Ottomans

Tato Footstools

As usual, these odd footstools caught my eye. I’m not liking the price as much as the strange imagery, but what can you do, right?

Egg-shaped foam footstool with drawstring/removable stretch cover in three-dimensional motif. Plastic base. 19″ tall. 56″ diameter. Dry clean.

Donna Wilson ‘Pouffes’

These poufs not only add pattern and interest to a room, but also they add a soft texture to a seating area. Plus, you can’t go wrong with anything done by Donna Wilson, or maybe you can and I just refuse to believe it.

*Each is made by hand stuffing Calico bags and upholstering them with knitted panels, reminiscent of segments of an orange.
*Upholstered in a specially designed Donna Wilson knitted wool pattern made in Scotland.

Upcycle Ottoman

How do you feel about feed bags as upholstery? It sounds sort of awful (doesn’t it?) but I actually like the way these ottomans look.

The Upcycle Ottoman is upholstered using a supply of surplus jute bags previously used to transport organic coffee beans. The durable bags, which would otherwise be thrown away, have been repurposed to make an original accent piece. The jute features screen-printed stencils and logos which identified the original goods, making each ottoman completely unique. Bench-Made in Canada.

18d x 18w x 16h (inches)

Suzani Coffee Table

Call me crazy, but I love the fabric on this coffee table/ottoman. I want it.

An antique and decorative tribal textile made in Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, and other Central Asian countries, suzani-or needlework-is synonymous with that region’s glorious embroideries. Traditionally used as wall hangings and prayer mats, they were a treasured addition to a bride’s dowry. In keeping with our values, we created a thoroughly eco suzani collection made from 100% organic cotton, eco-friendly dyes, and sustainable sheesham wood.

51″W x 31″D x 15″H.

Lana and Flora Pouf

Talk about texture, these poufs seem like they took hours upon hours to create, which makes me wonder where they were made and how the flowers are connected (stitching or glue?).

A true focal piece in any room, this stunning pouf is covered in hundreds of laser-cut wool flowers to create a unique and functional piece.

Vega Collection

This is probably one of the more versatile sofa/sectionals out there, and until tomorrow (Jan 27), you can get DWR’s upholstery sale price as well as free shipping (Feb 3), which all adds up to some pretty significant savings.

The Vega Collection (2005) provides a unique solution for environments used for socializing, lounging and sleeping. When a larger Sofa is needed, the Chaise and Ottoman are ready to oblige; slide the pieces together to create the required size. Should a sectional be in order, two or more pieces can be quickly combined. For further flexibility, the arm of the sofa can be positioned on either side and changed on a whim. The Sofa and Chaise transform into comfortable sleepers by sliding the seats – which rest on metal bases with internal tracks – and folding down the arm of the Sofa or the back of the Chaise. Made in Denmark.

The Avenue First Block / Parc

The stitch print on these ‘blocks’ would really give a feeling of texture to a room, and considering how easy the fabric is to care for it’s a no brainer for kids or pets.

The chic design is ideal for any space, from your office to your outdoor patio. The different shapes of the avenue include a square design, called the first avenue, and a quarter circle design, called the second avenue. Each of these models is available in a geometric stitch print, “the block”, or a floral stitch motif, “the parc.”

Cake ottoman

Do you ever wish that a store would say, “Hey, why not pick something out for free, we’re feeling generous today…”?

The Cake ottoman is a great accent piece for any room. Change its personality by simply changing your choice of fabric. There are numerous fabric and leather options from which to choose.

Sheep by Sam Brown

These sheep might be just the thing to add a little touch of playfulness to a room.

“Born and bred on the Isle of Wight, although the Sheepskin is from New Zealand. Sheep seats make perfect city pets. There’s no need for a garden and these Sheep seats make great occasional seating with fun personalities. Perfect for adults and kids to sit on, and the child sheep can even be used as a footstool.”

Black/Ivory New Zealand sheepskin. Beech-wood legs with rubber “hooves”.

Dimensions: Adult H 64, W x D 61 cm; Child H 40, W x D 35 cm
