These are the reasons behind the increasing popularity of compact furniture like ottomans. Not only they are compact, but they are also multifunctional. When you buy an ottoman, it can be used as a storage place, a foot stool, a seat, a coffee table, as well as a tray. In the absence of arm rests or backs like in sofas, they are relatively lightweight, and therefore easy to move. Ottomans are perfect for dorm rooms, small apartments, condominiums, and small homes.
Ottomans can also be used for extra seating. An ottoman does not have a back or arms but they are still very comfortable to sit on. When the whole family is gathered in the living room or when you have guests over you can use an ottoman for extra seating. You dont need to pair an ottoman with a particular chair. You can place a couple of ottomans in your living room and they can be used either for seating or can be moved around to use as footrests.
