Upcycle Ottoman
by Gus Modern

At A Glance:
Gus Upcycle OttomanThis modern ottoman is upholstered using reused fair trade coffee bags. Each ottoman is different, and features the logos and emblems that identify the original contents. An FSC-Certified hardwood frame holds it all together.

What's To Like:

  • Coffee bean bags that would otherwise have been thrown away have been put to use in the production of this ottoman. That kind of recycling makes us feel all warm inside.
  • The originality that you get from the uniquely-printed coffee bean bags makes this piece one that you'll be happy to show off.

What's Not to Like:
If you're looking for a predictable, single-colored ottoman that you can integrate into your decor without wondering what color will show up on your doorstep, choose a different ottoman. If you're in for a surprise, this ottoman is a seriously good choice.

The Bottom Line:
The Upcycle Ottoman from Gus Modern, with its reused coffee bag covering and responsibly produced hardwood frame, is a great-looking ottoman that brings a whole new meaning to the word "unique."


  • Dimensions: 16" h x 18" w x 18" d
  • Upholstered using surplus jute bags previously used to transport coffee beans
  • Screen-printed stencils and logos identify the original purpose of the coffee bags
  • FSC-Certified hardwood frame
  • Each ottoman is totally unique

    The ups and downs of this ottoman

    By Ryan T.

    from Los Angeles, CA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Gus Modern Upcycle Ottoman:

    I was looking for an ottoman that was eye-catching and could be used as a seat, footstool, and occasional table. Enter the Upcycle Ottoman, whose main perk says that each one is unique due to the combinations of whatever coffee bean bags the company can get their hands on.

    Functionally, this ottoman fills the roles of everything I wanted it to. Aesthetically, it's a bit rough (and crooked) around the edges. The stitching is tight overall, but there are places (especially the corners) where there are gaps and uneven spacing. The top design on mine was also cropped off at an angle, which is weird since the surrounding ones are fine. These stitching issues are a bummer, but I don't foresee it getting any worse down the road.

    In the end, I would still recommend it to a potential buyer who wants a sturdy ottoman that has a unique look to it.

    Service and delivery comments:

    My ottoman arrived wrapped in plastic, inside a box that was twice as tall as it. The ottoman was pretty snug at the bottom though thanks to the plastic wrap, so I doubt it was sliding around in transit.
