REVIEW "I found an amazing cowhide ottoman in one of Sydney's chicest designer furniture stores, the price tag, however, was horrifying.
I searched online for an alternative and came across Gorgeous Creatures. While it was a quite a significant investment to be made across the seas, the team at GC were incredibly helpful and open. It gave me the confidence to place the order, pay the money and cross my fingers.
I could not be happier. The resulting ottoman is far better than the one I saw at the original retailer at about 1/3 of the price.
I've only had it a week (very fast, well communicated delivery) but everyone that walks into my home is bowled over by how chic it looks. It is a beautiful piece that I'm sure will give us many, many years of pleasure. Thanks GC." Dale - Sydney - Australia.

Cowhide Ottomans at Home by Gorgeous Creatures
What does an ottoman do?

Ottomans are such a wonderful piece of furniture, you can move them around, make them a main feature, or tuck them away out of sight.

Any home or apartment can use an ottoman somewhere. We make our ottomans firm with a flat top so that they easily replace a coffee table, or they can be slightly domed with a gently curved top if your furniture is a more rounded traditional style.

Longer bench ottomans can be used beside a dining table as an alternative to dining chairs, at the end of a bed, or under a window as a window seat. A bench ottoman is also great in an entranceway. Ottomans are great when you have limited space.

When used as a central coffee table, an ottoman or stool excels in adaptability and can become a wonderful room feature. Firm enough to rest a cup of tea or dinner plate, coffee table books, board games, or a tray.

An ottoman is a welcoming centerpiece that doesn’t create a hard barrier between you and your family or guests. And it doesn't block the view. After dinner, everyone can put their feet up and relax. Ottomans and footstools are also low profile and will not obscure a view out to a garden, to a TV or fireplace, or make a room feel blocked in and cluttered.

Comfort: Ottomans often provide a comfortable place to rest your feet or even sit. They are typically padded or cushioned, offering a soft and supportive surface for relaxation.

Space-Saving: Ottomans are usually smaller and more lightweight than traditional sofas or chairs, which means they can be easily moved and placed in different areas of a room. They are particularly useful for smaller living spaces where optimizing space is essential.

Coffee Table Alternative: Many ottomans are equipped with a flat surface on top, making them excellent alternatives to coffee tables. You can use them to place drinks, snacks, or even decorative items, offering both function and style.

Additional Seating: Ottomans can provide extra seating when needed, which is particularly valuable when hosting guests. They can be easily positioned in the room to accommodate more people.

Storage Solutions: Some ottomans are designed with hidden storage compartments, providing a convenient way to keep items like blankets, pillows, or magazines out of sight but within easy reach.

Footrest: The primary purpose of an ottoman is to serve as a comfortable footrest, making it an ideal companion to chairs and sofas. Elevating your feet can promote relaxation and reduce fatigue.

 What's trending now in Cowhide Ottomans?

Oval or round cowhide ottomans by Gorgeous Creatures

A new ottoman shape is emerging. The circular and oval form of these ottomans is especially advantageous in smaller rooms or spaces with irregular layouts. Their design inherently lends a sense of fluidity and continuity to the environment, helping to create a more open and inviting atmosphere.

This is especially beneficial in rooms where space may be limited, as the absence of sharp corners or edges allows for efficient and unobtrusive placement. It's a design strategy that maximizes functionality without compromising on style.

Moreover, the adoption of round or oval furniture shapes represents a forward-looking approach to interior design, reflecting a modern and contemporary aesthetic.

The smooth, curvilinear lines of these pieces harmonize with various decor styles, effortlessly integrating into both traditional and cutting-edge interiors. Their versatility allows them to complement a sectional sofa seamlessly, serving as an elegant and complementary addition to the overall seating arrangement.

In homes with multiple entrances and exits, the utilization of a round or oval furniture configuration can be a strategic solution to furniture layout challenges.

Placing a central round ottoman as the focal point and flanking it with armchairs on either side offers an effective means of harmonizing the room's flow. This arrangement not only enhances the visual appeal of the space but also optimizes the use of available square footage.

In essence, the rise of round and oval ottomans is a testament to the dynamic nature of interior design, where form and function converge to create stylish, adaptable, and space-efficient solutions. This design trend not only embraces the modern aesthetic but also addresses practical challenges in interior layouts, ensuring that your living spaces are as visually appealing as they are functional.

Ottomans with decorative studs

Decorative furniture studs, also called decorative nails or nailhead trim, are an easy and very effective way to add detail, and interest and to jazz up an ottoman.
