Design by Arne Quinze, 1999.
Made in Belgium by Quinze & Milan.
It's a stool, a chair, a table, and an eye- catcher in its own right. Soft materials and a simple design language are the tried-and-true formula for this happy marriage. The sassy character of the comfortable, water-repellent Primary Pouf 01 has worldwide appeal. Look for the "Primary" collection in prestigious public spaces from San Francisco and Detroit to Cannes and Porto. Available in an extensive range of QM™ Foam colors.

Primary pouf always delivers
By: Shrubberyljp, Architect (Chicago)
It's as clean and colorful in real life as in its picture, and for a "pouf" not terribly uncomfortable. I don't recommend this product for outdoor use in wet climates, though- if the exterior seal on the foam is damaged at all, it will take on water like a giant sponge.
Primary pouf does not disappoint
By: Lindsey (Chicago)
It's square, it's soft, it's full of color. Just as seen online, this is the perfect piece to add color to a modern seating area.
Excellent stool for indoors or outdoors - the color selection is amazing!

These poufs are really one of our favorite things in our house and our guests love them to. They are really comfortable to sit on and come in really interesting colors to complement any decor. We have some of these outside and also at the foot of our bed. We did the chocolate, camel and sand colors at the end of our bed and they really look great and we have gotten compliments from everyone who has visited our house. These hold up well too to prolonged use. The ones we purchased 5 years ago look as good as the ones we just purchased last week. In case you never saw these in person, when you sit on them they are very spongey or bouncy and really conform to you, so they are very comfortable especially if someone has to use one for a long period of time if they are watching a movie or at a deck party. This product as well as yliving's customer service is top notch. Order one or a couple, you will not be disappointed and the value is definitely there for the long term.
Nothing to not like!
By: Thomas B., Homeowner (Washington DC)
Have 3 other identical pieces in different colors. Use on my terrace as end tables, extra seats or together as a squarecoffee table. During cold weather they are used in my loft as the same way. Everyone loves them.
By: Options1109, Homeowner (Miami Beach, FL)
We have now ordered 4 Poufs and absolutely love them! We use them as seating and as a table between 2 outdoor chairs. The top is firm enough to use as a seat or as a table top. The color selections are numerous, our favorite being the grey base with orange top, but the grey and green tops look fantastic as well. Very modern, versatile, very light, very well made and sturdy. A must have for cool seating or as a table.
My favorite piece of furniture
By: Deka, Homeowner (San Francisco, CA, USA)
I absolutely love the primary poufs!! The colors are amazing. They look so good in the living room, in the foyer, on the balconey... They always work! And, it's so much fun putting different colors together. They are sturdy (I sometimes use them as stepping stools) and easy to clean. The color never fades. One day, I'll have every color.
I LOVE these stylish, durable Pouf benches.
By: Susie Q., Homeowner (PDX)
Pouf stools paired together make for a great entryway bench. They are also light enough and durable so that my son can utilize them in the many spaceships he creates in our living room. The color is bright and adds a great pop to the monochromatic vibe we have in the space.
