What a great place to sit and apply makeup!! That is just what my client is going to do with this ottoman. Lynn had cream colored fabric monogrammed and then she picked out the beautiful navy and cream striped fabric. It is "Sequence" by Village. I suggested to add the cute skirt with the inside of the skirt corners the navy blue to match the welt. I think it is a definite keeper. Matching the stripes for the skirt was a little challenging because the bottom of the ottoman is smaller than the top part. Lynn loves it and so do I. What about you?
