Why we love this product

Seen here in pink upholstery

This gorgeous ottoman is a functional yet beautiful piece. From its design, it is clear to see the maker, David Watson's, love for geometry. David also cites the inspiration for the Govan Collection is the Finnieston Crane, the largest remaining cantilever structure built to load locomotives on to ships for export around the world. The collection echoes the pared back utilitarian forms of the areas once celebrated industrial might. Designed and handcrafted in the David Watson workshop on the banks the Clyde, this ottoman is available in a variety of upholstery options and timber options. This ottoman also pairs beautifully with the Govan Sofa.
