tim webber design duffel stool & ottoman detailed after luggage





tim webber design duffel stool and ottoman are detailed after drawstring bags. some of their various features, such as marine rope handles and fortifying accents, have been appropriated to create objects that express quality, functionality and durability. the furniture features a strip of differentiating color at the base, which references the leather found on the bottom of a duffel. this creates options for customization with many different fabric colors available.


‘duffel stools’ work great when accompanied by the ‘duffel ottoman’, which can be used as a seat or a coffee/task table



the draw string and various accents of the duffel bag inform the marine rope and leather patches of the furniture. these features paired with the wool felt fabric create a strong sense of quality and workmanship. the handles provide an excellent functional aspect, allowing easy movement of the stool or ottoman – great for collaborative spaces and open plan environments at home or in the office.
