Flocks Pouf

May 6, 2008

I actually saw the Flocks Pouf awhile ago but never got around to posting it, and after finding the picture of Meindertsma actually knitting the pouf, I may be inclined to think it’s actually worth the price.

Using extra-large knitting needles produced specifically for her enterprise, Christien Meindertsma’s Flocks Pouf (2006) is hand-knit using strong wool from New Zealand crossbred sheep. The result is a uniquely textured pouf that will bring a sense of craft to your space. The pouf is available in two sizes (medium: light grey, large: dark grey) to accommodate use as a seat, occasional table, ottoman or even as a purely organic sculpture.

Floor Cushion

April 30, 2008

Oh I’ve liked the idea of floor cushions for extra seating for awhile but all the options were rather expensive. However, this Japanese Cushion is perfectly in my price range (not sure what that says for the quality). They are handmade and filled with all-natural kapok (a vegetable fiber from seed pods).

I also like this option from west elm….of course they cost a lot more…but these you can use outdoors
