Intrigued? Watch the video, learn more about furnish.ed and the Atomic Ottoman Kit in the details below, and consider backing our project – It's a box full of fun, and your support is vital to our success. Don't forget to tell your friends!
We’ve placed 10 years of furniture making and teaching experience in a box, along with quality supplies to make your own piece of furniture.
It can be done in a day, or in smaller steps and stolen moments. All you need to do is assemble your tools and clear the table.
You can make it by yourself, or with a whole host of friends.
The Atomic Ottoman Kit is designed to be made with simple hand tools you've probably got at home - flat & phillips screwdrivers, pliers, hammer, fabric scissors. A medium duty staple gun from your local multinational hardware chain, a little time with a sewing machine.
The base kit excludes final fabric. We wouldn’t dream of telling you what to wear, so we won’t tell you what to put on your furniture - but we promise the printed instructions will help you plan your own creative solution.
We know upholstery is rewarding and addictive and we know you’ll find new projects you want to conquer. So we’ve made sure the Atomic Ottoman Kit provides you with more than just a day of fun and a stylish piece of furniture.
Developed over 2 years of live workshops, testing and refinement, the Atomic Ottoman is more than just an upholstered seat. It’s a project specifically designed to teach you essential, professional upholstery techniques you’ll be able to use on future projects.
It’s a mini master class in contemporary upholstery foundations, designed to create confidence and build core skills. We’re talking about key techniques you’ll use time after time in your new found obsession.
Let's not forget the awesome piece of furniture you'll have at the end of the day!
Far from being stuck in the past, the simplicity of the form makes it the perfect canvas for a variety of styles, so get ready to channel your inner designer.
You’re wondering, if you buy the kit, will you really do it? Or will it be one more ‘one day’ project at the bottom of a long to do list? We’ve had our own personal experience with UFOs (un-finished objects), and know that keeping you motivated is important, and like minded community can be key to staying inspired.
The Atomic Ottoman Kit is an exciting piece for you to make, a grounding in contemporary upholstery skills, and the first chapter of furnish.ed.
Turning our live workshop into an at-home learning experience is our way of helping you transition from would-be upholsterer to confident maker, wherever you are - by making things simple, and delivering it to your door.
