Hi everybody! What terms do you use for the yellow chairs that the woman and the man sit on?

Your answers will be highly appreciated.

Ottomans.
Tuffets (is that how you spell it?)
Poofs (don't even . . .)
Large yellow hockey pucks.
Very uncomfortable, if I have to sit there for a long time.

Another example of Amglish there Shelley. When we have to use the stupid things we sit on a pouffe. (Poo-fay)

The website calls them ottomans - a descriptions that seems odd as (I believe) an ottoman must include storage. Typically, in my life, a seat at the end of the bed where extra blankets were kept.

Without the storage I would call it a hassock. A pouffe is simply stuffed, like a large cushion, and would not keep its shape.
