Living Room Furniture – Coffee Table or Ottoman

There are times when you would want to choose between Ottomans, Coffee tables, Benches or even Foot Stools. Well each of them have their own unique function, but I personally feel an Ottoman can certainly integrate the function of all three. Ottomans are indeed very popular and likeable – more so when you compare them to mere coffee tables. This is because they do manage to serve us with the functionality of the coffee table! You can choose to go in for a flat ottoman with tight tops instead of the padded one which gives you a pillow effect. The reason for this is that you easily set things on top of them when you choose to use it as a coffee table, without the fear of the objects toppling over! And yes the second most attractive reason being you can quite easily manage to place your feet on the Ottoman when you are in relaxed and semi-reclining position when you are reading or maybe watching TV or maybe even taking a snooze. These all-purpose ottomans can be custom made to fit the requirement of the room.

Now there are many uses of an ottoman. At times when we need extra seating in a room, an ottoman is surely a great alternative. Many perhaps would like to use a folding chair – but an ottoman is certainly more attractive than your run of the mill folding chairs. Now there is yet another secret an ottoman holds than no coffee table or any other table or bench can hold and that is the storage space. Any home whether it is big or small can certainly do with a good bit of storage space. Here you have an inbuilt storage space that could hold, cushions, pillows, a place where you can easily dump old magazines or games to be disposed of later.
