Entertaining with Large Ottomans



Move over, coffee tables — large ottomans are making a comeback on the decor scene. Often associated with elegant parlors of the past, designers are using large ottomans instead of coffee tables in living areas, where they provide a stable setting for drinks or books and act as a central visual point for the entertaining space. From leather to floral print versions, the following ottomans are standout pieces in these living rooms.
