Ottoman Empire
Nearly four feet in diameter, you’ll need a large space to house the Menil Cocktail Ottoman. And that’s a good thing, because it’s stylish and comfortable, which will surely draw a crowd. Part of Charlotte-based interior designer Barrie Benson’s signature line for Highland House, the six-sided piece is just one example of her energetic, fresh aesthetic. Shown with a tray in blonde cerused wood, the hand-upholstered ottoman is available in a range of fabric and finish options. Available through Highland House / Starting at $2,085 / www.highlandhousefurniture.com

Against the Grain Made of solid ash, the Reese end table is as easy on the eyes as it is easy to care for — no maintenance (or coasters) required. Just wipe with a dry or damp cloth, or hand wash with mild soap and water. If the sixteeninch-by-sixteen-inch size isn’t what you need, order a custom size for the perfect fit.
