When redesigning this Broadway starlet's living room, designer Genevieve Gorder decided to spice up the space with handmade accents that boast a unique, eclectic charm.

A mix of styles mesh to create this tranquil, sophisticated living room. A contemporary chair and tufted pouf ottomans, both in icy blue, surround a glass coffee table and Southwestern-style fireplace. The black ceiling adds depth and understated drama to the casual living space.
Floor poufs are a low-price way to add seating without investing in larger pieces of furniture, such as a sofa or chaise, say Gabriela Eisenhart and Holly Conlan with Wake + Loom Design. While you can find outdoor poufs for less than $50, you also can make your own fabric pouf ottoman in a pattern and palette that you prefer. Also, a garden stool is a versatile item that can serve as extra seating or a side table.
