The humble ottoman or the pompous pouffe … whatever you want to call it … we’re fans. Use them as footstools, extra seating or add a tray and use as a side table. The ottoman is probably the most versatile piece of furniture around. But functionality isn’t the only appeal. A cool ottoman can add an eclectic touch to any room. Don’t be too matchy, matchy … add a Moroccan leather pouffe or a splash of colour to give any room a lift. Here are some of our faves …
