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.
Ottomans are an added luxury to any sectional but they come in so many shapes sizes and styles that choosing one can be overwhelming. Picking the right ottoman for your modular sofa depends on the configuration and the look you want to achieve; you want to find one that has the right scale height and feel to coordinate with your space.
Optional seating. Whether it is styled in the form of a box or a chair on short legs an ottoman is upholstered and can be used as a seat. Perhaps not as comfortable as an armchair but sufficient as an emergency or alternative seating option in your home during parties or when a crowd of friends descend upon you. It can be stored away under a table and pulled out when needed - or rolled out if your ottoman is fitted with casters.
Accent pieces. While ottomans are footrests seats and storage containers they can also be used as accent pieces that pick out a color in your décor and display it is bright vivid color. In fact it can scream out to everybody in the room "Look At Me!" - I am beautiful so don't ignore me. Ring a bell? Ottomans can be used as occasional furniture for storage of these ugly bits and pieces you need in your room but want hidden and as an extravagant item of furniture showing itself off.
A rectangular ottoman fits in well with an L-shape sectional. The longer width allows more people to use it. If you need storage choose one with a hollow center.
Lulu & Georgia had me at royal blue. Its Florence ottoman provides a killer pop of color and a dash of glam for a bedroom or living space.
