The first ottoman was brought to Europe from Turkey sometime in the late 18th century. It was much larger than the ottomans of today and generally covered in pillows. The Cherner Ottoman has come a long way since its ornamental ancestors.
This Ottoman is made from a molded plywood shell, which imparts a visual agility. Select from face veneers such as Classic Walnut, Natural Walnut, Classic Ebony and Red Gum. If you want the Ottoman upholstered, select from three different types of upholstery: Divina 100% Wool, Vincenza (available in White, Black, Carmel or Orange) and Sabrina full grain leather (comes in White, Black, Carmel or Orange). Those who want to complement their Ottoman with a chair may choose from the Cherner Lounge Chair or the Cherner Lounge Chair with Arms.
Returns: No returns are accepted on this product.
Material(s): Plywood, walnut veneer or red gum veneer with leather or wool

The Cherner Chair Company was founded in 1999 by Benjamin Cherner and his brother Thomas, in response to countless requests from fellow architects to reissue their father's designs. Utilizing Norman Cherner's original drawings and specifications, the reissued designs are manufactured with the same attention to detail found in the original hand made classics featured in design collections worldwide.
The Cherner Chair Company is committed to minimizing the environmental impact of all their products. All components of Cherner Chair products are replaceable, insuring that the chairs, tables, and stools can be handed down generation to generation, never ending up in a landfill.
All Cherner products are manufactured with attention to detail and hand assembled from woods collected from sustainably managed forests and with 100% recyclable steel with 25% recycled content. Wood and steel components are finished with coatings that emit negligible volatile organic compounds (VOCs).View other products from Cherner
