Cute and full of personality, Puku Nui is like a cartoon character you can sit on. Although inspired by time spent in Japan, Puku Nui takes its name from a traditional Māori word. It means ‘large chubby belly’. Popular for living rooms, break out areas, galleries and nurseries, Puku will happily rest on your floor like a sleepy animal in hibernation.
