Purple Ostrich Hide Ottoman

I made this Ottoman for a friend who wanted “something a little different” to round out a refurbishment of her living room.  She had 3 main design parameters.  Purple, oval, and a button on top.  I think we hit the mark on all counts and the beautiful supple ostrich was a huge bonus.    The feet, although hardly seen, are turned hard maple half spheres.

Materials:  Poplar, Bending Ply, Maple, Leather
Finish: Clear Lacquer (on the feet)
