About Cowhide Ottomans
Gorgeous Creatures can make you your perfect cowhide ottoman. Ottomans are our specialty.
Contact us today to discuss your cowhide ottoman options. If you can imagine it we can probably make it.
This will be one of the most useful furniture pieces you will ever own.
Most living rooms can only fit a limited amount of furniture. So each furniture piece should be stylish, comfortable and versatile to justify the space that it occupies.
Cowhide ottomans are our passion and we can also make ottomans covered in other things like velvet, leather, linen or just about anything you can imagine.
A soft ottoman or footstool is a wonderful alternative to a coffee table or flexible extra seating solution.
Ottomans are often smaller than other seats and light enough to be easily re-positioned as needed. They tuck into a difficult corner or nook easily.
Use a storage ottoman or toy box to tidy up your living space or bedroom.
We sometimes have a small selection of cowhide ottomans for sale at our Napier, New Zealand showroom.
REVIEW "I found an amazing cowhide ottoman in one of Sydney's chicest designer furniture stores, the price tag, however, was horrifying.
I searched online for an alternative and came across Gorgeous Creatures. While it was a quite a significant investment to be made across the seas, the team at GC were incredibly helpful and open. It gave me the confidence to place the order, pay the money and cross my fingers.
I could not be happier. The resulting ottoman is far better than the one I saw at the original retailer at about 1/3 of the price.
I've only had it a week (very fast, well communicated delivery) but everyone that walks into my home is bowled over by how chic it looks. It is a beautiful piece that I'm sure will give us many, many years of pleasure. Thanks GC." Dale - Sydney - Australia.
Fun & Stylish Furniture & Footstools
Ottomans are a low risk way to inject pattern, colour and texture into the room without the worry of “going too far”.
Be brave and have fun with the fabric covering. Don't hold back, you can't really get it wrong.
The ottoman covering can easily be changed in a few years when fashion or your home décor style changes. Or if you move to a new house with different colours.
Quality Furniture Will Stand The Test Of Time
The best thing to do is to invest in good quality furniture to start with; quality will last for many years longer than cheap mass produced furniture.
A strong well made frame, good quality foam with a ten year warranty, and strong high quality legs are very important.
An ottoman needs to stand up to the weight of adults sitting on it, and children playing on it.
The soft rounded corners and edges of an upholstered coffee table ottoman means that children or the elderly won't hurt themselves when falling over.
What's trending now in ottomans?
We have made a lot of round or oval shaped cowhide ottomans recently so this must be a new trend.
This round or oval furniture shape works well in a smaller room or a room with an awkward shape. It is also really modern.
And if you room has multiple entrances/exits a round or oval furniture setting with a few armchairs either side can work really well to solve furniture layout problems.
When used as a central coffee table, an ottoman or stool excels in adaptability, and can become a wonderful room feature.
Firm enough to rest a cup of tea or dinner plate, coffee table books, board games or a tray.
An ottoman is a welcoming center piece that doesn’t create a hard barrier between you and your family or guests. And it doesn't block the view.
After dinner everyone can put their feet up and relax.
Ottomans and foot stools are also low profile and will not obscure a view out a garden, to a TV or fireplace or make a room feel blocked in and cluttered.
What does an ottoman do?
Ottomans are such a wonderful piece of furniture, you can move them around, make them a main feature, tuck them away out of sight and put your feet up.
Any home or apartment can use an ottoman somewhere.
We make our ottomans firm with a flat top so that they easily replace a coffee table, or they can be slightly domed with a gentle curved top if your furniture is a more rounded traditional style.
Longer bench ottomans can be used beside a dining table as an alternative to dining chairs, at the end of a bed or under a window as a window seat.
Ottomans are great when you have limited space.
All our ottomans are made after consultation with you, so that you get exactly what you want.
We can talk on the phone or by email. You will get to see photos of cowhide and furniture leg options. Other options are also available.
Every ottoman is unique, and you can customize many of the design features including size, shape, leg type & height, studs & feature stitching.
Ottomans with Decorative Studs
Decorative furniture studs are an easy and very effective way to add detail, interest and to jazz up an ottoman or chair.
Strip studs or continuous studs (studs joined close together) are smaller and easier to apply, they are also cheaper than individually applied decorative studs.
But we use the individual studs more, especially the larger 19mm stud size which works really well with the proportions of a large furniture item.
We stock some great decorative stud colours that other furniture designers don't have. Contact us for more information.
