Button detail upholstered ottomans make a gorgeous centrepiece in any living space and a large tray is crucial in order to make sure it is as functional as it is stylish, creating a flat surface that will allow you to rest a drink or plate on. Look for large trays with handles that can be used to transport drinks from the kitchen like this one show in this design by Mackenzie & Temple Architects & Designers.
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.
From complimenting a seat with some extra comfort, acting as an independent piece of seating, being a soft coffee table, to even being able to store items, an ottoman is quite a useful piece of furniture. Want to see more living room ideas? Check out our definitive guide to living room design.
Of course the idea of a "huge", comfy chair all to yourself goes out the window as soon as the kids or pets spot the snuggler. If you could see this happening in your house‐how about selecting to upholster in one of our inventive Family Friendly Fabrics?

The seat height plus depth make a big difference to comfort also especially if you‘re short. So rather than checking measurements online visit a showroom and try before you buy. Pick an unusual form bright or patterned fabric or contrast piping with buttons to produce a fabulous focal point.
