The must-have piece every home should have

MASTERFULLY DETAILED POUFS

There's a whole lot of pretty in this shot, but these masterfully detailed linen poufs definitely steal the show. The effect of the cream-colored rope trim paired with dyed tibetan lamb's wool tassels is anything but humdrum, and the poufs are just as engaging as the conversation you'll be having over those cocktails with future guests.

BOHO FLOOR POUFS

A living room quickly transforms into a welcoming bohemian haven with floor poufs and cushions in varying textures and colors. Allow for storage that's easy on the eye by placing them under a coffee table with clean lines

GARDEN STOOLS

Incredibly versatile, garden stools are the furniture accents that will never break the bank. Choose from an array of styles (think high gloss ceramic, weathered porcelain or mixed metals) to compliment your space, and utilize having a bit more surface area for any additional decor and your glass of vino.

GLAMOROUS X BENCHES

Glowing brass craftsmanship and bold upholstery make these x benches the perfect statement in the living room. They beg to be used as seats, occasional tables or footrests.

A TUFTED OTTOMAN

A tufted ottoman is temptingly tactile, and serves as a more intimate and inviting piece than a coffee table. Consider a contrasting color to avoid a matchy-matchy room.

FUR STOOLS

Fur stools are just as interesting as they are soft. Put the pair under an acrylic or lucite coffee table and voila; you have a stylish and practical set of seats waiting to be put to use.

A TEXTURAL RATTAN OTTOMAN

Here, a natural rattan ottoman plays perfectly alongside a cool marble coffee table. The counterpoint of textures masterfully enhances the room's overall aesthetic. And with a stack of books and a small vignette, the ottoman is just as functional as it is stylish.

Ottomans, poufs and garden stools are quite the rage among design influencers, and for good reason. It can be agreed that these small-scale decor accents effortlessly build visual interest in any room, and with obtainable price tags, they're nestling into warm, inviting living spaces everywhere. The possibilities are truly endless in a myriad of colors, shapes, sizes and textures as they offer added surface area for styled vignettes and additional, unexpected seating. But maybe the greatest part about it all? You can transition the piece to another room when you're craving an easy refresh. And since we're always looking for pieces that are just as stylish as they are functional, decorative ottomans, floor poufs and stools quickly earn a spot at the top of all of our home decor wish lists.

These small-scale design accents aren't necessarily new to our scene. As you may remember, the two Cecil poufs spotted in MKR's One Room Challenge 2015 final reveal (pictured above) really stole the show, and proved that floor poufs pack a punch that's anything but small. Once considered mostly a bohemian decor accent, floor poufs and the like can now be found in many contemporary rooms with smart details and styles that are anything but beatnik.

What do you think about incorporating these imaginative pieces in your home? Quite the perfect way to feather your nest, don't you think? Click through the slideshow above to find design and styling inspiration, along with our favorite finds! Cheers, Kat​
