Storage ottomans are virtually upholstered boxes with padded lids. The lids are hinged and open up to provide storage space that can be used in a number of ways. For example an ottoman can be used as a coffee table with a sofa bed and also to store the bedding for when the sofa is needed as a bed. It can be used as a piano stool storing sheet music and other items. They can be used in children's rooms for toys computer or video games and controllers and in your bedroom as a handy seat for dressing while storing bedding spare pillows or your nightclothes. These are just examples - an ottoman can be used to store whatever you need it to.

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!

The padded top of an ottoman permit you to do this comfortably and many use this type of furniture with their recliner rather than use the footrest that comes with the furniture.

Media armoires worked great back in the day of analog TVs. Close the doors to hide the electronics and open them to watch. Those were simpler times. But today flat-panel TVs are put on display more often than not.

The little red light needs to be pointed directly at the component to change the channel turn up the audio or pause the movie. A solid surface blocks this communication.
