Poufs & Floor Cushions
Poufs and floor cushions are stylish everyday companions and flexible all-rounders! In order to enjoy your home accessories for as long as possible, it is important to learn about materials and maintenance before purchasing.
Read on to learn everything you need to know about poufs and floor cushions.
Variation of designs
Poufs and floor cushions come in a wide variety of shapes and designs. Whether classic cube-shaped poufs, cool cylinder-shaped designs or cosy floor cushions - hardly any other home accessory is as versatile.
Before you decide on a design, ask yourself: What function should my new item of choice have? Poufs and floor cushions offer cosy seating comfort and are the perfect alternative seating for visitors.
The biggest difference: while floor cushions provide that extra kick of cosiness and are perfect for chilling out, poufs make great stylish side tables or decorative storage surfaces!
The majority of poufs and floor cushions are filled with polystyrene, small synthetic balls. Similar to bean bags, familiar from childhood days, polystyrene adapts to the movements of the body, but at the same time gives your pouf firm seating comfort and the necessary stability. Foam fillings are also an option, although they are less common. Both materials are particularly durable, allowing you to enjoy your pouf or floor cushion for a long time.
Wool & Cotton
Designs made of wool or cotton are suitable for rooms in which cosiness is a priority, such as the living room or bedroom. Poufs and floor cushions made of these materials stand out due to their pleasant texture. In the kids' room, models with sweet handmade highlights made of wool do well - ideal for snuggling up.
Jute designs exude a natural flair and are absolutely on trend. Important: Make sure that the outer material matches the other textiles in your interior, as a pouf is not only functional, but is also supposed to look gorgeous in your home! For the perfect Natural Living Style, combine other natural colours and materials. How about a trendy jute rug?
If you have underfloor heating, be sure to check when buying whether the pouf or floor cushion you have chosen can be used with underfloor heating. Some fillings or outer materials react sensitively to heat, causing deformation or an unpleasant scent. To prevent this, check the product details page with the manufacturer's information carefully.
Insider tip: In the benuta online shop, all poufs can be used in combination with underfloor heating.
Maintenance & Laundering
To keep your pouf or floor cushion as appealing as possible regular vacuuming is a must. To prevent the inner material from clumping, it is also important to shake it out and pull it into shape from time to time.
You can remove small stains with a mild soapy water solution and a soft cloth. Always test your cleaning agent on an inconspicuous area beforehand to avoid possible discolouration. If the outer cover of your pouf or seat cushion is removable, it might be allowed to clean it separately in the washing machine at up to 30°. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions.
Important: If your pouf or floor cushion has gotten extensively wet, it is necessary to air it out to avoid mould growth on the inside.
Floor cushions for outdoor use
Poufs and floor cushions are a cool addition to the terrace, balcony or garden. When buying, be sure to pay attention to the outer material. We recommend easy-care polyester PET. Similar to outdoor rugs, poufs and floor cushions made of this material are water and dirt repellent making them perfect for outdoor use.
The special feature: Polyester PET is made from recycled PET bottles and is therefore produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
Dabei bietet es sich an, alle Sitzmöbel komplett auf dem Teppich zu platzieren.
2. Ist das Wohnzimmer etwas kleiner, sollte der Teppich entsprechend kleiner sein und lediglich die Vorderbeine der Sitzmöbel auf dem Teppich platziert werden.
3. Bei kleinen Räumen bietet es sich zudem an, den Teppich unmittelbar vor das Sofa zu legen. Dabei sollten nur wenige Möbel, wie beispielsweise der Couchtisch, direkt auf dem Teppich positioniert werden.
