POUFFE! I love that word! Its sound has an element of surprise to it, something unexpected. And I guess that’s exactly the effect that designer Johannes Steinbauer went for when he designed the new Rolf Benz 953. I got my new pouffe as a gift a couple of weeks ago and let me tell you – this thing has been all over the place! It’s not like I can’t decide where to put it. Rather, I’ve used my pouffe for a million things (well, now you’re exaggerating a bit, Mr. Interiorator). It’s been used as an extra seat for guests and I also figure out after a while it makes for an excellent occasional table when I put a tray on top of it.
Now, the Rolf Benz 953 is available in red, green, blue and gray. I went for the red version, although the color is more like a red with an orange undertone when you look closely. In any case, the Kvadrat Divina looks fantastic and because it’s one hundred per cent wool it has a nice luxurious feel to it.
And you know what? I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how our living room has changed through the years. It used to be a boring affair with taupe walls (I know, don’t get me started) and all the wrong furniture. Now, it looks a thousand times better with dark blue walls, art from Kunstuitleen Rotterdam on every wall and of course my giant blue Roman head by Maddnes. Interior decoratoring done right is always a bit of a journey and I’m glad that my new Rolf Benz 953 pouffe has added some extra oomph along the way!
My pouffe goes perfectly with the striped painting by Ditty Ketting in the background.
The Rolf Benz 953 is Made in Germany (like my sister-in-law) and is available now for the very affordable price of 295 euro’s.
