About the Designer
Blu Dot furniture (born in 1997) was founded by John Christakos, Charles Lazor, and Maurice Blanks. The firm began as a loose collaboration of three college friends trained in architecture and art, based on the premise that design should be affordable. The partners chose furniture as the subject of interest and opened a studio and operations in Minneapolis in 1996. Blu Dot has begun to realize their vision with a collection of over 40 furniture pieces that are both elegantly abstract and unambiguously functional. Blu Dot pieces are in the permanent collections of several museums, have been seen on the sets of well-known television shows such as Friends and ER, and have won numerous national and international awards. The furniture collection is distributed around the world.

love this ottoman as a coffee table
J from Seattle, WA – Verified Buyer
We needed to get a soft coffee table option as we have a little one learning to walk and our marble coffee table would not be forgiving if she fell on it. This piece is stylish, elegant and kid friendly! We love the update to our living room.

Ottoman bounces very quickly back to shape. Great material for wiping clean.
Giovanni from New York – Verified Buyer
This is a good ottoman. It is the size I expected and it is exactly what I was looking for.
Gerald from Michigan – Verified Buyer
I am really happy with this ottoman. It is just what I was looking for and the size is great. The color is what you see on the web site and the quality is good too.
Good simple ottoman.
Todd from seattle, WA – Verified Buyer
Great large scale piece. Good for informal sitting as well as coffee table function but not as rigid as we would have preferred. Still a good value for the size.
