Using Storage Ottomans for Style and Function

Striped Linen Storage Ottomans styled under Lavender Hill Interiors 3 Drawer Oak Console table with our Duck Egg Blue Lamps with striped Shades

A key tenet of true Hamptons design is that it’s functional, comfortable, and meets your lifestyle needs.

With that in mind, we like furniture that can serve multiple purposes, which is the case with our newly introduced collection of storage ottomans. After all, aren’t we always looking for new and creative ways to add storage to our homes?

Our collection of storage ottomans has a compact footprint, and their square shape ensures they fit nicely into even tight spaces. The ottomans work well on their own or in pairs.

So how can you use them? 

Thats the great thing - there are so many options.

We have styled them in 3 spaces,

-  The bedroom,
-  The living room  
-  Under a console table

However, there is no limit to how these can be used around the house.  They allow for a compact storage unit as well as doubling up as a seating for a smaller space.  They will also find a place just as comfortably in a larger home where design and style are important. 

While we have suggested these options for usage, the options are unlimited of where these functional ottomans can be used.

The Bedroom

We love the idea of a couple of storage ottomans at the end of the bed. You can add cushions and blankets you aren’t using, and they’re a good way to integrate colour and pattern into your bedroom as well as the perfect end of bed seating.

Under a Console Table

We also like to add them under a console table, not just because of the storage component. Since they’re upholstered, they can also soften the space under the table, creating a nice contrast between materials.

A great double up storage and decor

Easily moved, the storage ottoman is able to be perfectly located under the console table to move if required for extra seating, but also to store those extra items in the entry that need to be hidden away.

The Living Room

Storage ottomans can work in a living area at the end of an armchair, as a footrest, or you can pair them together as a coffee table.

 They’re the perfect addition beside a chair as a side table, or you can even use a set opposite a sofa as additional seating. Decorative trays go well on top if you use them as a table surface.  Here are a few examples of how these storage ottomans can be styled in different ways to create a different look.

What Our Customers Say

Elizabeth M.
Beautiful Hydrangea linen.
The bedhead arrived in what seemed a short turn around of time from ordering. It was packed very well and when unpacked it was just as pictured online. Very easy to slide in an army bedhead. The quality and finish is of excellent quality. The linen fabric is a beautiful feel and the print is so elegant in colour and would suit many a decor.

Blue Hamptons Reversible Throw
Such a beautiful and practical accent for our sofa! ✨ This throw matches my Lavender hill cushion set in blue perfectly and is honestly super soft, cosy and the perfect size to wrap as it’s a tiny bit bigger which I love! xxx
