Our family room is long with a step down in the middle which creates the feel of two separate rooms. The top level is where we have our desktop computer, bookshelves and toys and therefore where our Z spends a lot of her time. The lower level has our couch, TV, coffee table and a couple other odds and ends (this is where Maxine the cat hangs out, see below).
There is an interesting phenomenon with this set-up when we have guests over…everyone sits on the floor of the upper level. Whether it’s to get down to play with the kids or to sit on the step and watch a sporting event on TV, the ground of our upper level is almost always a guest seat.
So, when I saw this adorable pouf on Pinterest, I was sold. What a perfect piece to have in the family room to be a sometimes-table-surface and a sometimes-guest-seat so they don’t have to sit on the floor. And it’s orange! Which I’ve mentioned is the color of our family room and it would coordinate perfectly. But, even after speaking with a rep from Nordstom at Home, I was told tragically this pouf in orange is sold out – they will not get any more in stock – ever.
And now I am on the hunt for a replacement. Here are some contenders, what do you think?This striped blue one from CB2. I like the handle, it’s totally moveable.
This Pull Up a Pouf from Land of Nod is really cute and the color would coordinate with our couch.
Also from Land of Nod this Grey Herringbone pouf, but not sure I like grey.
Cute chevron pattern from an etsy seller – she has tons of colors and patterns, so maybe this is the way to go.
