Christina Haire - Booth #4

Design Showcase 2012

Design: The Olivia Ottoman
Materials: Velvet, wooden frame and poly filling, wooden legs, metallic paint, casters

Pitch: "My Olivia Ottoman was imagined, designed and created for a client's living room. In a traditional setting it adds the pop and whimsey that is appealing and unexpected. Designed as an oversized square with a filling that keeps it firm and flat, it is upholstered in a cut velvet zebra print that is both traditional and not."

"To emphasize the legs, I used components of other leg types and painted them metallic silver to pick up silver accents in the room. The legs are on casters and can be moved so that it's a cocktail table with a tray for serving, a seat or, of course, a place to put your toes up and rest. I love to create unique, beautiful and functional pieces."
