Ottoman Empire

I have been on the search for an ottoman to redo for a few months now and I finally found the perfect one!  I  have been coveting the X-Bench at Ballard Designs forever for its affordablility.  They are also offered by William Sonoma Home and Jonathan Adler for a bit more money.  I love the interactive fabric selections offered on these sites.

The bench looks great in a classic solid
X-Based Stool, Cotton Herringbone, Charcoal
or a fun print
.  X-Based Stool, Zebra Herringbone, Graphite
The X-Bench has been a classic staple in front of the fireplace or at the foot of a bed:

I think they are best in pairs, but I only found this lonely soul:

I am hoping I will have some Raspberry East Village left over from my chair, but I won't find out until tonight's or next week's class.  I think it would be the perfect little pop of color in a room.

Do any of you have an X-Bench in your house?


  1. Ooooh... I do not have an X-Bench in my house but maybe I should!

  2. Nor do I! Sadia, maybe we should treat each other to one?

  3. I have an X-bench in my house and it looks strikingly similar to the one in your picture - at least for now.

  4. No x-bench here (yet) but have been on the lookout for a while will happen, it just has to!
