While most of us find the additional storage of a modern ottoman to be ideal, many of us are blown away when we discover that they can also be used as a table. Many of the modern ottoman styles are designed to be used as a table, food tray, foot rest, and storage bench all wrapped into one attractive package. The modern ottoman storage bench can replace that coffee table and help you get control over typical living room clutter.
Of course the main advantage of storage tables is that you have a place to put some of the things you need to store around the house. This could be anything from books or magazines to blankets and extra pillows for a pull out couch. Coffee table ottomans and trunk tables work best for storing larger items and items that you dont want visible to your guests. One example of this type of table is the Hammary Kanson Cocktail Table with Storage Cubes. This is a particularly useful table since the four storage cubes slide out from under the table to form seats for people to use to sit around the table.
Sometimes, instead of just filling in an otherwise unused part of your room it can become the focus of the room. A good example of this is when you install a corner TV stand, and then position your furniture around it. Suddenly, you have your own cozy viewing area. Another elegant solution to the corner conundrum is to install corner floating shelves. This provides you with an attractive and functional way to display collections and curios. This type of shelving provides you with less shelf space, but it can add a striking highlight to your room.
There is no doubt that modern furniture styles have come a long ways towards being more comfortable and convenient. A prime example of this is how the ottoman of today serves several purposes, versus only offering a resting spot for feet and legs. The once heavy bases of vintage ottomans have been replaced with hollowed centers that turn the normal ottoman into a storage ottoman. A Little More than a Storage Bench.
