Building a Room Around the Ottoman: Comfy Glamour

Building a Room Around the Ottoman: Comfy Glamour

I am obsessed with this oversized tufted ottoman. If it were mine, I'd never want to sit on anything else. Since I would refuse to share my velvet perch, here's a modern boudoir with more seating inspired by the glamour and comfort of the tufted ottoman.

The curve and the aubergine velvet of the chaise enhance the glamour, while the clean lines of the tailored gray sofa help anchor the room and keep it from being too Moulin Rouge. The mirrored divider and metal accents reflect light and balance the visual weight of the ottoman.

The round velvet pillows are such a bargain, I even used multiples in my dream room. Along with the white shag rug, they soften the space. The peacock & parrot pillows, as well as the oversized carousel print, are whimsical and add color to the room.
