The leather ottoman, or leather footstool, is a versatile staple. A streamlined shape can give you extra seating, a relaxing foot prop – or even a chic cocktail table. Plus, the thick, 100% leather provides a lush feel and long-lasting durability.
Styling with a Leather Ottoman
A leather ottoman as a table is a polished way to accentuate a matching sofa or sectional. With two leather pieces, however, it can be easy to lose sight of a cultivated space – unless you accessorize.
When accessorizing a leather ottoman, start with a tray. (On a leather ottoman, a metallic tray is traditional and a wooden tray, modern-rustic.) Add a soft, bright element, like a white flower in a white sea glass vase, to break up the sleek leather. Finally, fill any awkward remaining space – and showcase your interests – with one or two of your favorite coffee table books.
Leather Ottomans as Extra Seating
If you need extra seating that blends in with your style, consider a leather ottoman.
A leather ottoman next to a sofa is timeless, but the versatility of a leather ottoman also lets you get creative. Push two leather ottomans together to form a leisure bench – a refined addition to any entryway or home office. Or, keep them under a traditional coffee table, ready to be pulled out at any time for unexpected guests. Sturdy yet easy to move, a leather ottoman makes rearranging and refreshing your space a breeze.
