Specifically designed so you can learn how to upholster at home.
We’ve placed 10 years of furniture making, upholstery and teaching experience in a box, along with quality supplies and professional video tutorials.
It's a mini master class in upholstery, that ends in a fab piece of furniture!
It can be done in a day, or in smaller steps and stolen moments. You can make it by yourself, or with a whole host of friends.
Students of all experience levels will The Atomic ottoman a rewarding and creative outlet, and the upholstery techniques learned throughout will take you from DIY to professional.

The Atomic Ottoman Kit is designed to teach you how to upholster using simple hand tools you probably already have - flat & phillips screwdrivers, pliers, hammer, sharp scissors and a medium duty staple gun from your local multinational hardware chain.
Access to a sewing machine is great, but not essential - there are only 2 straight lines to be sewn in this project, and if you really don't like sewing machines, one seam can be avoided altogether, while the other can be done by hand.
We'll step you through every inch of the process in thorough, comprehensive video tutorials, and connect you to an online group of students to share support successes and inspiration!
