Objects Of Design #357: Knitted Pouf

Chunky knits show no sign of going out of fashion since I last wrote about them here so this new addition to the range makes me very happy indeed. Perfect as a little extra seat that can be stashed away when not needed or, probably more likely in my house, a great little footstool. At the time of writing it’s on offer so you better rush on over if you fancy one because they may not be around for long.

£80 (when not in sale)

    Where can you buy one of these dark grey knitted poufs (*357). They are no longer for sale in Debenhams and they could not tell me whether they would be getting them in again. I have one already and want to get a second one. I love it and so does everyone else that comes into the apartment.

      Hi Patricia, the whole stock must have sold out as they were listed on Amazon too but are currently unavailable so I imagine it’s a question of John Rocha putting more into production. Alternatively it might be time to get the knitting needles out. Here’s a pattern http://goo.gl/aWTYc

    I like it very much, but why do they have to put a label on it??!! May have to investigate in person and see if the label can come off.

      That’s a very good point. I’m sure you can remove it – or perhaps turn the cushion round. This is a press shot so I imagine they wanted to make the designer’s name prominent. Let us know what your investigations uncover.

    I have one of these little poufs in my family room. I love the texture it adds to the room and my cat seems to think it is his.

      They’re great aren’t they? Your cat is a very lucky boy!

      The cat doesn’t use it as a scratching post then? I can see this being very appealing to small and furry animals!
