extra seating or “object de art”?


Ottomans make a great addition to any space both compositionally and functionally.

I like the way in which they can be stacked or arranged to offer seating or depending on their fabrication can easily double as side tables as well.

If you have a tight space and feel a modular lounge or even an extra 2 seater seems as though it’s going to consume it, try using one couch with 1 or 2 ottomans as multi-use perches.

Besides being able to put your feet up at the end of the day you can add a dynamic element to your space that easily adds extra seats without filling up the room.

Consider them as individual personalities for some fun or as a part of the other furniture pieces when thinking about materials. They could be fabric, wool, leather or timber to name a few and be any shape or size.

Personalising them or wrapping one in a graphic material can give a stylised result. Don’t be afraid to treat it as an “object de art”.
