Since becoming a single parent I have been sorting and organising and changing a few things round the house, to make it feel less like the home I shared with Alex and more like 'mine'. I have been sanding, painting, rearranging, slowly packing away Alex's things for him to pick up. It's in equal parts sad and emotionally helpful. I've also bought a few new things: a new bed and mattress for Eric, a new mattress for me (to put on my old pine bed that has been in the garage for far too long), cushions, storage. And with somewhat perfect timing Feather & Black super-kindly sent me their chevron pouffe in ivory and black to review.
The pouffe is available in ivory with red, black, charcoal, blue, green, taupe and orange, so it would fit in with most colour schemes. It costs £90 and is available to buy online. They are 40cm x 40cm x 40cm so they can fit smaller spaces (like my tiny lounge!)
I love the chevron print, I think it's really fun and cool whilst still fitting in surprisingly well with my quite beachy, relaxed, country style. The footstool is made from chunky cotton knit fabric with bean bag filling, which is sooooo cosy and comfy, and means you can bash it around to get it into the optimum comfy shape for your feet or bottom! I am really looking forward to putting my feet up on it after playing in the snow in the winter with a cup of tea.
It seems to be made to an excellent standard and I am genuinely impressed with it. All our bedding is Feather & Black too, and it is such good quality: crisp, high thread count cotton, it washes really well and has nice extra little touches like good buttons! So I would highly recommend the brand.
Eric adores the pouffe and likes to sit on it to watch films or play board games at the coffee table. It frequently goes missing and I will uncover it later in his bedroom where he has dragged it all the way upstairs to read on. I think it might end up living in Eric's bedroom!
Note: I was sent the pouffe to review, but all thoughts and opinions are my own and are not influenced in any way.
