Our Story...is a simple one.
“I was looking for a piece of furniture years ago. It had to be a specific piece, as it needed to fulfill many functions. That’s primarily where my obsession became rooted with the ottoman, it's versatility!
I was unable to find any ottomans I had pictured in my mind, so I set out to make them myself. I went to school and studied traditional techniques used by artisans in Europe, how to tie the buttons and layer the foam and cotton felt by hand.
With each new build I strive to create that original, unique piece I was never able to find, so I might present it to you.”
