Oh, the ottoman. I feel like it's such an underrated piece of furniture. It's like this extra piece that's floating around and doesn't really get the respect it deserves. You will spend loads of time picking your sofa and chairs, but what about the ottoman? If you live in a small space you may already be on to this, but they can be a small space dweller's favorite piece of furniture.

They're really so versatile. Even the most basic style can perform double duty, but many styles are even more — it's a foot rest, a table, a seat, a storage space, all in one. Here are 12 double (or more) duty ottomans for you to consider to maximize your small space.
