Oturma Rectangular Ottoman
Oturma is seating in Turkish and the inspiration for this Ottoman. The Turkish oturma refers to the sheer expansiveness of this ottoman, but also to the influences of this Ottoman, specifically its namesake - the Ottoman empire and its scope and influence even in today’s world.
As you travel the streets from Paris to Lille, and beyond, you find traces of the heritage of the people who descend from the Ottoman Empire, every bit as French as the next citizen, but also uniquely steeped in their familial heritage. This is true, too, of this ottoman - it is decidedly French from the tufted top surface that uses a gorgeous broadcloth style linen, and strategic grid-patterned tufting.
But it is also full of historic Ottoman design ideals. It is low, and flat, and comfortable, and sturdy - built for daily heavy use as a practicality. It is simple, and mildly embellished and it is powerful in stature, with a broad appeal.
