Need Extra Seating?

If you are looking for some extra seating for the holidays and don't want to purchase ugly folding chairs, there are many other options.  Some fun ways to accommodate more people include poufs, stools, beanbags and ottomans.  These items are versatile in both where you can situate them and their varying uses; extra seating, place for your feet and for your food.

Here are some alternatives to the everyday chair at varying price points that I think you will like...

Bovist Floor Cushion

Charles Ghost Stool by Philippe Stark for Kartell

Knitted Pouf by CB2

For less than $100, this pouf is a great addition to any room in the home.

Butt Low Stool by Established and Sons

The best thing about these stools, other than the fact that they are absolutely adorable, is that they are stackable.  So, for those urbanites this is quite the sensible option.

Primary Poufs - DWR

These poufs are great because they are made for the outdoors so they are very durable.  I have them in my backyard and we use them for extra seating as well as a place to put drinks and food.  I also think they would be super fun indoors as a night table in a child's room (no worries about sharp corners!)

Platner Stool by Knoll

How beautiful is the Platner collection?  I really want a Platner lounge chair or the coffee table for my next design project.  I would love to see the stool upholstered in a hot pink velvet.

Tatino by Enrico Baleri & Denis Santachiara

Are these stools just the cutest looking seats you have ever seen?  Love the bright bold colors....


 Apple Small Beanbag - Eazybean

Eazy Bean is a wonderful resource for children.  Their beanbags and floor cushions are both fashionable and functional.

Rose Cube Pouf by Missoni Home

 Erbario Giant Round floor Cushion by Missoni Home

While Missoni clothing is not my style, their home line is by far one of my greatest design obsessions.  From their bath towels to their fabrics I just die (feel like Rachel Zoe writing that!)
