Outta No Where Ottoman
"Oh yeah!!" Thats what I said to myself rather loudly in the coffee line the other day. It was quite embarrassing but well worth it as I was exclaiming over a photo I had taken a month or so ago and had just rediscovered.
While exploring the island shops with my parents, we stumbled across this truly original and enchanting ottoman. It has a traditional shape and scale but instead of a woven fabric, it is upholstered in thick, nubby irresistible carpeting. I had never seen such a thing before and as it was so creative and endearing I took a picture to remind me to research the company later:
Flash forward to now. The group that makes these cuties is Company C. Looks like they sell rugs, upholstered furniture and textiles. Definitely cute stuff, especially the rugs, but this ottoman is by far the most charming thing.
Doesn't this bead spread look like the pattern Sarah Richardson has in her cottage?
And don't forget these whimsical rugs, you know how I love a statement rug.
I'm so glad I stumbled upon that photo. Not only did it bring back happy memories from my parent's visit, it also got my design gears turning. I predict that a DIY version of just such a thing is right around the corner in the design world. What do you think, is the carpet ottoman a keeper or not so cute?
