Hughey Hartman Upholstery
Two last names of excellence! E. P. Hartman my grandfather started the company. He was a skilled craftsman who actually caned furniture. My father Emerson Dee Hughey worked for my grandfather until 1962 when he bought my grandfather out. My father retained the two last names. We were located in Broad Ripple for many years at 840 East 64th street. This is where I grew up. My father's business continued to expand and he owned many houses in the area. Always needing more space. My father had the opportunity to buy a big plant at 5335 N. Witnthrop Ave. It was the old Auto Teria Car wash where the Amy's made self serve car wash. My brother David Hughey is still down at this location doing repairs on cars and boasts. In 2010 we moved the family business up to Carmel, IN.
An ottoman is a form of couch which usually has a head but no back, though sometimes it has neither. It may have square or semicircular ends, and as a rule it is
what upholsterers call "overstuffed” — that is to say no wood is visible.
In American English, an ottoman is a piece of furniture consisting of a padded, upholstered seat or bench,
usually having neither a back nor arms, often used as a stool, footstool or, in some cases, as a coffee table.
Ottomans are often sold as coordinating furniture with armchairs or gliders. An ottoman can also be known as a footstool,
tuffet, hassock, "Sitee" or pouffe. In British English, "ottoman" also denotes an upholstered seat without a back or arms, but one that usually serves as storage, with the seat hinged to form a lid.
Ottomans can be used throughout the house, in the bedroom, gaming room, family room and guest room.
Leather and bench ottomans are used as alternatives to sofas.
