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.

Link multiple screens. If you have multiple TV screens then it’s likely you’ll want to have access to the same channels content and films on each screen. Traditionally this required multiple (and messy) set-top boxes and complicated subscriptions but now centralized TV distribution offers a more elegant solution.
