The next unsuspecting dummy is one minute sitting, minding his own business, on a red and white striped pouffe, before a giant spring unloads to Jack-In-The-Box him outta there.
Pouffe is a wonderful word - and a very useful piece of occasional furniture. Other names include Tuffet and Hassock. The distinguishing feature is that such an item of furniture has no visible legs - it is therefore not a stool.
The phrases Tuffet and Hassock derive from the Olde English for a grassy hillock or grassy hillock.
The pouffe is an essential item for any living room - there are of course occasions when one too many guests arrive for the living room seating capacity. There is the option of a strategically placed dining chair, or maybe even a temporarily relocated bedroom chair, but in the end a stylish pouffe can never look out of place in a classy living area.
The giant spring is of course optional.
