Poufs and Ottomans: Original, Functional and Versatile
Whether small or large, with square or rounded shapes, the pouf and the ottoman are pieces of furniture with ancient origins. Today they are presented as a versatile accessory, to be used in various environments and with different functions. Opera Contemporary offers a range of poufs and ottomans, available in a wide selection of materials including fabric, leather and velvet. These small-but-perfectly-formed items are much more than just a footrest. Over time, the design has transformed from a simple complement into a defining element of both classic and modern interiors – a real must-have in our homes, whatever their style.
One of Opera Contemporary’s flagship collections, the Cosmo seating set features a round pouf with light diamond quilting and a bright angular metal frame. This can be combined with the Cosmo armchair and sofa, or used as an additional item in a different style, to give a touch of originality to the space. As a stool or a footrest in the lounge or bedroom, this is an all-important complement in a design-savvy contemporary living space. Also available in a version without the quilting.
With Freddy, Castello Lagravinese has given us a sleek and modern interpretation of the classic ottoman. It meets the needs of contemporary living, where a pouf at home provides an additional seat for relaxing, or to accommodate an extra guest without requiring a chair. Freddy is a versatile and functional accessory with a solid wood frame; it adapts with ease to the living and bedroom areas, as well as a hall or study room. Also available in a version with diamond quilting.
With its elegant look, conveyed by the upholstery’s exquisite capitonné work, the Fritz pouf adds a distinctive element to a charming bedroom. Its generous surface can become a multifunctional furnishing item that can serve as a bench at the foot of the master bed, or as a small table for placing cushions, magazines and tablets.
Sophie is a space-saving beauty with multiple functions. Its appealing look enriches any refined decor scheme, with a playful use of shapes, colours and materials. Sophie can be combined with other accessories, to create continuity in the furnishing style; or it can be positioned to highlight chromatic and material contrasts in the design of sofas and armchairs. Thanks to its compact size, it can work wonders in the bedroom as a vanity corner seat. Also available in a version with diamond quilting.
Research and quality: Opera Contemporary’s attitude is to consistently select the finest materials, combined with creative craftmanship, to realise its products. The brand believes that quality design, enhanced by prestigious materials, always makes the difference to the current furnishing offer – and this ethos is especially relevant to complements, where attention to detail is paramount for achieving the ultimate signature look.
