Archive for the ‘Ottoman’ Category

This large ottoman stands in the middle of my sitting room and I enjoy it much everyday. It is a great alternative to a table and serves several purpose, I rest my feet at the end of the day, I also enjoy sitting around the upholstered furniture sharing a cup of coffee with my wife and friends, display books on the ottoman, but mostly appreciate how it fits so well in the room with it’s unique shape and colorful fabric. I thought you would enjoy too.
