Ottomans That Lead a Double Life

One of the leading trends in furniture for the past several years is to design pieces with a double function. This is seen especially in benches and ottomans with drawers or lids making them useful for extra storage. Here are some of the favorites at Annarella Home.



American Leather offer this lovely cube, called Uno, in leather or ultra suede to be used as an ottoman, coffee table or stool. The upholstered top reverses to a tray when you need a hard surface to sit a cup or glass. It comes off to reveal storage inside.


Here is the Keifer model from American Leather which can be used as a bench in an entry or under a window as well as a coffee table in front of your sofa. Inside is plenty of room for throws, pillows, videos, toys or anything else you want near at hand but hidden.


This sleek and contemporary bench/coffee table is the Madera from American Leather. Cushion and trays are removable so they can be switched around. You can put your feet up in the middle and still have a practical surface for your drink. This also comes smaller with one cushion and one tray. I love the punch of red, but it is available in over 60 leathers and microfiber choices.

Lee Furniture, our favorite earth-friendly furniture company, has created this pie ottoman. Each section is a stand alone stool which is great for extra seating, but push four together and you have a stylish round ottoman.

This upholstered stool from Lee Furniture can double as an occasional table next to a chair or sofa. Or picture 2 under a window for a different take on a window seat ready to pull into the room when needed for extra seating.

Two benches from Brownstone Furniture offer extra storage in the bedroom. With drawers to hold spare linens these look pretty and can still serve as a place to sit and put your shoes on.

Don't you love furniture that can be super functional and look good at the same time?
