Rectangular is the primary shape, supplemented by round, square, and other fancy shapes. Here are some tips on what shape will be right for you:
- Rectangular -- A universal shape that will blend with any décor. Choose it if you will be placing it aside from your sofa or other rectangular sitting arrangements.
- Square -- Its sharp edges will complement the other edged furniture. It will also offer a spacious storage cabinet beneath the seat.
- Round -- Its smooth curves will not obstruct movement in a compact room. You also have good placement choices -- in the middle of a sitting arrangement or on its sides.
Whichever shape you select, remember that ottomans are accent pieces, so choose a shape that will be in harmony with the other shapes of furniture.
For poufs - round, cylinder, and cube are the predominant shapes. Round poufs will be best placed in the company of other round décor elements. It can be your choice if you have a round mirror, a round coffee table, or a circular sofa. Cube poufs will look great in modern interiors as their edges are distinctive of this style.
13"-20"H X 20.5"D. Width will depend upon the number of seats, with about 26" for each seat.
Select the height that matches the other coordinated seating arrangements. The best height is 15 ½", the same as that of a coffee table. However, be careful that the height of your sofa and ottoman is nearly the same, so that all those who are seated are on the same visual plane.
Standard size is 13"H with 17 ¾" diameter.
You can get bigger and smaller poufs than the standard size but we advise that you select the size that will not be disproportionate with your living area.
Standard size: 14 ¾"H X 14 ¼"W X 14 ¼"D.
It is a very handy size that you can move around easily, which gives you great configuration and placement options.
