Coffee Table or Ottoman? Both! 12 Double Duty Hybrids to Consider — Annual Guide 2017

Here’s why I propose everyone have at least one cocktail ottoman in their lifetime (and why I should take my own advice): Every night, I sit down on my sofa and I put my feet up on my wood coffee table. It’s hard as a rock, and it certainly does not offer a comfy spot to cushion my heels which leads me to clear the table top to make room for a pillow so I can finally be comfortable.

And it can serve as additional seating when I need it to? Win-win. (Contrary to popular belief, your guests shouldn’t sit on your coffee table. But they can sit on your coffee table if it’s also an ottoman.) Here are a few top contenders if you’re in search of a cocktail ottoman like I am.
