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.
If you are spending time styling a tray for your ottoman or coffee table then you want it to be noticed and layering metallics on metallics is a sure-fire way to ensure that your tray takes centre stage. We adore this gorgeous gold on gold look from Swoon Worthy, recreate it with the fabulous Form Tray from Tom Dixon.
Sometimes you need to rest your feet, and there is just nowhere to put them, so it’s great when a chair has just a bit something extra to help you really kick back. A wonderful addition to almost any living room is an ottoman. An ottoman allows you to really put your feet up and can add another level of comfort to a chair or couch.
An ottoman, by definition, is typically a short and padded piece of furniture that is often used as a footstool, though they do have other uses. Ottomans often look like little furniture cubes, but can come in other shapes and styles. Not all ottomans are square; round and octagonal are other popular shapes for ottomans. Also, while most ottomans appear solid, with hidden storage under the seat, there are a number of open bottom designed options.
