1 Ottoman 3 Functions

An ottoman is perhaps one of the most versatile pieces of furniture that you can add to any living space, indoor or outdoor. They take up relatively little space, are incredibly easy to move, and can serve up many different functions. Today, we are going to shine a light on the often overlooked ottoman and tell you exactly why you should have at least one in your indoor or outdoor living room.

Polywood Ottoman

Comfortable Footrest

The first, and most obvious use of the ottoman is that of a footrest. They are typically the same height or slightly lower than the chairs they are paired with, turning any chair into an instant lounge.

Coffee Table

If you have limited space and have to choose between an ottoman and a coffee table, ottomans are always the ideal answer. They are roughly the same height of as coffee tables and can easily double as a place to set some plates and drinks. All you  need is a sturdy serving tray to place on top of the ottoman to complete the transformation. If you are looking for a larger coffee table, push two ottomans together.

Additional Seating

One of our favorite ways to use an ottoman with a cushion is as additional seating. When you are hosting a dinner party those extra guests can pull up an ottoman and take a seat. Line up a couple of them to create a bench-like seating arrangement.

The Polywood ottoman featured above is an ideal choice for any outdoor space. It is durable, has a plush cushion, and would beautifully serve all three of the functions we listed above.
