pouf it

Not done with the pouf craze? Here they are with a bit of granny chic thrown at them. When I first looked at these, I wasn't sure I loved them. Totally appreciated them from a fine art perspective, but that's where it stopped. But the more I check them out, the more I'm digging them. They actually have more of a Turk's Head Knot feel to them- a sailor's knot sort of thing. Beachy. And chunky. I change my mind. I do love them.
by designer Christien Meindertsma, using crossbred sheep {which puts my mind at ease} giant hacky sacks ? no, just more poufs of a different persuasion. Found these and wanted to add to the post. by designer catherine wilson.
and one more to add to the line up....thank you, More Ways to Waste Time { one of my favorite blogs-that's currently on sabbatical } for pointing me toward the CB2 knitted pouf.
On closer inspection, this looks like someone at C&B did a little knock-knock. Hate, when artist's get so blatantly ripped off by huge corporations who can copy their work with cheap labor. boo on them.

CB2 has a knitted pouf now for $80: http://www.cb2.com/family.aspx?c=106&f=5756. I love the ones from Europe, but they're crazy expensive.
