Ottomans and poufs are great furniture pieces that often perform double duty. Not only do they provide extra seating when needed, but often are a source of extra storage. Many ottomans will have removable or hinged lids to tuck away objects and items. Poufs are slightly different as they are more of a densely stuffed pillow, but they come in a variety of unique fabrics. Make sure to check the weight capacity of your ottoman, especially if it doubles as a storage box - not all are meant for seating, but are more of a foot rest.
