We’ve scoured the reviews so you don’t have to: here are the five best ottomans you’ll meet this year.

Best Overall 

Best Features: Comes Assembled - Made in the USA
Height: 18"
Width: 60"
Depth: 27"
Why It’s Great: The Delano comes assembled and is made in the USA, but the best part about this family favorite is that it’s a part of the Special Order Program. Choose a shade you love before buying, then get ready to want to give this ottoman a 5-star rating (and wish it were possible to give it 6)!

Delano Cocktail Ottoman: Review Highlights

“It goes perfectly with my sofa that I brought, it is sturdy and I love the color. It is firm enough to sit on when additional seating is needed as well. Would highly recommend, well-crafted piece of furniture.” - LADYD55

“Love the color, love the quality, and just the right fit to use as a coffee table or a foot ottoman. Would definitely recommend to others as Living Spaces did it again with exceeding my expectations. The ONLY place I shop for furniture!” – Sandie

“Bought this ottoman with the matching couch and so glad we did. When you slide it into the space, it fills in the gap and becomes a giant lounger for the whole family to enjoy a movie together. We LOVE the sofa and chaise lounge. Not to mention we spent far less than we would have elsewhere. Thank you Living Spaces!” – Troy

Best Features: Plush cushion - Tapered legs
Height: 20"
Width: 62"
Depth: 30"
Why It’s Great: The Aquarius' reviews section is a symphony of praise: from notes on its comfort to color to style to feel, there isn't a song left unsung by the happy orchestra that is the Aquarius' customer base. Buy the Aquarius for its affordability and versatile size – and keep it for its timeless comfort and style.

Aquarius Cocktail Ottoman: Review Highlights

“Love our ottoman. We have the Aquarius sectional too and love having movie nights and naps by pushing the ottoman next to the sectional so it makes a massive couch/bed.” – netj

“Was worried that it might not go as well with the light grey Aquarius I sofa that we own, but that was completely unnecessary! It looks great, is comfortable as seating or a footrest, and anchors the room better than our old coffee table! Just put a little tray on top for remotes and such, and you’re all set.” - Plooobert

“Loving this ottoman! Purchased the darker ottoman with the lighter couch and it looks fabulous. Very sturdy condition and quite comfy to rest your legs on. My dogs love to nap on it. I also put a gold tray to hold a beverage and remotes and I never worry that the drink may spill as it is a solid ottoman. Great piece for the price, highly recommend!” – Slangtry

Most Comfortable Ottomans

Best Features: Small space friendly - Beech wood legs
Height: 18.5"
Width: 31.9"
Depth: 24"
Why It's Great: Those who own the Allie Jade know: from the moment you bring home this stylish ottoman, it’s almost as though you become a member of a secret society – a society in which anyone who is not a member can never fully understand the joy of what owning such a perfect piece can bring. With that said, we (along with a lot of other people) recommend this chic design.

Allie Jade Ottoman: Review Highlights

“This ottoman is a great addition to your living space. See what I did there. It’s the perfect pop of color and the fabric is very easy to clean (dog hair for me). It was also very easy to assemble.” – Ana T

“This was actually a piece I saw on display at the store when I bought my initial set of couches. I opted not to purchase this piece because I was afraid that my living room would be too cluttered, but I am soo glad I went back to buy it a month later. It is such a useful piece of furniture that is currently used as an ottoman, extra seating & occasionally a table! When not in use as an ottoman, it is placed by my armchair and serves as a perfect little end table. Sometimes my bf uses this as an extension to our couch to serve as a chaise when we are lounging and watching a movie. I love this piece!” – Jessi

“I got the couch in the store and had hoped to get the ottoman at the same time. We were going for a flexible sectional idea. The color and height matches perfectly and it gives us the options for entertaining we were hoping for. We ended up ordering online and attaching the legs couldn't be easier.” – JimmyD

Best Features: Small space friendly - Crisp color
Height: 19"
Width: 30"
Depth: 24"
Why It’s Great: Life is better when you're sitting on the Mcdade. To take the sentiment a step further: any momet you're not sitting on the Mcdade is a moment you wish you were sitting on the Mcdade. Get the Mcdade. Enjoy life. (It's as simple as that, folks – and if you don't take our word for it, at least listen to the throngs of customer reviews!)

Mcdade Cocktail Ottoman: Review Highlights

“I really like the size, I have a small apartment and it is perfect for it. My girl and I will sit on the couch and both be comfortable with our legs on it. Also makes it perfect for an extra table for entertaining. Thanks Living Spaces! – Antonio 82

“I started living on my own for the first time this year and needed to purchase my own furniture. I spent a lot of time figuring out what kind of look I wanted and reading reviews before I purchased anything. I'm very happy I decided to go with the Mcdade couch and matching ottoman! It's comfy and surprisingly light. You will definitely want to get this ottoman if you're buying the couch! – Imani

“I've had the Mcdade couch for about 2 years and finally decided I *NEEDED* the matching ottoman to make it more like a chaise lounge couch. It has not disappointed. It's definitely firmer than the couch - but I think that's intentional by design (serving as a standalone seat and/or for feet). It's become a popular piece of furniture for us - a recommendation if you have any other pieces in this set.” - adge

Best Storage Ottoman

Best Features: Small space friendly - Storage lid
Height: 18.1"
Width: 40.2"
Depth: 24.8"
Why It’s Great: As anyone who has ever tried to keep organized knows, the more stuff you accummulate, the more storage you need. Luckily, the Lucy comes with storage for days of accummulation. Just remove the lid and place your books, toys, pillows, blankets – you name it! (By the way, just add a "k" and Lucy turns to Lucky, an apt moniker; when you're not using the "k," just keep it in the storage!)

Lucy Cocktail Storage Ottoman: Review Highlights

“I ordered the ottoman for my living room as it has a nice dark color (indeed it does) which fits the modern interiors that I have. I mostly use it as a leg rest or as an additional sitting place when people come by. It is very comfortable for either occasion. Storage inside is pretty big for a couple of fluffy blankets.I would recommend it for those who want an ottoman.” – Anonymous

“This ottoman is a great addition to the matching Lucy couch. We purchased the couch a couple months before getting the ottoman and once we had the couch, we knew we wanted the ottoman too. It is the perfect size and just as comfortable as the couch. It really maximizes the size of the couch and it’s a bonus that it stores several large blankets. If you have or are getting the Lucy couch I strongly recommend getting the ottoman too, you won’t be disappointed!” – Kait S

“We love this Lucy Dark Grey Ottoman. So much, that we've purchased another one. We bought it as an addition to our Lucy Dark Grey couch we've also purchased from Living Spaces. The additional storage is perfect for our extra pillows and blankets for easy reach on movie nights. We are currently using the 2nd storage for our 2yr old and 8yr old boys’ toys. It helps keep the clutter down, but still accessible for when they want to bring it out to play. Over all, a good Ottoman, 2 thumbs up from us.” – SammiexB
