To really let your ottoman take centrestage, look to an oversized style with an extra large tray to match. We love that this tray has been used to tie in this property's beach house style through a bon bon jar of seaside pebbles, shells and sculptural coral.
Give your living room scheme a contemporary twist with a modernist perspex tray. Take a leaf out of Erin of The Sparkle's book and use your ottoman tray to house your favourite reading materials, a scented candle and a little posy of seasonal blooms.
This dressmaker detail on the corners adds a bump of sophistication to this dressed-up wooden pallet. That's it! Isn't she lovely? The finished upholstered ottoman adds softness to an industrial studio space, and can be completed by anyone with a few extra bucks and a basic knowledge of sewing and woodworking (and I mean basic).
As coffee tables and ottomans often stand in the centre of a room, they offer wonderful surface real estate for styling! Adding a large tray to your surface creates the perfect enclosed area for you to style with your favourite accessories and treasures and we've pulled together 29 of our favourite looks and tips to fill you with inspiration!
