A New Place for Pom Poms

Pom poms: Their presence makes anything instantly more lively, and just the name is fun to say. The fuzzy orbs can be big or small in any color, and can be utilized in countless ways. But these lighthearted pieces have become more than just whimsical playthings; they’ve permeated several realms of the design world. 

They’ve been found in fashion on earrings, purses, scarves and sandals, but pom poms are  becoming popular in home decor as well. Within the home, you can dangle them like tassels, string and hang them, weave them into baskets, and more. Depending on the item, you can dress them up or down, and make them light and breezy for summer or warm and cozy for winter. I’ve hung yellow pom-pom garlands to create an accent wall in an otherwise white room. Here are some examples of the pom-pom trend: 

Pom-pom baskets spruce up laundry, or turn baskets into more than just storage. Find the pom-pom trend in baskets at Madewell, Target, Ballard Designs, PBteen, and Nordstrom.

In my opinion, pom-pom wall hangings are the most fun way to incorporate the orbs into your decorations. How else would you have the excuse to hang something fuzzy on your walls? Find them at Target and Nordstrom, but many more gems can be found on Etsy as well.

Throw pillows are already fun on their own, but adding pom poms takes them to a whole new level. Target, Saks Off Fifth, PBteen, Pier1 Imports, and Ballard Designs all offer pom-pom versions of the pillow.

Besides pillows, wall hangings, and baskets, pom poms can be made into rugs, throw blankets, faux flowers and more. While they are popular at many design stores, the trend is extremely popular on Etsy as well, if you’re looking for something a little bit more customized. Jump on board this trend and make it your own.
