In case you haven’t noticed, Moroccan poufs have taken the world of interior design by storm, and I can totally see why. These functional yet decorative pieces instantly provide a cozy, global feel when added to a living room, and I have been quite obsessed with finding the perfect ones lately.

As most of you know by now, I am all about living beautifully on a budget and I just happened to find a way to purchase authentic, Moroccan  leather poufs for a fraction of the cost. In fact, I was able to purchase these babies straight out of Marrakesh for $50/per pouf without ever leaving the comfort of my home.

Don’t get me wrong, I would love to take an exotic vacation to Morocco, but I am short on babysitters and broke as hell.

Anyhow, I found this shop online that was based out of Morocco and sold gorgeous, hand-crafted items including poufs, throws and pillows. When I saw these tan leather poufs, I fell head-over-heels in love, but  was skeptical as to why they were so cheap.

Well, here is the catch my friends……..

To save on costs, the leather poufs are sold and shipped without any stuffing. That is how I was able to get them for only $50 a piece.

So, now you are probably wondering what I used to “stuff” them. Well, I used a combination of old towels, throws, never-used diapers that my kiddos had outgrown and plastic grocery bags.

If you prefer a firmer look, of course you need to fill it more compactly then I did but I went with this particular volume for safety reasons.

You see, my three-year-old loves to pretend he is a Power Ranger and perform karate jumps and kicks off of one pouf to the next. Given the poufs are placed in close proximity to the hearth,images of him busting his head or chin sometimes race through my mind  and I assumed it would be a bit safer if the ottomans remained a little squishy.

Ordering the poufs online for such a low price, and straight out of Morocco, was a bit of a risk, but I am happy to say it was a risk worth taking.

They are so beautiful in person, and my babies seem to enjoy them. I think it really cozied up my living room and accentuated the boho vibe that I have been gravitating to.
