Showstopping square trays. Square trays are wonderful for creating symmetry in your room's scheme, particularly when placed on a gorgeous square ottoman or coffee table... We love the sleek simplicity of this tray styling idea from Bliss at Home! White on white is a timelessly elegant choice and the added metallic details through the chic agate coasters add an edge of glamour to this look.
It can be difficult to place buttons evenly, so I cheated. Instead of attaching the buttons with a nail back or hand stitching them into place, I used a template, marked the button placement with chalk and then made an "X" with two staples where the covered buttons will be glued into place.
Quite often ottomans are sold paired with a seat or are made to match another piece of furniture. They are made to either match exact patterns or at least compliment their accompanying chairs. However, this is not always necessary. An ottoman can be an accent piece, working to contrast or even stand on its own as an independent piece of furniture.
Complement your scheme with a decorative tray. Instead of looking to simple ottoman trays in neutral colours and materials, try a more decorative piece to ensure your arrangement packs a design punch!. Create a rustic ottoman tray scheme with a vintage style crate instead in chic weathered wood. Display a stack of crockery and arrange fresh cut flowers in a glass jar for a gorgeous farmhouse feel like this beautifully French-inspired scheme from Dreamy Whites.
