The Ultimate Floor-Seating Furniture for Every Single Room

Monica Wang Photography

Entertaining a group can be a challenge for many reasons. You have to choose appetizers and drinks, decorate if there’s a theme, and even curate the perfect playlist. So, when you realize you don’t have enough seating for all of your guests, it can be the final straw. Since it’s not really “proper” to throw your friend a thin pillow from the couch and expect them to sit on top of it on the floor, what are you to do?

Well, thankfully, many designers are now making chic floor seating that doubles as décor (even if you don’t need the extra seating, you can still make a chic statement). There’s everything from modular loungers to tufted poufs and even mini stools… and their poppy prints and luxurious textures make them even more eye-catching. We’ve searched high and low to find the best floor-seating furniture. Keep scrolling to see our top picks.
