In #RueSmallSpaces, our Editor in Chief shared her favorite space saving essential- poufs. Each item she chose was immediately added to our personal wish lists… so it was no question that Crystal’s selection of sleek and stylish poufs would be the inspiration behind this week’s Trick to Try.

Poufs and floor pillows are a great option for providing seating on the fly. They’re an essential item in any small space because they can be moved around easily and/or quickly tucked out of sight when needed. Plus, there’s just something a little enchanting about replacing a pair of club chairs with a few patterned pillows instead.
