Buyers who took the plunge and purchased this item said that they love these poufs (ottomans). They are great as footstools, extra seating, and for sitting in front of the fire. Kids love them, too, especially for sitting around the coffee table playing games or doing puzzles. We can’t neglect to mention that they are a great deal! This is why people love Wayfair. Some customers said that they bought numerous items from Wayfair in the past and love their products and customer service. This buyer said she loves the size of these and the fact that they are stiff and sturdy to be used as an actual seat. Her son loves them as well. The only reason she didn’t give it 5 stars is that one of the ottomans arrived 3-4 days after the first. This was fine, but you could tell they both came from a different batch and, as a result, the coloring and size do not completely match. Other than that, she was a happy camper.

One buyer who purchased this item in orange said she loves the color since it is bright but a little darker like a burnt orange. She bought this to pair with a glider. It was the perfect size for a footrest and sturdy enough to sit on. She loves this item and she said she might buy another for her family room in a different color.

This item is basically a chair without the hassles involved with assembling, moving, setting up, and matching a chair with your home décor, or the difficulty of moving it from place to place. It is easy to set up, is light in weight, is not costly, comes from a known and respected design home, and is a good item to have in the home if you need an extra seat or place to rest your feet after a long day at work or school.


The photo and information provided in the customer comments and/or questions and answers may be a little deceptive. The rope is not woven as thickly as depicted in the photo; in fact, the fabric cover underneath is clearly visible. What bothers some people more is that Wayfair staff state that the stuffing is 100% cotton, which is the main reason why some people selected this item. This is untrue. The attached label lists polystyrene as the filling. If Wayfair is providing misinformation on the products they sell, we find it somewhat difficult to trust them with furniture purchases.

That said, this is a great product if you get one that is made right. One buyer who ordered two said they were both used in the same manner – as a footrest only – and one ended up still in good condition and firm. The other became too mushy so you can’t rest your foot on it without sinking. She read a review where someone had the same issue. What were the chances of this happening to others as well? Shame on the maker for not correcting the problem. This is why this buyer rated this item 1 star out of 5.

This issue was echoed by other buyers who said that their pouf only lasted a couple of weeks. The outside was made well but material from the inside that held all those tiny pill-like Styrofoam balls (polyurethane balls) tore in different places and spilled all over the floor. The buyer tried to sew the holes but they were too numerous. She finally dumped it and stated that it is just poorly made.

This is one of those items where some buyers wonder whether the manufacturer wrote all of the reviews. One buyer ordered the ottoman in yellow and, yes, it is mustard yellow – a disgusting Dijon mustard color, not a bright or soft yellow. The ottoman also came with the circle at the center of the knitting way to the side. The material is, as others have said, more like rope than yarn. As it is rough, it looks like it would get dirty easily, and it is as hard as a rock. Needless to say, she returned it.


This item has secured over 1,500 reviews, with the vast majority of the sales going to customers who eventually gave the item 5-star ratings. With an overall rating of about 4.6 on the 5-star scale, you can’t really go wrong with this item in terms of doing your homework, purchasing a highly-praised item, and getting an item that won’t break the bank for you. There are a few negative reviews, but overall, this has been an item that has satisfied customers across all walks of life.

If you are looking for a pouf that can be used in any part of the house, is not very expensive, comes in more than one color option, is relatively easy to assemble, comes with delivery that is generally quite quick, has positive reviews, and is a stunning looker, then the Grimes Pouf by Mistana is for you.

In closing, we do not accept money, gifts or samples from furniture companies in exchange for special consideration in the preparation of our reviews.
