A further way to add an ottoman to your room set is to substitute the piece for your existing side table or coffee table. To make the most of this style, opt for a large rectangular ottoman and place centrally as the centrepiece of a modular suite or corner unit. Not only does this style add a decorative edge to a classic look but it also provides for additional seating capacity for large, impromptu social gatherings. Typically, this style works well in more modern settings so do be cautious if you have a period property which may call for a traditional coffee table. If this is the case, you may wish to experiment with colours and materials opting for natural leathers or neutral, toned down fabric choices.
