A favorite addition to my interior designs are small seats or ottomans as some prefer to call them. They are powerhorses. As shown in this photo from TaylorKing the colorful teal leather cubes move easily for seats, your feet and for trays with appetizers and drinks.
In a previous post, I highlighted some favorites. But after a project at Chi Omega sorority at the U of WA this summer, I’m back on the bandwagon of small seats. You see, I was challenged to add flexible, movable furniture to boost the options for studying together in the large gathering room. And that’s what happened when I added nine smalls seats and 2 larger ottomans.
More ideas for small seats~
I like the appearance of this leather cube as the stitching and seams make it distinctive. Plus it comes in many colors.
You can make a statement with small seats too. Take this example from Hickory Chair using a hide. The attention to detail is outstanding. Quality workmanship is a mainstay of Hickory Chair upholstery.
Yes, this is quite clever and also useful as back muscles grow weary without some support. This small seat provides a boost of style to a furniture arrangement while adding to comfort. It could tuck under a console too to make space in your seating arrangement.
I will be searching for more small seats as I head to the furniture mecca of High Point later this week. All the companies I note in the post and many more are sources for the work horse small seats I love to use. What I especially like about seeing the resources in person is the opportunity to test them for comfort.
