Sushi Style

I'm so excited about today's post! Created by my fellow Portfolio Center alum, Mimi Tin, these super cute and functional ottomans "have the look of meticulously prepared sushi. Silk thread is woven on supple fabric to create the illusion of delicate sushi fillings. These multi-functional ottomans can be used as a single piece atop the sushi tray base, or as 'mini' ottomans once the 'seaweed' wrap is removed."

Mimi, an Atlanta-based designer and teacher, runs her own design studio and was inspired by Pop Art and Claes Oldenburg when creating these fun and quirky pieces. You can learn more about the product line here.

Additional products will be coming out in the fall; the Sushiami line, geared towards a younger market, extends out to beanbags and accessories. Go Mimi!
