I love my poufs! I can't stop looking at them when I'm in the room with them. They are what I call an 'eye feast", because of all the brilliant colors and doo-dads on them. Love the shells on the top. But, on closer inspection, so many of the squares of material look dirty or dingy, and some of them are fraying. Now, that is okay, if they are to only be looked at, but I am truely nervous about anyone sitting on these things, or putting there sock feet on them, So, on that note, I would recommend them to a friend with reservations. You don't know exactly what you are going to get. Each one is different.
