What a great concept and I am impressed by your creativity. Can you outline the basic pattern you used? I know several of us on this site would love to know!

WOW - I love that idea. It looks great. It has a terrific retro feel to it. I like that you were not afraid to knit it in white (or ecru) as an object living on the floor. It brightens that darker corner and is a terrific focal point. Good one Phil.

Really I was affraid too, but the main composition is synthetique, so I can wash without any problem ;-)
In fact.... I hope ;-)

Not only that pouf that is amazing. Just had the chance to cheack photos of yours, all amazing.. Chapeau

The pillow is great and I am admiring the texture of the flooring as well. Is that original to the house or was it distressed to look that way. I just love it when houses are left original but if this is not, it looks terrific.

Most intriguing...especially what you stuffed it with. Great addition to your decor. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
