A pouf is one of the most popular pieces of furniture. Such products do not take up much space, but they are very functional. Miniature ottomans fit into any interior, give users comfort, create coziness. Almost every furniture manufacturer has such a category of goods in its assortment. IKEA was no exception. The article will tell you what puffs she offers to buyers.
The IKEA brand appeared in Sweden in 1943. Since then, it has grown to become a world famous company with a huge network of production and distribution points. The company produces a wide range of household goods. These are furniture for various residential and office premises (bathroom, kitchen, rooms), textiles, carpets, lighting fixtures, bed linen, decor items. Laconic but stylish design and affordable prices win over customers, forcing them to return to the store for new purchases. All products are made from environmentally friendly materials. New pieces of furniture may give off a slight odor after being removed from the packaging. The company warns buyers about this on the official website and assures that the aroma is not a sign of toxic fumes and completely disappears within 4 days.
The company's policy is to use wood only from legally cut forests. It is planned to switch to the use of raw materials from certified forestry, as well as processed products. The metal used in the production does not contain nickel.
And also when creating items of upholstered furniture, brominated flame retardants are excluded.
The brand's poufs are presented in several models, suitable for use in a city apartment and in the country. Despite the modest assortment of this category of goods, there are all the main varieties of such products.
