West Elm’s pieces harmonize with a variety of styles. This round tufted ottoman is taller and skinnier than the others in this ideabook and stands above for value and versatility.
Just as a coffee table is likely to serve as a footstool at some point the ottoman invariably serves as a makeshift coffee table too. As a resting place for legs and feet an ottoman needs to be easy to clean and durable. For its durability and functionality ottoman leather has almost become synonymous with ottoman furniture. Leather bears up well under heavy use and its patina only improves with age. Ottoman leather suits both contemporary and traditionally decorated rooms too adding texture rich color and style.
A rectangular ottoman fits in well with an L-shape sectional. The longer width allows more people to use it. If you need storage choose one with a hollow center.
Kids love ottomans - and vice versa. Ottomans are child friendly - if a small child falls off an ottoman he or she is unlikely to come to any harm. They can be upholstered in child-friendly fabrics and can offer them a playing surface when they are sitting on the floor. They can be used to sit in front of the TV with a games controller and used as a hurdle in the hall for racing or as a horse when riding!
I love this yellow quilted piece. It's got a Mies Barcelona vibe brightened by vibrant color that's a fantastic fit with the white room and gorgeous view. This is a great example of how one low piece of furniture can add a whole new aesthetic dimension to a space.
Lulu & Georgia had me at royal blue. Its Florence ottoman provides a killer pop of color and a dash of glam for a bedroom or living space.
