Home to two little girls and parents who love to entertain, this room needed to be family-friendly while still having a sophisticated feel for their guests. The curvy lines of the whitewashed console table are elegant but relaxed. Tufted cube ottomans are stowed below for extra seating.
A cube storage ottoman is one of the best multifunctional pieces for any small space, whether that's a dorm, kid's room or studio apartment. This Kube ottoman from the company Kvell comes in several fun colors like bright yellow, it ships flat and is easy to assemble within minutes.
The living room has a gray accent wall that makes the white window trim and black-and-white artwork feel bright and crisp. Lighter grays—the sectional, the ottoman—are layered in for an elegant, dimensional look.
The goal of this home makeover was to update, lighten and make a more useable space for the family who live here. In this living room, light red brick pairs handsomely with white shelving and a pale wood floor.
A basic wood cube is cheaper than buying an upholstered or leather ottoman. So Atlanta designer Rachel Greathouse did a quick and easy fix. She covered the top of a cube she bought from a discount home decor store with a piece of sheepskin, which creates a comfy spot for feet to rest. You also can find faux fur at a fabric shop and buy just enough to drape over the top. For even greater savings, you can build your own ottoman out of plywood.
A window lets in the perfect amount of natural light to frame this sitting area. Beige curtains surround the window and compliment the neutral tone of the carpet. A blue chevron blanket and a patterned pillow decorate the arm chair for a relaxed but stylish look. A cube leather ottoman with thick stitching and a small metallic table add texture to the area.
This versatile storage ottoman called Trae from the company Kvell has a reversible lid, with one side featuring a cushion and the other featuring a tray table. This cube storage ottoman is perfect for dorm rooms or any small space.
