Sam and Phil have expensive taste.  Their dream ottoman in solid oak and wool would set them back £875. So, they decided to make their own, using equally top quality materials.

I  like ottomans.

  • Reason #1: because I like getting my feet up.
  • Reason #2: because they are often cute and add a lovely design element to a room.
  • Reason #3: because they often offer storage. (Yes, I like indoor benches for this reason too!)
