Pink Moroccan Pouf

Ahhhh. I’m loving my new pouf. It is SO nice to be able to prop my feet up, AND it looks cute in the room.

Pink Moroccan Pouf

I ordered my Moroccan Pouf from John Derian, but honestly I should have probably gone with the less expensive pouf from Tazi. I was fixated on the more expensive one, mostly because of this photo from Domino. I felt like I knew what to expect and I didn’t know if the other would look the same… though it probably would have. So I do feel a bit foolish now for spending so much on a footrest, but oh well. I do like it quite a bit.

    I think it looks really pretty. And it’s worth spending a little more to have something you’re really happy with.

    Ok too funny. I go onto comment and see that the first post is written by Camilla. I thought wait a second I haven’t posted anything yet and then realized there was a double L and of course other people have the same name as me.

    Anyway back to my comment. I love the pouf! It’s all looks so pretty. I’m pink with envy. I want the pouf, the rug, the chair… I could go on and on.

    They look the same, but I imagine the John Derian is of better quality. And don’t beat yourself up over it–it’s only a $30 difference!

    The price listed at Domino is out of date… it was more like a $100 difference after shipping is figured in. *blush*

    I do imagine our little girl climbing on it too, which is a nice thought. :)

    LOVE the pouf! everytime i come to your site, i’m always envious of all the pink! my husband definitely limits the amount of pink i can use in our place..:(

    btw..congrats on the pregnancy! i just gave birth to my little girl a month ago. :)

    Sometimes it is better to go with what you know, especially if you are not viewing the competition first hand, but looking online. I have had a few experiences where the quality was not up to par.

    I bought one of these from Target last year, a faux leather dark brown one and didn’t know what it was called until I saw yours! I had been looking for floor pillows for the library part of my living room and it looked like it would work. It works as extra seating at my house but I would still LOVE some great floor pillows … any suggestions?

    It’s perfect. And so much better than putting your feet on the coffee table *gasp!*

    If it makes you feel pampered, then it was worth it! Nice find.

    100$ difference will not make any difference in the long run. But having the knock off version would have always bothered you. I think you made the right choice. It’s also one of those items that you’ll use a lot for many many years, so you’ll get your money’s worth for sure.
    Super cute!

    Wanted to tell you how cute that pouf is! I checked out both that you had links to and I like the top design of the one you bought better, plus the shade of pink is great! I think that the other one (Tazi) was not as nice a shade and if I were you it would have bothered me! I’m of the firm belief that you should invest more money on things you use everyday. This would be one of those things!!

    i think your pouf looks awesome. I totally understand that feeling you get when you wonder if it was worth it, but i agree with other commenters that in the long run you’ll probably not feel the difference and feel great about buying a quality product:) I’ve been meaning to get a pouf or even make the one from Amy Butler like you had considered too, but i can’t find the pattern. I’ve tried to find it online, but all i get is a list of materials? how do i go about acquiring instructions?

  • caroline
    March 17, 2009 at 11:00 pm

    i live in sf and have gone to tazi many times. their poufs are wonderful. i am getting a handful for my client. high quality, soft leather, clean stitching. you can even customize it. i’m sure the john derian one will be amazing too.

  • Lola

    It looks great with the rug.
    I find there’s nothing wrong in spoiling ourselves every now and then.
    It’s very good for the soul, and by being happier, it’s also good for those around us.

    In my place the pouf probably wouldn’t last very long… one of our cats loves to get her claws on everything, and so we chose our furniture based on loving it, of course, but also on being ‘olivia-proof’!

    all i can say is…SOOOO motto is…”get exactly what you want”..and besides..the pic from domino bares a striking resemblance to your pad..super cute rug..and the pouf…who wouldnt have done it! lolol

    and the thought of your sweet little baby girl climbing on the pouf and pushing it around the house when she learns to walk is all worth sitting back with your feet kicked up..daydreaming :)

    enjoy it! :)

    jenae – the rug looks like a cotton flatweave madeline weinrib rug. i have one myself in a different pattern (purchased through juliet home furnishings when i was visiting a friend in new orleans) and i love it. absolutely love it and highly recommend it. her website ( will show lots of beautiful choices. hope that helps!

    I like the one you actually bought better than the other one. From the photo of the other one, it looks more round, with less structure. I rather like the shape of the one you actually bought.

  • Heather
    March 18, 2009 at 7:18 pm

    Somehow, when you’re pregnant and uncomfy…it just doesn’t matter what it costs. I would have traded anything to have been on a comfortable couch at the end of my pregnancy but it took so darn long to be delivered, we didn’t get it until AFTER the baby was born.
    Love the lovely foot-pouf!

  • Katie

    I think you need to treat yourself when you are pregnant. Off topic, is that a cotton flatweave? I am thinking of getting something similar, but I am afraid that it will get too dirty and that it will be hard to clean. Thought? (Yours looks pristine, which is a good sign.)

    from Janet: “I like the one you actually bought better than the other one. From the photo of the other one, it looks more round, with less structure. I rather like the shape of the one you actually bought.”

    That’s what I was thinking too.

    The rug is a cotton flatweave from Madeline Weinrib (I bought it at ABC Carpet & Home in NYC). We’ve had it for about a year and it’s held up well so far. It’s reversible too, so we can always flip it over and extend the life of it.

    Oh, and those knee socks were from Target.

    I have a question or favor? I’m not sure. But I was wondering if maybe you could post a list of your favorite websites for fabric if you happen to have a list. Pretty please? I’m having a hard time finding some good sites. I have a couple like, reprodepot and purl. And also maybe some wallpaper sites, like walnut wallpaper?

    I would <3 you forever!

    I love it! I want the Dark Green (actually looks more blue) John Derian pouf now. Lovely! You made the right decision, the JD pink option is a much nicer, softer color and the design on the top of the pouf is prettier too. Nothing worse than buyer’s remorse. You should feel good that you bought something you love!

    The one you bought is also a little taller than the cheaper version so I think you got the right one. If you’re going to spend money on a footrest, you want one that is the right height for the couch so you can really kick back and relax. It’s super cute, like the rest of your house!

    Now, if only I can convince the husband to buy me a footrest like this for my birthday…
