Furniture question

We have been on the hunt for an ottoman for years. We are looking for a square brown leather one for our family room (in place of a coffee table). Pottery barn has one that I love but it is over $800 and homie don't play that.

Any ideas of places to look?

Edit - here is a pic of the PB one

Re: Furniture question

  • Home Outfitters had one for a while you can try there.  Also the  real canadian super store carried one forever.

  • Almost any store has them now... The Brick, Leons, Bad Boy, Crate and Barrel
  • Been to all those places. None have a square one, they are all rectangular.
  • not too toot my own horn=P  I found one for downtowncalgary on kijjii (how the eff you spell it) a couple of years ago.  Try checking those sites out, too=)

    LOLOL!  Love it.  Did your mama teach you better than that;)  I was telling my G'ma how much I paid for something and she was like, "ummm..didn't I teach you better than that!" 

  • Do you have a Dufresne's close by? I looked at their website and they have several square ones although they are more storage type square ottomans.

  • oooo good idea!!!

    I just can't justify the cost on something that will be covered in baby drool and have Joey's stinky feet on it :)

  • have u been to any local (ie., 1 store only) stores? We bought our living room leather couches + chair + ottoman at New Welco furniture which is near Dundas & Dixie in Mississauga (which I realize is a trek for you)... however they order from a Canadian manufacturer and they are really cheap so the mfg must be cheap. They have stood up well, so far it's been 2 years and they are in mint condition. I don't know the manufacturer but I'm sure a lot of the smaller places order from the same company. Our brown leather square ottoman is not as big or the same style as the one your are looking for, but I'm nearly willing to bet they would have one you can order.
  • Try the Old Hide House in Acton.  Here's a link:

    Friends of ours got a great deal on a leather couch, 2 chairs, and an ottoman.  The stuff that they got is not on their website, but it gives you an idea of what is there.  BTW - they got all of that furniture for about $2500, so I would think it's pretty reasonably priced.

    It still does. I saw it two days ago.

    ETA: Oops, sorry it was a rectangular one. That's what I get for not reading through the whole thread.

  • Almost square.  This place is awesome they can probably custom make one for you for cheaper than the pottery barn one.

    I second the Chesterfield shop.  They're awesome and do all kinds of semi customized furniture at really reasonable prices. 

  • I too, was going to recommend EQ3.

    What about HomeSense?

  • Thanks for all the recommendations ladies. All the major stores only have rectangular ones, the one's like a bench or the small square one's. It has been crazy trying to find a larger square one.

    I will check out the links and see if I can find anything.

    Thanks again.
