I am also jealous of the large buttoned ottoman. It is possible to find antique versions of such stools (I know because I missed out on one at an antique fair on a buying trip a few years ago). If I were so lucky to find another, I would cover it in a neutral linen. I have a large chinoiserie tole tray which could sit atop for drinks etc.

Inspiring lounge room
I love the beautiful soft colours in this lounge room. We are about to update our own lounge room. We have painted it a lovely soft taupy colour (sorry, not great at describing colours) and are awaiting installation of our limewashed French oak timber flooring. Then it is time to find a couch or two. I love the white one in this photo but the one on the left is what keeps catching my eye. I love the shaped back. If anyone has any suggestions of where to shop, I would love to hear. Ideally I would like to find an antique one with a great shape and have it recovered. But not in white - too scary with red wine and chocolate, two of my indulgences! And both are best enjoyed on a comfy couch.
The only piece of furniture I am sure is going into our lounge room at this stage is the garden table that I posted a few weeks ago...I can see it holding one of my chinese lamps, etched glassware and scented candles. Still loving it.
