Any sources for ottoman feet?

I'm finishing a project where I will offer a custom made ottoman to IDs. One price, any size up to 23" x 23" x 23". 2" foam on top and 1" foam on all sides.

They give me their size and either 1 yard or 1 1/2 yards of fabric, (16" x 16" x 16 and up require the extra 1/2 yard), and I plug the size into my spreadsheet that tells me what sizes of wood to cut out, what sizes of foam, what sizes of poly batting, what sizes for the 5 fabric panels that I sew together, and what size of cambric to cut out. The idea is to minimize my time as much as possible.

I have sliders for the feet - plastic or carpet, but I want to also offer approximately 2" high feet that are either bare wood that I would lacquer finish or paint. Or the other idea is to just offer black, white, and maybe cream colored plastic feet.

What I'm selling is a custom size with their fabric. I can't compete against store bought ottomans.

So, any sources for ottoman feet?

My favorite leg for ottomans is the good old bun foot.

Do not cut yourself short when pricing against store bought ottomans. Even Ashley's cheap and simple ottomans are priced at $200 to $400. Your offering a service to decorator's using their fabric and in their custom size. They cannot get that at Ashley. With the right marketing you can surly make this work.

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

Hey Gene,

I found a company called Van Dyke's Restorers that carries all that stuff. All kinds of different feet & some other things too. Check them out.

I think they have been available in Constantinople since the 1400 's -  if you call their 800 number they can send you feet but only in pairs
