They look custom made and I would be shocked if they weren't. If you have an ottoman already, I suggest taking it along with this image to a local upholsterer and asking them to make you a slip cover similar to this. They can also tell you how many yards of fabric you will need. Good Luck!

Ottoman is from Hickory Chair, the fabric is from my Tobi Fairley Home Collection and it is called Marrakech. The scale is custom sized but if you want to order it that way, tell us you want the scale from the Ottoman in the Richmond Symphony Orchestra Showhouse.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Interview: The Design Magic of Tobi Fairley
EW: What are a few of your favorite finishing touches when designing a room? TF: I love to do unusual things to some of the often-forgotten parts of a room to add detail. Painting a stripe around the ceiling in a pop of color adds interest. A gorgeous and graphic tape trim on the skirt of a sofa or pair of swivel chairs gives them that something extra. Grosgrain piping on a lampshade takes an ordinary lamp to extraordinary. These sorts of designer details make a room truly unique. Here, Fairley added a red trim to a creamy pedestal table, a clever method of distributing the accent color from floor to ceiling.
Becky Harris added this to Bright Light, Big Lantern
Until this lantern came along, this collected room was lacking a pop of color. This Chinoiserie lantern adds Asian flair and a healthy dollop of red.
This space is an inspiring study in detail. The strong red of the lantern-style pendant and sconces repeats in the ottoman print and pedestal table trim.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Color Reaches New Heights in Light Fixtures
We're thrilled that color is back in, and Tobi Fairley is one designer who knows how to use it well. The bold red of these fixtures is such a commanding presence in the room, but is tempered by cool blues and white walls and accessories. The effect is an entrance that makes you say "wow."
Laura Fenton added this to Striped Rugs Lay It on the Line
Part of Tobi Fairley's design for the Richmond Symphony Orchestra League's designer show house, this unassuming hallway easily becomes a focal point with its boldly striped rug and red accents.
Laura Gaskill added this to Is an Online Decorator Right for You?

See the Houzz interview with Tobi Fairley
1. Save the red for a few exotic pieces. Unique lanterns in oxblood punctuate this sophisticated space. Also note the design impact of the cool slate-blue ceiling and the Greek key detailing on the rug.
Shane D. Inman added this to 8 High-Impact Places for Accent Colors
Lighting. Good lighting can make all the difference in how a room looks. Why not take it a step further and use your fixtures to emphasize an accent color? The chic red pendant and matching sconces in this room match a subtle pencil-line detail around the center table, pulling the interior design together.
