I Just Had To Find Out Where This Came From!

I was at a location that will be featured in an upcoming story in the Holiday issue of House of Fifty and just fell for this tufted ottoman. I inquired where on earth it had been found, and no one could exactly recall.

Well, a little research (well, a lot actually!) upon returning home served up the answer. It's the Maison Tufted Ottoman, over scaled at a grand 58" x 42".

The beauty comes from this shop, and while not inexpensive, was less than I thought it might be at $803.

{Lisa's find in Dubai}

Which reminds me, I saw a very similar one on Lisa's blog several weeks ago. Okay, now it makes sense why I was so excited to see a version in person!  She found hers at Bloomingdales, in Dubai. Of course after seeing hers I went online to Bloomingdales on the off chance. No luck, of course. Lisa recently moved to Dubai and is busy pulling together pieces for her new home there! If you haven't visited her blog, you should.

Wish I had a spot for the ottoman in my house, but can't wait to show you the space I spotted it in. 
Look for the latest issue of House of Fifty, out November 1st.


  1. So beautiful! I just bought some fabric to make my own ottoman. I just wish I knew how to do tufting like that.

  2. What a gorgeous piece. Looking forward to the next issue of HOF.

  3. I adore the ottoman- such great scale and texture(tufting;). I love how relatively thin it is. Great price for an ottoman that size.
    oh, and Lisa's a doll!


  4. Hey Janell, I am a long time reader and fairly new blogger myself. I saw an ottoman very similar to this one that another blogger made as a DIY project for very little money. She even did the tufting and everything! I want to make something similar to this but for my piano bench! I have a picture of it on my blog, Take a look if you have time :)

  5. Ooooh!! that really is a great piece!! So looking forward to the next HOF issue in Nov.xo Kathysue

  6. Certainly looking forward to another HOF.

    The last cover was sooo phenomenal!

  9. Love this ottoman. I wonder who the manufacture is?

  10. Love that ottoman and really looking forward to your next issue!

  11. Hello Isabella
    I am a frequenter of your blog, Brazil, and would like to invite you to visit
    Your name is the name of my daughter. I love., which will give me immense satisfaction.
    Your blog is wonderful.

  12. The legs of that ottoman remind me of the finish of your newly limed table. The other thing that strikes me about the ottoman is that the seat isn't that deep (thick). Many ottomans are bulky, but even though this one is so wide across, because there's so much air under the seat, it's not as visually heavy.

  13. That is a gorgeous piece of furniture. Love the size!

  14. hey! thanks for the shout-out! you're such a sweetheart.
    I started reading your post and thought - that ottoman looks so similar to mine! What a surprise to read further and see my ottoman!
    You prompted me to look underneath mine and see if I can find a manufacturer's tag but no luck.
    Can't wait to see the next issue of HOF! xo

  15. Not a bad price at all! Thanks for sharing the source. And looking forward to seeing it in the room you shot.

  16. oooh I am in love!!! Can't wait for the next issues of HOF!

  17. Can you imagine all the lounging that could take place on this beauty? Wow. Awesome. :)

  18. Shop for it wholesale at Zentique. I used it for an ID client and got it there.

  19. Valorie is right, I just registered at the site she linked to & the ottoman (for a non-retailer such as I) is 625!


  20. Leave it to Lisa to be all the way in Dubaii and finding the hottest styles in design. It's a beauty!
