An ottoman, by definition, is typically a short and padded piece of furniture that is often used as a footstool, though they do have other uses. Ottomans often look like little furniture cubes, but can come in other shapes and styles. Not all ottomans are square; round and octagonal are other popular shapes for ottomans. Also, while most ottomans appear solid, with hidden storage under the seat, there are a number of open bottom designed options.

Soft pinks and purples, like dusty rose and blush pink, pair beautifully with gray. The muted hues add a touch of femininity without overpowering the design. Metallics often complete this color palette, adding a chic touch of glamour to the overall look.

Pelicanus Iris looks more benign than some of Hefer’s toothier models, and the ample lower beak of the bird forms a cocoon fit for lounging. Perhaps the old fable about storks and babies fuels human desire to want to curl up inside this seat. His creations initially have the light air of something perhaps designed for a child, but end up bringing out the child still hiding inside adults — the child who wants to be swinging in that seat.

Our walls, which are Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray, are my favorite – light gray with some warm tones – and our kitchen cabinets are a darker warm gray. The gray blue of the sectional really is beautiful (and actually complements our marble in the kitchen really well).

Yours truly is remembering a hallway-like common area that she and two roommates shared in New York City, in which an armchair was so crushed up next to a couch that they overlapped at the arms, the corner between them occupied by a side table that could fit a lamp and nothing else (and that was so crammed into the space you couldn't even see the legs of it, let alone clean it). But a sectional—the right size sectional—could have added one more seat to that corner, relaxing the cramped nature of the room we'd so poorly devised.
