Good Questions: Recreate this Ottoman?

Good Questions: Recreate this Ottoman?

As is often the case, I'm in love with this ottoman from Buck House, but not in love with its $3200 price tag. Does anyone have any ideas where I can find something similar? Or, how I could go about making one of my own that would still be as sturdy as an ottoman (and not as wobbly as a stack of pillows!)? — Lia

This question makes us long for the now defunct Blueprint Magazine. Luckily, their blog, Bluelines, is still up. They did a DIY pillow ottoman that might suit your purpose. We think you could recreate the look of the Buck House ottoman using more luxurious pillows, but following the general Bluelines instructions. Any other suggestions for Lia?
