No living room is complete without an ottoman. I say this because I was given a rather lovely one two years ago from my older brother and he’s since become a staple in my space (the ottoman, not my brother). I’ve named him Wily Moe the buffalo, and he’s quite the conversation piece.
While I appreciate my ottoman’s personality, there’s just no denying that he doesn’t fit very well into my mid-century casual decor. So a-hunting I went for the latest in footstools. Most of these won’t work in my space, but I just had to share them.
Left: Design Within Reach, Miss Rio Ottoman, $350: 100 percent recyclable, made from overstocked flip-flops.
Middle: Sleek Spaces, Pandora Storage Ottoman, $139.99
Right: Alsto, Storage Ottoman with Tray, $99.99
I think I’ll stick with Wily Moe for now, partially because my brother would be crushed if he disappeared from my decor. Which ottoman is your favorite?
