Make the ottoman of your choice from our wonderful selection

Choose – in this workshop you can choose the style of Ottoman you want to make. We have five great designs that are available with or without piping. Be tempted by Oscar, Hugo, Slim Jim, Eero or The Rollo.

Oscar

Oscar the ottoman

Oscar

Our original design with classic mid-century tapered legs made from recycled timber, the ottoman is compact in size but big on attitude and perfect for adding character wherever you put it. Ideal in the bedroom, living room, on the verandah or even as a statement piece in your entry. Use it as a seat, a footstool or even as a coffee table.

Height: approx. 47cm
Diameter: approx. 50cm



Hugo

Hugo the Ottoman

Hugo

Hugo is the same overall size as Oscar but has a deeper sidewall and shorter, vertical legs. Just perfect for a bold fabric that will scream “Look at me!”. Legs are from recycled timber too.

Height: approx. 47cm
Diameter: approx. 50cm





Slim Jim

Slim Jim the ottoman

Slim Jim

With beautiful plywood tapered timber legs and slim profile top, Slim Jim ottoman is compact in size but big on attitude and perfect for adding
character wherever you put him. Ideal in the bedroom, living room, on the verandah or even as a statement piece in your entry. Use it as a seat, a footstool or even as a coffee table.
Height: approx. 47cm
Diameter: approx. 65cm



Eero

Eero the ottoman

Eero

Our newest addition to our Ottoman range with a mid century modern vibe . . . the Eero. It is named after the Finnish/American architect Eero Saarinen who was famous for creating the retro look we so love today. Generous size, simple clean lines, iconic hairpin legs…just add a piece of iconic fabric and you’ll have an ottoman that will be a real conversation starter.

It is just perfect as a footstool, extra seating or a coffee table. We have two types of hairpin legs – you can choose which type you like on the day.

Height: approx. 45cm
Diameter: approx. 62cm

The Rollo

The Rollo

The Rollo

The Rollo is awesome! Use it as a stool, a seat for one, two or three people, a table and even a means of transport!

With a bunch of casters underneath (you won’t want to lift this one) and a piped top, the ottoman is big on attitude and perfect for adding character wherever you put it. Ideal in the living room, on the verandah or even as a statement piece in your entry. Use it as a seat, a footstool or even as a coffee table.
Height: approx. 40cm
Diameter: approx. 80cm
