. O.K. a little true.


And it's not too late. I could still order me up one, or I may go for the new pouf in town...

Mister "I am crochet and all kinds of granny cool" pouf.

I am liking the new guy in the pouf parade.

I think I even saw one on Secrets of a Stylist.

I used to crochet like a fool when I visited my grandmother in Mooresville.


What do you think?
Granny or Moroccan?

  1. Love em' both! (although I like the monotone granny ones v. the multi colored ones) the Snookie mention was just too funny!

  2. how long do you think it would take you to make a crocheted one? Hey, we could be REAL granny-like and crochet our poufs and fill them with plastic grocery bags. That would fufill our 'cheap' need (cause I'm right there, too) AND we'd be recycling...

  5. I think you should get started right away making one. Don't let all that crochet talent go to waste !

  6. I've always loved the leather ones (but I'm also too cheap and my husband doesn't "get" them), but have been seeing more of the crocheted ones lately (I saw one on Secrets of a Stylist too!). Is that chunkier one considered crocheted or just knitted? It's hard to tell. Looks like a cozy sweater. That one gets my vote. Get to work, girl!

  9. Moroccan. I like the granny poufs, but the Moroccan ones are way cooler. Just ask John Derian. Look at his website in NYC and then you will be sold.

  11. Hmmm tough decision. If you can make the granny one, I say go for it. I agree with The Zhush that I really like the solid color granny ones.

  12. yikes i don't know. i'm feeling like the new poufs are a little "mammie." (my great grandmother was mammie.) her entire apartment at 89 looked like a new pouf. so those sort of make me think of snuff and candy corn. i know...it's disturbing. love my mammie...not so much the things associated with her. ;) haha! i do however, love a good leather, handstiched, pouf. and i do love your blog. :)
