I’m very much into designer furniture, although it sometimes misses a little coziness. While I was on the hunt for the perfect pouf, my designer furniture wishlist became even more longer than it already was. The perfect equestrian inspired pouf is off course designed by my alltime favorite brand “Hermès“. The website describes the Ottoman pouf as “les nécessaires d’Hermès“. And indeed, this musthave recalls the shape of a saddle, it offers small occasional seating and practical occasional storage. This piece is crafted in the style of fine leather goods and requires intricate craftsmanship. Available in different fabrics.What is your favorite? The ones with the horse print or the leather ones?Price of the Hermès Ottoman +- 10.000€. On to some alternatives that don’t break the bank. The “equestrian saddle Ottoman” (under- right) is a golden oldie that you often see in equestrian advertising and commercials. The pouf is informed by a traditional riding saddle, transformed into a luxurious retreat. Amply padded and swathed in panels of hand-finished leather, it features quilted stitching and piped trim. It retails at +-600€ and is available at www.restorationhardware.com.
The left pouf (above) is a high quality luxury pouf Ottoman in subtle pattern and layered texture that will add chic sophistication to any living space. Available at www.scenariohome.com for 720$. I was inspired to start writing this article by these 2 pictures on pinterest. Unfortunately I don’t know the name of the brands. If you do, let me know!
