The Shape of Things to Come: In Ottomans

I have always had a thing for ottomans. The other day I was sourcing ottomans and came across these lovelies. They are so versatile:  add a tray and you have a table,  kick your feet up and take a load off, or use for extra seating.  Here are a few that caught my eye.

I love the shape of this one.
The natural feel of this one is nice as well, I like it in this setting, but could also see it in a casual beach setting, or a rustic space.

This one is my all time favorite! I love that it looks like a skirted ottoman but actually has hidden storage.


 This one also caught my eye. I love the nail head trim , casters and unique shape. 
Have you ever considered using an ottoman in your space?
