We love a good pouf at HGTV. Everyone should have one. Poufs are just so versatile. They can serve as cozy ottomans, extra seating in a pinch, and, with a sturdy tea tray, you can even turn them into nightstands or side tables. If you're in the market for a pouf, Pottery Barn has so many poufs — dozens of poufs. It's Pouf Barn. You can snag all kinds of styles, from boho Moroccan leather to Scandi-modern faux sheepskin, but no style is as popular as the jute pouf. This preppy nautical piece finds its way into so many designer rooms, and the natural caramel color works with just about any design style. Pottery Barn has several jute poufs, but the one the designers love is a buck short of $300. That's a lot for a pouf, even when it's perfect. So, we found a knockoff that's only a third of the price. The best part? It's actually real jute.

The Pouf

Behold the one true jute pouf. Why is it so superior? It's huge. Most poufs are around 16-20 inches. This baby is a whopping 30 inches, which is really the size of a standard small coffee table. Plus, the weave is coastal grandma style goals. Jute can be used inside and outside, making it a good all-season buy. And this loose weave will transition into fall and winter better than tighter styles. It feels less like a picnic basket or nautical rope and more like a cozy, woven throw.

The Dupe

Did you do a double-take? Look at that weave! It's the same. The color is so, so, so close, too. We found this incredible dupe at Walmart. Yes, Walmart. You can score 30 inches of jute pouf for more than $100 less at Walmart. If you're willing to drop down to the smaller 20-inch pouf, you can save more than $200. You could even buy two of the 20-inch poufs and still save nearly half the cost of one Pottery Barn pouf.

Runner-Up Dupes

But, wait! There's more. If you're willing to drop two more inches, you can snag a real 18-inch jute pouf from Amazon for just $70. This is such a savvy buy for dorm rooms or small studio apartments where, honestly, that Pottery Barn pouf just wouldn't work.

While not as cheap as the Walmart dupe, this 20-inch jute pouf from Overstock has the best color match. It's still a steal at less than half the price of the Pottery Barn pouf!
