Designed as the perfect accompaniment for SCP's iconic Balzac Armchair, the Ottoman is crafted from wood and upholstered in premium Sorensen Utah Russet Leather. Echoing the popular form of its armchair sibling, the Balzac Ottoman features a beautiful silhouette, that is both enticing and yet highly stylish. One of the most popular British designs of the 1990s, the Balzac family celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2021.
