Few pieces of furniture are more versatile or mobile than the venerable ottoman. Useful and beautiful in almost any room of the house, these accent pieces are appropriate for every design style. Today’s post if going to focus on the living room and the ottoman as coffee table. Get this great look with all sorts of ottoman shapes and styles. See what we mean:
One type of ottoman that can be used very effectively as a coffee table is a large classic skirted round ottoman. The one shown here with button tufted top and pleated skirt is elevated by a brilliant orange and white tiger stripe.
Two square ottomans placed side by side also work well as a coffee table in front of a sofa or love seat. These sophisticated leather ones are accented with silver nail head trim.
An upholstered rectangular ottoman with wrought iron or metal legs is a great addition to a colorful eclectic living room. This contemporary design with chic gray and white padded top is set on powder-coated metal legs.
A large fully upholstered ottoman of any shape can be a brilliant design choice in lieu of coffee table. This beautiful round ottoman is entirely covered in stunning button-tufted blue velvet.
With an entirely different look, this large upholstered ottoman is the ultimate in coffee table perfection–bold in color and luxurious in texture.
An ottoman as coffee table can sometimes lead a secret life as a storage unit. Form and function merge beautifully here.
A large ottoman as coffee table can be a statement piece in any living room. A meticulously detailed black and white version is gorgeous space that merges a neutral background with vivid accent hues.
Not all ottomans turned coffee tables are bold statement pieces, some are simply elegant and functional. This low (and low key) ottoman with its traditional wood frame and padded top is a great example of that lovely restrained look.
