Double Duty: Top Picks for Oversized Ottomans

Hello Fabulistas! Space is at a premium in New York City and I design for my clients accordingly. They’re always hosting events in their homes so it’s important to create versatile design with extra seating. Oversized ottomans are always a sure bet for flexible seating. Here are some of my top picks.

Vibrant patina

Large pieces of furniture don’t always have to be neutral! This interesting ottoman gives some visual variety with Pantone’s color of the year Radiant Orchid. Add a rectangular tray on top and you have a perfect coffee table!

Classic neutral

This ottoman’s slender chrome legs and neutral pattern makes this a classic choice. I could see this in a richly decorated library or paired in a living room with a stunning sunburst mirror. You can’t beat chrome and classic design!

Vivid stripes

Husband-and-wife design team Robert and Cortney Novogratz designed this as part of their Brasil collection for CB2. The bright colors capture the colorful Brasilian spirit and make a huge design statement. This would be fabulous in an outdoor room or a children’s play room.

Tufted elegance

Tufted designs always set a luxe tone for a room. I adore this bordeaux color. It feels so rich and the round design means that it’s the perfect perch for party conversations!
