I decided that The Farmchildren needed some little comfy seat type arrangements to sit on in front of the fire. Being a child of the 70s I decided to embrace the resurgence of the pouffe. Such a multi-purpose, under-utilised bit of furniture should get another look in I think. (Or some clever design/marketing person knows the value of nostalgia as a whole generation of 70s children become parents.)
I have found memories of sitting on a cream vinyl pouffe as a child. My brother had a chocolate vinyl number and we used to put them in front of our gas heater. If you weren't careful, the vinyl would get so hot it would burn you... (Surprising, really, that they never melted.)
I found these on line for The Farmchildren and duly filled them full of beanbag beans. (That's a story for a whole other post.)
And look. Here are my beautiful babies in their PJs in front of the fire.
And, in case you need to know, here is a pouffe in all its glory.
So there you go. Cosy photos for a Wednesday night.
The Farmer is still seeding and it still hasn't rained much at all. Oh well. We will just push on.
