Why specifically ottoman coffee tables, you may ask? To begin with, these are some of the most versatile pieces of furniture you can have at your disposal. With myriad uses and placements even within a single room, this hybrid furniture can mean the ability to shift the composition of your living room without any heavy lifting.
The ottoman coffee table can be used as a standard foot rest or guest seating, naturally. It can also function neatly as a coffee table, using a wooden try or reversible cushion top.
The reversible top is one of many styles of surface these units may feature. Larger ottomans may hold as many as four individual cushions, flipping to reveal tray table surfaces and hidden storage within.
The extra space can be moved to laps, and the interiors can hold anything from blankets to board games to remote control collections. Flippable, hinged, raised, or otherwise, the cushions on many of these models are more than meets the eye.
Great at creating an “extension” for existing furniture or simply matching a given theme with a new place to sit or place drinks, the ottoman coffee table is an aesthetically pleasing and utilitarian addition to any living room.
