Ottoman Obsession

For a couple of years now I have been obsessed with ottomans and benches, stools and poufs. They seem so useful, so multi-purpose, and yet glamorous at the same time. When we built our house two years ago, I wanted an ottoman in every room (except the kitchen). Of particular interest to me were the cloverleaf ottomans that were featured in several shelter magazines in entrance halls. I think they look terrific in a living room serving as a coffee table (with a tray) or extra seating. Following are photos of ottomans and poufs that have caught my eye:

Don't you love the ottoman on the left in this bedroom and the bench at the foot of the bed?

Safari cube ottomans from The Company Store

I think I'm going to order this pouf from urbanoutfitters to go in my bedroom, below:

These square ones are from westelm

Those violet poufs are available from JohnDerian in a million colors

One last note- Kelly at HighStreetMarket has vintage footstools that she reupholsters in great fabrics:
