“Our personality is a garden and our will is the gardener.” (William Shakespeare)
A nice garden sofa isn’t complete without a matching garden pouf! A pouf completes the living area of our garden as an extra seat but also as a cushion container and sometimes as a table. It can be chosen matching the sofa or the outdoor armchairs or it can be completely unmatched, creating a single seat effect. Square garden poufs are a good idea to complete sofa combinations: placed sideways, they act as tables while placed near the sofa peninsula they provide an additional seat.

are perfect to be used as coffee tables at the centre of the composition, while the round garden poufs
are perfect for lounge areas as a single seat, maybe on the lawn. As an alternative to poufs you could choose a garden footstool
to be placed next to the chaise longue or the your deckchair.
As for all the other furniture pieces in the your outdoor area, garden poufs need to be covered in a durable material. The most used materials for the structure of the pouf are wood (iroko and teak), vegetal fibers like rattan or wicker, metal like aluminium or stainless steel, or intertwined plastic that recalls rattan furniture with the difference that they are more resistant to weather conditions and wear like Polyrattan or Wicker fiber. Poufs can be entirely upholstered with fabric and can have cushions to enhance comfort. Modern technical fabrics are used like Batyline® or Sunbrella®, they are not only wear and tear resistant but also resistant to color changes caused by UV rays.
And then let’s not forget syle! Poufs have to match the rest of the furniture as well. A classic style garden pouf
made of wood or wrought iron will be a perfect complement for your country house while a contemporary style garden pouf
will give the final touch to your city terrace.
