Need Recommendation For An Ottoman

Kyle CowherdJanuary 17, 2013
I am looking to replace my current coffee table with a large square or rectangle ottoman. I was thinking one with color and a pattern would look nice, but I cant decide what would look best. I have attached a picture of my living room and a swatch of the fabric of my sectional. The rug is cream/beige colored and the design is gray but actually looks brown. I love orange so if I could do some kind of pattern with orange then that would be awesome. Thanks in advance.

I think a larger rug would be great and one that could have more color, and the ottoman can maybe pick up a color from it...a brown leather one is practical and may be easier to come by...

Thanks for the suggestion. I like the rug, but I am trying to avoid using red. I found a nice wall clock that is a distressed teal and looks old and a little rusted. I am also going to be making some decorative pillows and was going to find fabric that has teal, orange and maybe some other colors. What do you think?

Yes, that sounds lovely! I still think you need a larger rug.

Beautiful! I think I like the first one and fourth best! Big enough to have the sofa on it, I am guessing 7*11 or something like that, the biggest they have!

keep in mind the size of your rug.....an ottoman will be a nice addition but you will lose the benefit of the visual pattern of the rug

great start but I would suggestion finding a different spot for the rug, using a larger rug with the new ottoman, either punch up the room with a wild rug or keep the rug two toned or shaggy and add the 'artful' play of lots of color with the fabric on the ottoman....I like the idea of a patterned crazy fun rug

You can shop by color at homedecorators.com. Get a friend who can detect the color to help you look. Is the end of your sectional already useable as an ottoman? You could just have it upholstered.

Thanks Gary. The rug I currently have is 5x8. What do you think about this rug in 8x11? http://image1.rugs-direct.com/rug_gallery/00069/10686/103192/162639/rd880a-5.jpg

the coffee table, as it is built leaves little area for a rug to be see unless it is large, so thus another reason for the larger rug. the coffee table is fine for either location

Hey Kyle - you might want to check this out - I took out your rug (and kettle ball) - added an ottoman and round rug. Plus added some wall art too. I did this in Crate&Barrel's online 3D Room Designer.

This rug requires a glass-metal coffee table! Also white is too much problem to clean, take it from a lady :) What if you hang it on the wall as an artcraft plus get some shaggy rug and a leather ottoman? Does this sound crazy to you?

I do have! try to find a taupish grayish off white.... if you dont find what you like go to a carpet store or look up a carpet installer, call them to ask if they have any shaggy/long pile carpeting. they could....could have a piece left over from another job or have yardage in stock. once the desired carpet is found if can be cut to size and bound wtih a cottom tape to finish the edge....

Kyle if you have your heart set on the wildly patterned rug, your art should be more subdued...black and white photography for example. If on the other hand, you love the art, the rug should be a solid or a pattern that reads as a solid. The two together fight each other and compete for attention. A wise investment might be a more versatile rug...a simple, solid texture that coordinates with your sofa. Then you can really get creative with art and accessories.

Ok, then I will take Gary's advice and find a shag rug that is wool white with natural darker streaks. Sorry for changing my mind so much, this is my first experience with real decorating.

How about a plain sisal style rug, with the color to compliment that great fabric in your sofa. You could do real sisal or the wool and jute blend from Pottery Barn. A round metal coffee table like this one (easily found on line) and put a less pinkie color on the walls. Then, as michi suggests use your colors on the wall/throw pillows. Less of a commitment.

Here's a great example: the tone on tone gray rug has a subtle pattern that reads as one solid color while the art and throw pillows add color, drama and contrast.

don't rush it.....go to some galleries and find somethings you like.....art is personal and as for myself I have all the art I've ever purchased. Set out and think of 'collecting' grab a date and go to an art show. if there is an 'artsy' area in your town look up a few and ask when they are having their next show.....(usually free food and drinks lol) Invest a little time. You seem to have good taste, you only need it cultivated a bit

I reckon your current rug is too pale on your timber floor so you should go for a darker rug eg a sisal one like something from crucial trading. Then just make your sofa look fabulous with some striking cushions in your preferred orange which will compliment your sofa and floor well. As your sofa appears to be a lovely traditional fabric perhaps you could consider using a bit of texture for your cushions eg velvet.

fyi as you sectional is leather, fabrics that are smooth often have a difficult time standing up, they slide down to the seat cushion....if you have a 'cotton' 'flat woven' fabric, you might want to use a cording between the front and back panels to give a bit of traction

Ok Gary...I have come to the point where I am going to replace my rug. Its like a second job and the shedding seems to get worse. Plus it is a pain to keep clean and keep it from getting matted.

I found a few indoor/outdoor rugs that I like that are pretty cheap. What do you think about these?

I won't leave you now man.......those are great rugs. They seem to be have a hard finish, meaning that the weave may be abrasive for rolling around on the floor, and could be a bit slick under foot. Howver they should NOT shed

I like this one. The flower one is nice, but I just dont know how that would look. I am still new at this decorating thing.

I like that one too and I agree in that not sure if it will clash with your pic. Maybe a designer can help with that. Gary what do you think..

Or something like this that is plain and simple but adds some texture?

Haven't been able to look at rugs lately between work and getting a new car, but I am really warming up to the idea of a tannish/brownish color of rug. What do you think about this:

I find this flower one also stunning: http://www.ecarpetgallery.com/products/Hand-made-Flower-Delight-Modern-Rectangular-Rug-5-0-x-8-0--48237.html

Furthermore I used this coupon that i got through a newsletter to buy my rug with a 85% discount on brown rugs:

Hope that helps!
