The X-Base Factor.

I’m on an endless search for X-based ottomans or stools. I love them. These small furnishings are among the oldest designs in formal seating and still a true classic and timeless accent to be used as a pull-up seat or foot rest today. Use them alone in an entry way or in pairs at the foot of the bed or in front of a fireplace. These select choices are a few I swear by… cross my heart.
