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.
A square ottoman looks great with a sectional that has equal lengths on both sides as well as U-shape sofas.
Ottoman coffee tables. Most well-made ottomans are solid enough to be used as coffee tables - and not just in an emergency! Many use their ottoman as a coffee table period! Your ottoman is usually lower in height than your chair or sofa and is perfect as a coffee table. Some ottomans have a shelf under the top that can be used to store magazines so apart from being upholstered they are more table-like than ottoman-like!
Storage can be stylish with this Oxford storage ottoman from Lulu & Georgia. It provides the extra storage you need in tight quarters without sacrificing style.
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.
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.
