Don’t let the white fool you; this upholstered cube from Ballard Designs is anything but basic or boring. And it’s actually available in myriad colors and patterns.
Pottery Barn doesn’t wimp out with ottomans. Case in point: this Caden ottoman. The large leather top on strong wooden legs makes it a perfect table or stellar seating.
Just as a coffee table is likely to serve as a footstool at some point the ottoman invariably serves as a makeshift coffee table too. As a resting place for legs and feet an ottoman needs to be easy to clean and durable. For its durability and functionality ottoman leather has almost become synonymous with ottoman furniture. Leather bears up well under heavy use and its patina only improves with age. Ottoman leather suits both contemporary and traditionally decorated rooms too adding texture rich color and style.
For a serious feminine touch this Betsy bench can be your go-to girly ottoman. With plenty of color and fabric options Ballard Designs makes it easy to integrate it in your space.
Kids love ottomans - and vice versa. Ottomans are child friendly - if a small child falls off an ottoman he or she is unlikely to come to any harm. They can be upholstered in child-friendly fabrics and can offer them a playing surface when they are sitting on the floor. They can be used to sit in front of the TV with a games controller and used as a hurdle in the hall for racing or as a horse when riding!
An ottoman in the closet - what a great idea! This simple addition - which doesn't take up too much space in this admittedly huge walk-in - is so functional. Plus it gives the closet a dressing room feeling that gives whole new meaning to "shopping in your closet".
