An easy idea for a coffee table is using an ottoman. Look for an ottoman, either purchased new or from a thrift store, with a unique shape and detailing. This ottoman, which Nashville, Tenn., designer Jonathan Savage used in a showhouse, has an octagonal shape and gold square nail heads.
The natural wood wall is a beautiful backdrop for this cute yet masculine boy's nursery. A rustic octagonal mirror adds another natural texture while decorating the space. A giraffe serves as a fun and unique base for the mounted sconce. A view of the bright green dresser adds bold color to the design.
White subway tile creates a clean, fresh look in this bathroom shower-tub combo. Black metal fixtures give the shower a modern feel. An octagonal window adds visual interest and brightens the space with natural light.

Hexagon-shaped bookshelves stack together like a bee hive to add a unique touch in this neutral boy's bedroom that is hallmark of contemporary design. Yellow striped curtains and yellow vase play against the gray furniture and hardwood floor to create visual interest. Houseplants add a natural element to the space.
An outside view shows off the sunroom's unique octagonal shape. The design allows for wraparound windows that let sunlight pour into the space. Another octagonal part of the home is the two-story back section that connects the home's separate wings.
