The Versatile Ottoman
Need a place to serve drinks, somewhere comfy to put your feet up, extra seating or a moveable feast ? That would be a custom ottoman. We love to design custom ottomans for clients for all of the above uses. Large or small, round or square, rectangle or even more than 1 in different shapes and sizes. The creative opportunities are endless. Suitable for every room.
This one designed for a client in her Connecticut living room filled with colors of the sea. Foamy blues and greens, with many textures of fabrics, silks and linens and velvets. And this oversized square ottoman is placed right in the center the seating area. Upholstered in a zebra style print, in a heavy duty needlepoint texture. We created the legs with a bit of a whimsical curve to complement the straight lines, and painted them in a metallic silver car paint which adds just the right amount of shimmer to the light filled space. Silver accents are repeated elsewhere in pillows on the sofa. This ottoman has a simple self welt but we’ve used fringe or tape or studs to vary the affect.
At the end of the bed, between 2 chairs, in front of your favorite reading chair, in your guest room, master bedroom, family room and library. I have one in all of those rooms.
Add a tray in clear lucite, antique black painted tole, Asian laquerware or vintage silver tea tray and be ready for cocktails.
