Worth the Wait! Family Room Complete
It was more elusive than Sasquatch and harder to find than the Loch Ness Monster.
But my search is finally over and the reward is a finished family room.
I’ve been searching high and low for a leather ottoman for this space but could not find anything I loved. That is until I stumbled across this Article ottoman so of course I had to partner with them once again (because I love both of my Article sofas – see my blue velvet sofa HERE and my gray sofa HERE).
It checks off every box.
Right size, right height, right material, right looks!
I love that it’s real leather not that cheap bonded stuff and the stitching adds such interest. It comes in five colors (I love the blue and gray) but I ended up choosing charme tan and am thrilled with it.
Now let’s change the subject for a minute and pat me on the back for continuing to keep my fiddle leaf fig alive … ok now back to the ottoman.
I thought about getting a coffee table for a hot second but realized that my family must have an ottoman because it’s perfect for feet propping and binge watching The Hallmark Channel (Holiday in Handcuffs anyone?) and it’s big enough to add a tray for drinks or remotes.
It’s sturdy but lightweight (35 lbs) and it’s easy to move around.
I’m on a roll. Now if I could just find the perfect pair of jeans that make me look 10 lbs lighter.
P.S. Here are some before shots with oversized furniture, outdated that just didn’t work in the space – don’t judge!
Kelly, It looks great – love the giant ottoman.
Isn’t it gorgeous Pat – hope you’re having a great November!
It’s a beauty and looks fantastic/perfect in the room!!!
Thanks Shirley – I may never move from this room!
That ottoman!!!! Makes it all come together. I love that NYC pillow, too. Enjoy Holiday in Handcuffs in your comfy and chic styled room. XO
Thanks Diane – hope you’re enjoying getting ready for Santa at the lake!
Beautiful- I especially love The rug! If you find the perfect jeans please let me know!
LOL – I’m on a quest!
Your room is perfect comfy and cozy, you may just fall asleep.
What? Oh, sorry, you woke me!
Where did you find it? I’m looking for one just like it.
Looks wunderbar! But I really should not read blogs without my glasses…. the first photo I thought was a little hairy gray paw attached to a white dog, then I remembered you don’t have a white dog and Sushi’s paw wouldn’t be hairy.
Sushi is offended you thought she had a hairy paw! She’s due for a wax!
Where did you get the gorgeous rug???
I’ve had my eyes on this ottoman for quite some time. I’d like to place it between two sofas as I don’t have the right living room configuration for a sectional. Are you still in love with it? How has it held up?
I LOVE IT! It looks gorgeous! If you get it, I would love to see a pic of your space!
