The "Tarbouch" ottoman, or pouf as it is also called, by Mostapha El Oulhani is a quirky piece of children's furniture modeled after the popular Arab headgear, the tarbouch.

The tarbouch is a male head piece most commonly found in Arab and Middle Eastern countries like Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Morroco and Turkey. It is a cone-like structure with a flat top, has a black tassel dangling from it, and is covered in red felt.

In El Oulhani's design, the headgear is transformed into a felt-lined foam seat for children, hard enough to sit on, but light enough to pull by themselves.

The Tarbouch ottoman is available at Dar en Art.
