What Sits Atop an Ottoman?

Ottomans aren’t just for resting your feet. More and more, designers are using ottomans in the place of coffee tables in the living room, making them extremely versatile pieces. So, what should sit on top of an ottoman?

We were really inspired by this fab ottoman set-up spotted on camillestyles.com.

Not one or two, but three trays rest atop this retro ottoman, containing coffee table books, fresh flowers and other chic accessories, as well practically providing a place for guests to set their drinks. And there’s still room for people to prop up their feet, sit back and relax!

Trays on ottomans not only become the perfect place for arranging a chic vignette, but they can also easily be moved when the ottoman needs to serve another purpose. So trays housing books, plants and other pretty little things make appearances on the ottomans in Hillary Thomas designs as well…
