Seeing Spots

Remember waaaaay back in the fall when I posed an important design question to you, my dear readers?

This decor-related quandry concerned 2 matching parsons ottomans I picked up from a lovely Craigslist seller for $25. I was unsure if I could live with a bold print on them, specifically, Premier Prints' "Togo" fabric in Titan/Birch (as shown above).

But, with the support of you readers, I went with the dotted print and couldn't be happier.

Here are the ottomans in their original state:
I turned to my go-to upholstery guy, Joe from Narberth Upholstery. Joe had recently completed the charcoal linen upholstery on the loveseat these ottomans would be paired with.

Ready to see what great work he did?


Aren't they divine?
Up close you can see that the cording was done in the same solid charcoal linen as the couch.

I'm in love.

Next step? Find a coordinating pillow for the loveseat and use the remaining fabric for matching dotted curtains to replace the black curtains that hide our stackable washer & dryer (see pictures above).
What do you think?


  1. Ashley, I love them!! So chic!

  2. I saw your link on Little Green Notebook and just had to take a peek! So fun. I love them and now I've found a new blog too!

  3. So glad you found me! Glad you like the ottomans--I'm suddenly all about prints!

  4. So glad I found this via LGN. I found this Premier prints pattern online and wondered how well it would translate when used on furniture. I love it!!! and plan to use it somewhere! Happy New Year!

  5. Hi Kim--glad you found my project! I really love the print and am so glad I went with the Titan/Birch colorway--I love it. Hope you share your project when you finish--I'll be sure to check it out!

  6. Found this Via LGN and I have to say they look awesome!!! I used the same fabric for some chairs I made into ottomans as well. Can't believe the price is so cheap.


  7. Thank you, thank you, Bri! Your ottomans look great, too! I love your bold sense of style--very, very cool.

  8. Ashely, just found your blog via 6th street design. This is an adorable remake. A great use of that fabric... I live in Philadelphia as well, so I especially look forward to your local posts!!

  9. Hi Lauren,

    How great, thank you for stopping by...I love hearing from fellow Philadelphians!

  10. I am debating doing a great big ottoman in this fabric so I loved seeing it come to life on your stools. Thanks for sharing!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
