Reupholstered Ottoman

One of my favorite clients I have been working with via eDesign just sent me a shot of her "New" Ottomans.  I say "New" because they originally looked like this...

Functional? Yes.
Stylish? Eh.

While others may have discarded them, we knew better.  
(Luckily my client had some vision for these guys as well!)

In my crazy head, I saw this...

Tufted Ottoman

Dressed in this...


& oh how lovely they are now!!!!!

Functional? Yes.

Stripes are tough with tufting (but it can be done!).  Just make sure your Upholsterer is confident about working with stripes.  My client's first upholsterer wasn't... But she found another one who was & I want to personally give them a big hug.  Just what I had envisioned.

We decided to pair the two ottomans together with a tray on top as the coffee table after seeing this inspiration shot.  

Double Ottomans

Love the two paired together & something that is not your typical setting.  But a perfect solution for my client's needs.

Makes you rethink a few items in your own house doesn't it?!?

  1. Oh wow!
    Love stripes, love tufting, love navy blue!
    If you ask me, it`s perfect! ;)

  2. Great vision! Tufting and nailhead trim - two of my favourite details!

  3. That is one heck of a transformation. I love an upholstered re-do!

  4. You did an amazing job on that transformation! Your client must be so pleased with the results, it is really beautiful.

  5. I've been on the hunt for 2 good stools like that for a while now...for the same spot as your inspiration pic! I think they are fabulous in front of the fireplace. Great extra seating and easy to move if needed. I have my two fur stools that I leave there periodically, but would really like to find a pair with a more rectangular shape. GREAT vision for your client, I love the oversize nail head trim also.

  6. Wow! I love the transformation and the large nailheads are fabulous.
