    Italian designer Matteo Bianchi's "Muffin Pouffe" looks good enough to eat. Or is it just that I am caught up in this crazy wonderful cupcake trend?

    Presented at Tent London 2011 - one of the trade shows during London's September Design Festival, this handcrafted piece can be customized vanilla, strawberry ... with your choice of sprinkles! Muffin Pouffe is actually very functional despite its decorative exterior. Offering storage, seating, rest for aching feet ... this muffin would be a welcomed addition to any space needing a little sweetening up.

    I get that this ottoman might be a little too sweet for some spaces, and a little too wacky for others. There are some more savory occasional storage pieces and ottoman options out there. A personal favorite is the Bovist Floor Cushion by the ever amazing Hella Jongerius:

    Or Philippe Starck's adorable Gnomes Table/Stool which circle us right back to sweet as soon as you gaze into those sparkly gnome eyes and rosy cheeks.

    These little characters also serve a double, well triple, function: he is a table surface, a stool (foot or sitting), and chock a block full of personality. Gnome or cupcake, a bit of frivolity in a room just can't be all wrong.
