Best Overall: Marrakesh Gallery Moroccan Pouf

Marrakesh Gallery Moroccan Pouf

This Moroccan-style floor pillow from Marrakesh Gallery has everything you might want from a floor pillow. Its sophisticated leather design will add some rustic coziness to just about any room, and you can choose from seven different color options to best suit your space. We're particularly partial to the dark brown option for a more refined look, while the all-white would make a great addition to beachier decor. You can sit on it like a stool or lean up against it for a little extra back support.

While you'll need to provide your own stuffing, this high-quality piece is relatively affordable and will last you for many years to come.

Best Budget: House of Hampton Asaad Square Pillow Cover & Insert

House of Hampton Asaad Square Pillow Cover

Just because you’re looking for something wallet-friendly doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort or style. House of Hampton's Assad Square Pillow pillow provides a cozy spot to sink into, even on the hardest floors. The stylish velvet cover comes in six attractive jewel tones that look great in just about any space. And at this price point, we love the idea of getting a couple of these pillows and layering them on the floor.

Best Splurge: Anthropologie Moroccan Wedding Pouf

Moroccan Wedding Pouf

If you want a high-design piece that will stand out, consider splurging on this Moroccan Wedding Pouf from Anthropologie. This special piece has a truly unique look: it’s made by stitching together a variety of woven panels sourced from traditional Moroccan wedding blankets, so no two are exactly alike.

In addition to its beautiful aesthetic, this pouf is highly structured, so it’ll hold its shape for years to come.

Best Oversized: Intelligent Design Edelia Foldable Poly Chenille Lounge Floor Pillow

 Intelligent Design Lounge Floor Pillow Cushion

Try a larger floor pillow for lounging—not just sitting! This oversized option from Intelligent Design is great for stretching out while watching TV or propping against the wall for extra back support. Kids will also love these pillows and might even nap on them during quiet time. 

At just over 6 feet long, this pillow is large enough for most adults. You don’t have to worry about it taking up too much space all the time, as it rolls up and secures with a wrap for easy storage. 

Best Pattern: Cost Plus World Market Blush Abstract Symbols Pouf

Blush Abstract Symbols Pouf

Patterns can go with just about anything if they're in a neutral tone. Just take this dusty-rose pouf from World Market: understated enough to complement a range of decor schemes, it has a multi-colored abstract pattern that will add visual appeal to your space. It's made in India of cotton and polyester—and because pattern placement varies, no two are the same.

Best for Playrooms: Hashtag Home Elijah Pouf Floor Pillow

Elijah Pouf Floor Pillow

When searching for a floor pillow for your kids’ playroom, the most important consideration is comfort (especially if your children are constantly jumping around!). Focus on getting something super soft and cozy, so they have a soft place to crash for relaxing and reading. 

This fuzzy pillow fits the bill. Available in ten fun colors, you can expect this piece will get a lot of wear and tear in the playroom. Thankfully, it's affordable enough that you can get two.

Best Outdoor: Tiita Round Floor Pillow

Tiita Round Chair Cushions

Don’t rule out floor pillows for outdoor or semi-outdoor spots, like lanais or enclosed patios. You might have to be a little more thoughtful about cushions that are specifically manufactured for both indoor and outdoor use to ensure they’ll hold up to the elements and temperature fluctuations. 

The Tiita pillow is versatile: it can be used as a floor pillow, a swing seat cushion, and some fixed outdoor chairs. To give it a refresh, simply toss it in the washing machine on a gentle cycle.
