The Greatest Pouf on Earth


Behold: the Circus Pouf. A 20-inch spherical pillow sewn from the pieces of a traveling circus tent—or so legend would have it. You can use it as a floor cushion and sit on it. You can treat it like an ottoman and rest your feet upon it. Your pet seal can balance and roll it on his nose. And so on. It is truly the greatest pouf on earth.


If Retail Therapist had a soul, she would promptly sell it and put the money toward this versatile stuffed object, $203 at Manor, the northwest Portland home furnishings and accessories store. Besides the amazing circus pouf, Manor has many other interesting wares for your home and for your person. RT could have spent hours lounging on their luxuriously upholstered couches in a pair of Pine Cone Hill pajamas reading coffee table-sized design books, huffing lavender and eucalyptus potpourri and fantasizing about linen, linen—nothing but linen.


Manor has a fun selection of oversize letters to put in decorative baskets on your coffee table or hang on the wall, including these red, light-up marquee letters. The ampersand feels like a steal at $180, but a capital letter will run you a cool $203. They also carry Farrow and Ball paint, which is so posh you only know about it if you've read expensive European shelter magazines or overheard your designer's designer's designer talking about it. Enjoy this store—but stay focused, people. Manor Fine Wares & Curious Goods, 907 NW 23rd Ave., (503) 954-2900.
