Mini Round Faux Leather Ottoman

Mini round leather ottoman

This small and round faux leather mini ottoman does not have a storage option, but the vintage look and the style of this piece amply compensate for that. The ottoman comes in three color options: saddle brown, mixed patch work and dark brown. The first two will nicely fit any traditional décor while the dark brown would be a nice match for modern decors as well. What we particularly like about this piece is the brass nail heads which nicely compliments the darkly traditional leather covering of the stool. The ottoman is about 12 inches tall which means you can use it both as a seating option or as a plush footrest. And on occasions you feel cramped for space, you may also conveniently tuck it under your coffee table. Available at Houzz.


Drayton Espresso Leather Storage Ottoman

Square leather ottoman

Both functional and stylish, you will love this bonded leather storage ottoman for your living room. There is ample storage space with a separate storage box as well. The lid opens easily and the piece is sturdy enough so you can use the padded and upholstered lid as a comfortable seating option, too. We especially like the studs lined around the lower perimeter of the piece. Add extra elegance to this already luxurious piece of furniture. Available at Houzz.

Tufted Square Ottoman

Square tufted ottoman

This linen and burlap ottoman is not only beautifully designed, but the level of craftsmanship that goes into it makes it worth the last penny you spend on it. Made of American linens and locally sourced red oak lumber, this little beauty will fit in as nicely in rustic, wooden decors as in more modern and transitional ones. And no matter where you place it, rest assured that the piece will always work as the centerpiece of the room. Of course, we would have loved it even more if it came with storage options, but let’s not get greedy here, right? The ottoman also comes in as many as six different sizes. Available at Houzz.

Baxton Modern Cube Ottoman

Cube leather ottoman

These cube ottomans will come handy if you are looking for affordable and relaxed seating options around your living room or studio space. The pieces are covered in white faux leather and sport a tufted appearance. And since the frame is made of a mix of plywood and solid wood, these cubes are sturdy enough, too. We would recommend using them as extra seating options in larger rooms, especially when you have a lot of guests and friends visiting. Come in red, black and dark brown colors, but we love the white ones best. Available at Amazon.

Milltown Small Ottoman Bench

Small bench ottoman

 

We love the no frill sleek design of this ottoman bench. The piece will fit in nicely in all modern decors and will be ideal to have in your bedroom or somewhere close to the entryway. The soft linen grey upholstery of the seat nicely compliments the understated elegance of the solid pine wood construction of the frame and the legs. This stylish piece comes in two different sizes as well, so you can choose one that best suits your needs. Available at Amazon.


Rattan Storage Ottoman 2-Piece Set

Add some color and style to our room with these beautiful wicker & rattan storage ottomans complete with soft and cushioned hassocks on top. The body is made of handcrafted bulrush which is then dyed and lacquered in rich brown hues. The set includes a larger and a smaller stool. Both can be used for seating as well as storage. Additionally, the smaller one will also serve nicely as a footstool. Place the set in your master bedroom, the kids’ room or pretty much wherever you like. The body is sturdy enough, so you can easily use it for storing clothes, kids’toys, CDs or even books. The item also comes in five different shades of brown with slightly altered design for each one. So, make sure to check your options well before you order! Available at Amazon.

Upholstered Ride-on Ottoman in Animal Shape

Upholstered ottoman for kids

Come your kid’s birthday and this little ‘sheep’ ottoman might be the perfect gift you were looking for. Primarily meant as a footstool, the piece is sturdy enough to act as extra seating options (And you may make good use of that when you are reading your child his daily dose of bedtime story!). The surface is made of high elastic sponge covered with premium quality berber fleece. All nice and squishy to your touch! This particular ‘sheep’ model doesn’t come with a storage option, but you can find many other ‘animals’ on this line and most of them come with a storage option. And all of them are just as cute as this one, so pick any one of them if storage is important for you. Available at Amazon.


Small French Quarter Cube Ottoman

Cube French pouf ottoman

Update your living space with some style and a rich splash of color with these beautiful cube ottomans with attractive patterns. Standing at about 17 inches tall, the cubes can be used as side table, footstool or as extra seating options. You can also use them outdoors as the slipcovers are made of outdoor treated polyester and are equipped with up to 1000 hours of UV Protection. The style and the make are more like ottoman blended with beanbags! Available in navy blue and hot pink. So, get more than one of them if you will — and mix and match any which way you prefer! Available at Amazon.

Safavieh Mercer Collection Paula Ottoman

Round leather ottoman

This tall drum shape ottoman will work as a gorgeous accompaniment to any living room space with a modern or transitional décor. You can use it at the foot of your bed, by the side of your living room sofa, as a center table or as extra seating option—the choice is yours! Also you may use it to put books, vase, or a lamp atop it. The soft-toned clay upholstery wedded with the stated elegance of the brass nail trim of this accent piece is embracing of all kinds of uses and will nicely adapt itself to it. No storage with this piece, but we don’t see you complaining! Available at Amazon.


Elyse Natural Off-White Ottoman

Vintage antique ottoman

If you are in the lookout for an ottoman which also closely resembles an antique piece, this one is it. The piece has a carefully crafted shabby off-white look which screams of an old world elegance. We love pretty much everything about this piece—the wood-carved details, the off-white cotton upholstery with the uniform trim of brass finish nail heads and finally, the white washing of the base wood frame that completes the idea. The piece will blend in effortlessly with traditional old house decors and furniture, but it will perform just as well (if not better!) as the centerpiece of a contemporary living space. Available at Houzz.

Square Twisted Arizona Ottoman

Square wicker ottoman

To cap it off, we have this handicraft ottoman that will add a nice decorative accent to any space you put it in. Hand-woven in an abaca style, this salak brown piece looks sturdy enough in itself. However, what may not be apparent in the first sight is that it also includes a foam under-weave cushioning at the top to facilitate extra comfort. In short, an exquisite piece to add to your existing furniture set. Available at Houzz.

This storage ottoman is proof that furniture can still be art as much as an item of commerce. Available at Etsy.


Stone & Beam Round Arm Ottoman

Go for this one if you want a multifunctional ottoman in a classic casual style. The piece is wide enough to serve as a snack tray or as a coffee table and it actually comes as part of the Stone & Beam Round Arm Sofa Set, although you can buy it individually as well. There is a large storage space as well, however, the piece is craftily designed so that the lid and the storage division is not as visible as in most other ottomans—something the buyers will surely appreciate. What is more, the nylon/polyester performance fabric is amazingly resilient and cleans very well. Even if you accidentally spill some liquid over it, you can simply use a soft cloth to wipe the liquid off and no stain will be left behind. Available at Amazon.

Best Pouf Ottomans

How about a fluffy soft pouf ottoman to add more coziness to your home? If that’s what you’re looking for and you don’t care for extra storage or a piece of furniture that can double as a table, a cute pouf is just what you need. Check out our best pouf ottomans.

Vintage Berber Moroccan Pouf Ottoman

This floor cushion style wide pouf ottoman is crafted from a refashioned vintage Berber rug. The product comes from Berberology, a company that produces only artisan grade, premium quality handmade Berber wares for home. The refashioned cover is crafted by skilled artisans and is entirely handmade while the insert is designed by a professional upholsterer. You can order the ‘cover only’ or both the cover and the insert. Based on existing user reviews, we highly recommend this versatile product as a practical and elegant addition to your living room. Available at Etsy.

Crotchet Multi-Color Pouf Ottomans

If you like the feel and the warmth of the natural materials, you will love this wool knitted stuffed ottoman. The stuffed fabric bag is made of high-quality Lithuanian polystyrene beads and you can easily separate the crochet cover and the fabric bag as the cover comes with an opening at the bottom. This comes in handy when you need to clean your pouf. You can wash the bag and the cover separately.

The covers come in a number of soft toned pastel colors, so you can get multiple pieces and color coordinate them. The knitting pattern looks beautiful, so apart from the comfort involved, these poufs will also act as nice accent pieces around your living space. What is more, you can also request custom pieces with your own specified dimensions and colors and you can choose either square or round pieces; or, given the versatility of these products, preferably both! Available at Etsy.


White/Off White Crotchet Pouf Ottoman

These handmade pouf ottomans are made of firm and robust polyester rope which is highly durable and feels nice and pleasant to bare skin. The crotchet pattern with wood buttons has an attractive look to it, too, and one or more of these poufs will be a nice and welcome addition to your kids’ room or your living room.

The products are made and shipped directly from Lithuania and they also come with a convenient ‘made to order’ option. It may also help you to know that polyester rope, since it does not attract dust, is able to retain its color for a long time. So, you needn’t worry if you have your mind on the milk-white variation. Rest assured, the cover material won’t experience fading.

Now, one thing to keep in mind when you are buying this product (and this goes true for most products in this category and especially when they are brought online) is that the listed price is for the cover and the insert fabric bag. If you want the pouf complete with stuffing and all, you’ll need to pay more. Also since the stuffing makes the product much heavier, the shipping costs will go up a few notches, too. We mention these since some customers appear to have some misunderstandings in this regard and this sometimes results in poor reviews for the products, which however they do not deserve! Not for this reason! Normally, it is best to order the cover and the insert and you can then fill it up with a stuffing of your choice. Available at Etsy.

GRAN Handmade Leather Stuffed Moroccan Pouf Ottoman

Use this beautiful genuine leather ottoman to give an oriental feel to your den. Simple and elegant, the cover of this decorative pouf is fashioned of genuine red and beige leather designed with hand embroidered stitching.

Vintage Patchwork Indian Pouf Stool Ottoman

This beautiful Banjara style patchwork pouf cover is our absolute favorite. The handmade patchwork, just as the name suggests, is a wonderful and eclectic mix of a flurry of different patterns, designs, threads and colors—and often spangled or sequined. We also adore the bead trim with the decorative tassels. This is the art of an old and, sadly, disappearing world. So, get it while you still can! Just keep in mind that this piece is the only cover and there is no filler included. Available at Amazon.

Braided Bright Twist Pouf Ottoman

Made of a highly durable polypropylene material which is also stain resistant, this product is great value for money.
