Ottomans are a versatile piece of furniture that you can put almost anywhere in your home. Check out the creative ways our customers are using ottomans in their home.
As a Coffee Table
If you want a unique coffee table, use a tufted ottoman and if your space is limited try one of our foot stools. They’re plush and sumptuous, and you can still style them with different accessories if you add a tray, some coffee table books and a vase of blooms. Similarly, a smaller ottoman can be used as a side table.
If you use an ottoman as a table when you’re entertaining, it can pull double-duty as an additional space for seating as needed.

Of course, one of the primary ways to use any ottoman is as a footstool. We love the idea of a footstool with an armchair. It can be a good way to create a comfortable seating arrangement for entertaining or a cosy reading nook.
A chair with a footstool can go in a living area, sunroom, in your bedroom, or in the guestroom.
