Oodles of poodles grace this footstool/ottoman by award-winning artist Anne Beard. This cream and tan skirted “poodle pod” brings an updated element of mid-century whimsy to any room. Perfect size to pair with a vanity or use as a footstool. The cushioned seat quickly adds one more seat to the area. As always from this artist, one-of-a-kind work of art for the poodle lover and collector.
Anne grew up on a mountain ranch in Washington and lived on the Oregon high desert for the past twenty years. This region’s traditional lifestyles infuse her work with western character. A veteran of her craft, Anne’s fashion background is apparent in her appliqued upholstered furniture designs that range from tailored ottomans to nature-inspired armchairs. Anne was inspired by her mother, an award winning fiber artist and her brother, a custom woodworker. She admires and appreciates the entire range of western craft and often integrates it into her designs.
Blending the individual expression and functional practicality characteristic of the western legacy, I create one-of-a-kind upholstered furnishings for the contemporary lifestyle.
