Bovist is a decorative floor cushion, stool, and ottoman all in one. Its appealing shape and high degree of seating comfort are thanks to the large number of taken-in strips on the side and a filling of small plastic balls. Large sections of embroidery give the cover, which consists of different coloured fabrics, a particular charm and there is a knitted thread handle for moving Bovist to different places in the apartment.
