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.

Moroccan poufs are a dime a dozen these days but this lime-green one from Serena & Lily stands out from the crowd for obvious reasons. Or choose another bold color to take a room from blah to brilliant.

The ottoman as a footrest. Many people love to stretch their legs out when sitting. Whether they are reading a book watching TV or simply resting or napping people like to elevate their feet and legs. The biological effect is to reduce the stress on the heart in pumping blood up through the non-return valves in the veins of their legs by keeping your legs raised your heart has less work to do and you consequently use less energy so can relax easier. 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.

Adjustable shelves make room for a variety of components. While most pieces have the same depth they won't always be the same height. Using furniture with fixed shelves means running the risk of having a component not fit or needing to stack on on top of the other potentially limiting its use and risking overheating.

Separate. Separating the television and fireplace within the same space is difficult to get right but it’s done masterfully here. The wood paneling running up the wall and over the ceiling to surround the fireplace wall makes for a perfect integration — it almost feels as if they are on the same wall. Think carefully about your furniture plan when you have two focal points in a living room. What would you and your guests prefer to see — the fireplace or the television?
