Help for boring cocktail ottoman
Laurence Tillett
June 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
just starting a total condo renovation. need help with ideas on what to cover the cocktail ottoman cushion with. it's a totally boring cream colored fakey leather material. 36" round on dark wooden legs. it will sit on an oriental rug, with warm brown leather sofa and two West Elm faux suede chairs in "saddle" color. here's a photo of the fabrics on the rug. (the large blue-gray swatch is not a chair fabric, but the color of the blue accents in the rug. I was thinking something maybe in an Ikat print? something to make both the colors in the rug pop and make a statement since all the furniture is plain...no prints. any fun/unusual suggestions greatly appreciated.

Love the colors in your rug! A leopard print would be stunning.

Could we see a picture that shows the carpet with your furniture on it?

I guess I'm boring but I really love the top fabric swatch.

The samples look good together, agreed with seeing the overall look in order to make an informed decision.

Thanks all! I like the idea of the leopard print as a possible Ikat alternative. I can't show the furniture on the rug....the furniture is still being manufactured, but will post a photo when all in and completed. I like the top fabric swatch too...but that is the dining chairs...West Elm swoop arm chair in honey leather (altho "honey" is really "honey-pumpkin) :-). the spaces are contiguous so need to coordinate carefully. and lastly, the red in the rug is really more of a rust color...more orange than red. Again, thanks for all the ideas and sample fabrics!

I would not put an ikat on top of that rug. Too busy. Without seeing the actual furniture on the rug, my instinct is to cover the ottoman in a plain rusty/red (from the rug), perhaps with some texture, and deeply saturated to make it pop. IN any case, I would wait to cover it until the furniture arrived.

Well, even if you don't use any for the ottoman, there's some great throw pillow and drape fabrics in all of the above :)
