This new ottoman from Afficionados of the Nod is more than it appears.
May 18th, 2009
The clever new ‘Ottoman Duo’ brings new meaning to ‘two for the price of one’.
This innovative design from Afficionados of the Nod is at first a comfortable, sturdy, adult sitting-height ottoman. However, it is actually formed from a pair – a ‘duo’ of versatile smaller floor-type cushions/ottomans – one designed as a seat and the other as a simple desk or table for children or all the family.
Designed by Afficionados of the Nod designer Malkuth Damkar, the ‘Ottoman Duo’ continues the company’s strong ethos of practical design – ensuring the maximum use of the ottoman.
The upper part of the duo – ‘Duo-alpha’ – provides padded comfort for seating, while the lower half – ‘Duo-omega’ – is unpadded offering a stable surface for resting items such as board games plates etc. and can also be used for seating.
When placed on their sides the duo can even be used as temporary side tables for small lamps.
The ‘Duo’ comes in any of Afficionados of the Nod’s 23 patterns from their in-stock fabrics.
Designed and manufactured in Australia, the Duo is the newest addition to Afficionados of the Nod ottoman range, joining the ‘Ottoman Cube’, the ‘Ottoman Long’, the ‘Ottoman Round’ and the ‘Ottoman Tall’.
