5 reasons why we’re loving pompoms

Everything you need to know about the Pompon trend

We know them as the cute companion to the humble beanie but, pompoms have grown up and are adding bohemian flare to cosy textiles. Hooked to the edge of a throws or neatly dotted around cushions, pompoms are the must-have adornment and this is why we love them:


1. They add a playful twist to a traditional scene

If you’re thinking about shaking up your usual style, a pompom throw in a block colour can add just the right amount of texture and fun without feeling too boho. Head to Zanui for a range of single colour pompom throws.

2. They come in all shapes and sizes

These delicate little pompoms dotting the Shannon Fricke ‘Twinkling Night Star’ cushion add just a hint of whimsy. While the chunky, oversized pompom tassels on Kip & Co’s ‘Tassel’ throw add oomph and luscious texture to the bedding. 

3. They’re sophisticated too!

Here, the playful pompom takes on a more serious tone on the ‘Ines’ throw from Country Road when paired with deep hues and classic bedding.

4. They’re trans-seasonal

Beachy and bohemian for summer, or luxurious and cosy for winter – pompoms have you covered year-round. The black and white Moroccan wool blanket from Atelier Lane (middle) is a staple pompom piece for use all year long. 

5. Cute for kiddies

There are so many ways you can incorporate pompoms into your little one’s room or nursery. Here, a homeowner crafted this gorgeous pendant herself by tying handmade pompoms to the chord. While, this Mooi Baby ‘Pompom’ playmat in Gelato is truly sweet.
