Ottomans

Beanbag Ottoman and Chair

Beanbags normally have negative associations, but these are too good of a price to rule out just because you had one when you were a kid.

“Lounge in comfort. Durable, water-resistant poly shell with poly fill. Generously sized. Versatile as a coffee or side table, foot-rest or extra seating. Gold or white.”

Coffee Table, 31″sq x 11″h., $179.00

Cork Ottoman

If the
Cork Table and Stool by Jasper Morrison seem a little too expensive, here’s an alternative. Personally, I’d save up another $100 and get the Morrison ones, but maybe the proportions or the price tag of this one are friendlier for some of you…

“Sustainably grown natural cork backed with fabric is upholstered over a dense foam cylinder. Natural.”

24″ diam x 13″h.

Lane Chair

This hard to miss chair comes with a removable felt color and is actually pretty affordable considering it includes an ottoman.

Nicole Ottoman

Large ottomans for coffee tables are one of the better ideas for a living room. It’s much more comfortable to put your feet up on something soft than on wood or glass, of course, but it also softens up the whole feel of the room, eliminating those hard corners that our shins inevitably find one way or another. Large ottomans like this can also double as extra seating for large gatherings as well.

Rondo Pouf

I’ve got to say that I love these in the Apple store, and I like this version too. The Rondo Pouf is a nice sturdy ottoman perfect for seating and they’re really quiet comfortable.

Bovist Pouf

I hadn’t really thought much of these until I saw them in person- they really do have a ‘particular’ charm that lends some character to the room it’s in. Sure, it’s a bit more of a dent in your wallet than any ol’ ottoman, but it has a bit more personality, so that’s the trade off.

“Bovist is a decorative floor cushion, stool, and ottoman all in one. Its appealing shape and high degree of seating comfort are thanks to the large number of pleats on the side and a filling of small plastic balls. Large sections of embroidery give the cover, which consists of different colored fabrics, a particular charm and there is a knitted thread handle for moving Bovist to different places in the home.”

Designed by Hella Jongerius.

Round Leather Ottoman

Silver isn’t your most common choice for a footrest, or for any other upholstered piece of furniture for that matter, and maybe that’s why it’s so appealing. If you’re not into the silver, it’s also available in chocolate.

“Sleek, chic leather is upholstered over a dense foam cylinder. Indispensable as a side table, footrest, nightstand or extra seat.”

Spacecube

What a steal- one, two, three or four of these would function quite well as a table/ottoman, and with removable slipcovers, it’d be a cinch to clean up (or change) your living area.

“The latest multifunctional idea from Danish designer Stine Engelbrechtsen is the Space Cube, where simplicity and ingenuity meet in a soft fabric-covered block that can function as a stool, table or ottoman. At 8 lbs, the Space Cube is also light enough to move easily and often, and can be used in multiples, whether in public waiting rooms or in children’s areas where soft surfaces are called for. The cube is resilient yet solid, and is upholstered in a blend of linen and cotton that offers visual texture, a soft hand and enduring strength. The slipcover is easily removable for dry cleaning.”

Cell foam and polyester fiber; upholstery, 74% cotton, 20% viscose, 6% linen.

Available in Anthracite, Brown, Lime or Red Orange.

H 16″ x W 18″ x D 18″

Vega Chaise, Sofa & Ottoman

“The Vega Collection (2005) provides a unique solution for environments used for socializing, lounging and sleeping. Created by designers Busk & Hertzog, Vega consists of a multifunctional Sofa, Chaise and Ottoman. 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, three 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 backs. Use a flat sheet for best fit. Two down pillows are included with the Sofa and one with the Chaise. Made in Denmark.”

Don Lounge Chair and Ottoman Set

This chair is currently discounted about a $1000. I want one now.

“Comfort in seating is harder to achieve on a small scale, but the Don Lounge Chair (1999) by Gerard van den Berg exceeds all expectations. As part of the chair’s studied proportions, a high, angled back supports the head and neck while allowing for a slight recline. The seat widens at the knee to allow for different seating positions and for use with the coordinating ottoman. Cushions with internal spring suspension provide even support and hold their form. Buttery soft leather upholstery is precisely tailored to have taut, straight seams and long-lasting appearance retention. The steel hairpin sleigh base was specifically designed to support the Don while maintaining a graceful aesthetic. Made in the Netherlands. “

Kartell products are on sale through Midnight May 14th at highbrowfurniture.com. I especially like the Trix, which can be configured as an ottoman, a chair, a lounge or a bed. How versatile!

Trix can be the original pouf for two people. It can also be turned into a cosy bed, a comfortable lounge chair and a welcoming arm chair.
