Art Series Ottomans

Add an ottoman and change the room.

Ottomans are the perfect statement piece to add personality and character to a room. They are adaptable and versatile and can be used as footstools, extra seating, bedside tables and coffee tables. 

For about three years we have been teaching people how to upholster ottomans (with fabrics of their choice) in our workshops. The ottomans, along with our lampshade workshops, have been hugely popular.

As a natural development of this, we have now launched a range of bespoke handmade and limited-edition ottomans for sale. Working directly with some of the most inspiring and talented Australian textile artists and designers (both established and emerging), we’re proud to announce the first Ministry of Handmade Art Series.

Never before have we collaborated in such a way, so we’re truly excited to launch our selection of ottomans. In a variety of contemporary styles and sizes, they range from sleek and refined to eclectic and boho.  To accompany our bespoke ottomans, we can create to order a complementary range of lampshades and cushions. Talk to us about creating a special ottoman just for you.

The Art Series Launch Event

On the weekend of 28 and 29 October we held a launch event to celebrate the collaboration between Ministry of Handmade and some fabulous textile designers to create our Art Series of Ottomans.

15 Ottomans were show cased at the event and we were lucky enough to have some of the wonderful designers arrive to answer questions and engage with our creative community.

It was a wonderful event and we sincerely thank all those who attended, especially the artists/designers and the helpers. 

Here’s a few of the photos:
