The Kingston Ottoman 

The Kingston is a versatile ottoman that can serve as an ottoman, a coffee table, or a shelf, making it an efficient use of space. The Kingston comes with a wood table insert so it can function as a tabletop for items. It also comes standard with a wooden shelf for books or décor with the option to remove it.

The square shape and angled legs make for a distinguished profile, while the cushioned top creates a comfortable, soft look and feel. The Kingston is available in a variety of sizes and lends a sophisticated feel to a space.


The Havana Bench 

The Havana upholstered bench is another versatile piece that can serve as seating in many rooms of the house. This minimalist design can be added to any room easily for some extra pizazz and seating. The Havana is available in a variety of widths and a plethora of covering choices.  

The modern, clean lines of the Havana mesh well with the rounded edges to create a soft, cozy feel.

The Cambridge Ottoman & The Carlisle Ottoman

The Cambridge features a hand-tufted top and the Carlisle comes with a smooth, flat top.
