Unexpected Ottoman

I built the frame for this ottoman several years ago not knowing what it would become.  As I began to explore furniture as art, I discovered a side of myself I didn’t know existed.  This one-of-a-kind piece is 48”x 25”x 16”.

I titled this Unexcepted for various reasons.  I never expected that doing upholstery work would ever lead to expressing myself in such an artistic way.  In the piece itself there were unexpected turns in how it developed & the colors used.  The top was pieced together with cotton upholstery fabrics.  The green stripes were originally gold & the gold was totally eliminated until the end when I decided to add one small piece.
