Here is a great mid-century rattan ottoman attributed to the Italian neo-rationalist designer and architect Franco Albini. Most likely made in Italy in the late 1950’s / early 1960’s. Can also be used as a stool by adding a round cushion or converted to a side table by adding a round glass top. Will add a warm, organic touch of sophisticated design to a variety of home decor styles.

The ottoman is in clean, good condition. No major flaws, but there are a few cosmetic imperfections. The crisscross caning on the widest diameter rattan brace is slightly loose in a few places - this is very inconspicuous. One very small section of a vertical rattan piece has a break in it (photo 3 left of center towards the bottom). At normal viewing angles this is not noticeable. One quadrant in the very center of the top, where the manufacturer connected the circular rattan pieces together, has some movement in it - probably from imperfect finishing by the craftsman which caused some eventual weakening of the rattan material in this quadrant (photo 4 between 8 & 11 o'clock in the center). Overall, these flaws are minor and the ottoman is structurally solid and sturdy; the finish still has a nice warm tone, and the piece displays great.

Dimensions: 24” diameter; 14 1/2” tall
