The biggest advantage of puffs is that they can be easily rearranged and adapted to changing needs and room layout.

Where to buy a puff?

Proven manufacturers use high-quality materials, which translate into durability and comfort of the puff. Solid materials mean that the furniture will serve you for many years without losing quality. One such company is VOX. It is also worth checking out Kave Home's offer. The full list of manufacturers we recommend can be found in the search engine of the Products for Home portal under the keyword „puff”.

What kind of upholstery material can be used for the puff?

Upholstery fabrics are most often used to upholster puffs. They are available in a variety of colors, patterns and textures, allowing you to match the puff to your interior design. Natural leather-covered puffs are elegant and durable. Leather gives a room a luxurious look, but it is important to remember that it requires proper care. An alternative to natural leather is eco-leather, which is cheaper and more environmentally friendly. The puffs can also be upholstered with synthetic materials, such as microfiber, polyester or acrylic. These materials are easy to clean, stain resistant and can mimic the look of other fabrics. Linen upholstered puffs are lightweight, pleasant to touch and give the room a natural feel. Puffs upholstered with wool are their opposite. This kind of furniture is warm and soft. Wool upholstery adds coziness to the room. If the puff will be used outdoors or in a place prone to dirt, it is worth choosing upholstery made of waterproof materials. On the other hand, puffs with upholstery in interesting patterns can provide a compelling decorative element. If you suffer from allergies, choose puffs made of hypoallergenic materials.

What can a puff be filled with?

Styrofoam balls

This is one of the most popular fillings for puffs. Styrofoam balls are lightweight, flexible and conform to the body shape, which makes the puff comfortable and soft.

Polyurethane foam

Puffs filled with polyurethane foam are lightweight, but still offer better support than polystyrene balls. They are also more resistant to deformation.

Polystyrene microgranules

These are granules that are smaller than traditional polystyrene balls. This makes the puff more flexible and comfortable. Microgranules are also more durable and resistant to kneading.

Polyester fiber

Puffs filled with polyester fiber are soft, comfortable and lightweight. However, they may lose their original shape more quickly.

Sponge-filled puffs offer solid support and are more resistant to deformation than other materials. Choose them if you need a more rigid seat.

Flexible polyurethane balls

This is a material that combines the flexibility of polystyrene balls with the durability of polyurethane foam. It is a more advanced filling that guarantees comfortable and durable support.

Mix of materials

Some puffs may contain a mix of different filling materials. As a result, they offer the advantages of several fillings.

Natural fillings

In some cases, especially in the production of more eco-friendly puffs, you can find fillings made of natural materials such as linen, organic cotton or wool.
