Choosing an Ottoman, Pouf, or Indoor Bench

      Complete your living room landscape with an ottoman, pouf, or bench. Whether you're looking for extra storage, a place to rest your feet, or additional seating, these simple pieces accommodate a variety of needs.

      Ottomans: Not Just a Footstool

      Not only do they make comfortable footstools, but ottomans also double as coffee tables and storage for relaxation essentials. A foot ottoman with storage in front of the sofa makes a great place to rest your legs while reading or watching television. Stow extra throw pillows and blankets inside so they're within reach when you need them. For a casual alternative to the traditional coffee table, consider an ottoman with a tray. The removable tray, aside from coordinating effortlessly with the wood finish of the ottoman, provides a convenient flat surface to set drinks and snacks. Frequently find yourself with more guests than there are seats? A cushioned ottoman with storage makes an ideal spot to sit during lively conversations. Keep a few parties or board games in the storage compartment to energize a low-key gathering.

      Floor Poufs: Leather, Knitted & More

      Small as they are, floor poufs make a big impact on a room's versatility. In the living room, top a square pouf with a tray for a place to display special photos and memorabilia, or scatter a few knitted poufs around the room for cozy, casual seating during movie night. Consider a white pouf ottoman in rooms with a classic vibe, or anchor an eclectic room with a neutral pouf ottoman. Poufs are also a natural choice for kids' rooms and playrooms.
