/ interior design / related-hand-knotted-rugs-under-100



With such a chaotic,

fast-paced world out there,

it makes sense that we want our homes to be simple



and worry-free.

Our Bubble Knit Poufs are a smart, squishy way to create extra seating without taking up too much space in a room. Float them on a rug or tuck under a console when they’re not in use. Great for living areas, TV rooms and nurseries.:

There's always something that's missing,

whether it's storage


or simply space.


If you're searching for practical home solutions,

I'd like to recommend the ottoman,

.Add an exotic touch to your living room with a contemporary leather ottoman. This comfortable, handcrafted furniture is made of bonded leather in:

what some call "the chameleon of the furniture world."

Not only are they modern, stylish, and particularly bohemian,

they serve so many functions,

it's hard to believe!

7 Ways the Ottoman is the Most Functional Accent in Your Home

1. A Cozy Coffee Table

leather aldama chairs from the citizenry and maven collection leather pouf / sfgirlbybay:

Tired of the typical wooden coffee table?

Want to think outside the box?

Ottomans are a great coffee table substitute!

Larger ottomans provide that curve that some rooms so desperately need.

They are the perfect place to set down a food tray,

a book,

or the TV remote...

and these coffee tables are also great foot rests.

Pillar Ottoman | Modern, chic and effortless to incorporate, the Pillar Ottomans will be your new favorite accent. The single button tuft and considered welt add just enough tailoring to lend this piece to both traditional and contemporary interiors. Placed next to a sofa or bed as a side table, bunched in lieu of a coffee table or in the living room as seating, this ottoman is endlessly versatile.:

Want an even more unique look?

Gather together a few smaller ottomans that fit together

and create an interesting,

geometric ottoman coffee table!


Or group a few ottomans separately

for the neat look above!

Not only does using a few ottomans for your coffee table

give a unique look,

it does also provide extra seating in your living room.


2. Dining Room Chairs? Please.

Wood dining room chairs can be clunky,


and inefficiently large.

Fall Dining Room Blogger Stylin Home Tours: Fall 2014 www.simplestylings.com:

Ottomans are so much more comfortable

and they will slide under your table with ease!

As you can see above,

the ottomans are so much more space effective

than the wicker dining room chairs.

Using ottomans for all four seats would really open up the space

and make it feel so much larger!

dining room

I love these blue ottomans that double as dining chairs!

They look extremely comfy,

and so stylish!


3. A dog bed?!

Yes, you heard me!

A comfy ottoman can double as,

or be transformed into a dog bed!

Ottoman Dog Bed. The Ottoman works triple time as an ottoman, end table and seriously stylish dog house! See more pictures.:

The ottoman above still serves as a foot rest,

but has a cute space to house the puppy!

I love that this dog bed is still stylish and functional for the human in the house.

Dog beds can be glaringly ugly,

but ottomans as dog beds?

I sense a new trend coming!

a dog bed that fits in with the rest of your house! would be great for the cats too!:

The dog bed ottoman above is super stylish

and practical!

Don't the puppies look so comfy?!

4. Extra seating

Looking for extra seating

that is comfortable

but not invasive in your space?

Would look forward to coming home to this after a hard day's work.:

Because ottomans come in so many different shapes,


and colors,

they work well as seating

in any style home!

The ottomans above add a beautiful print to the space

and two extra seats!

Don't have extra room for ottomans to be spread out in the room at all times?

You can pick ottomans that will fit under your coffee table,

and store your extra seating there when they're not being used!

I'm loving these fluffy shag ottoman chairs!


5. A Convenient Foot Rest

One of my favorite functions of the ottoman

is using it as a foot rest.

Ottomans are the perfect height to rest your toes

after a long day!

Paired with an equally comfy looking chair,

the ottoman above looks like the perfect place

to sit back and relax!

Having your feet propped up

makes sitting activities

like reading,

browsing the internet,

and watching a movie

all the more comfortable!

I would love to get an old chair and recover it to look like this!:


6. At the Foot of your Bed

Need a place to sit

when you're putting on your shoes in the morning?


Putting an ottoman

(or two)

at the foot of your bed is a stylish solution

to a simple problem!

Bedroom with white walls, white headboard, antique brass mirrors, wood bedside tables, light pink ottoman and blanket, patterned pillows, and light carpeted floors:

I love the look of the pink ottomans above!

They serve a purpose

and add such a unique look to the space.

7. Savvy Storage Solutions

Many ottomans open up

so that you can store whatever you wish inside!

Creative Small Home Office Ideas. AWESOME!!:

The possibilities are endless

when it comes to ottoman storage.

You can store files,

like in the ottoman above,

Or you can store blankets.

Some people choose this stylish option to store their shoes,

others use it to store books

or even drinks!
