One of my favorite ways to spend a chilly October night is curling up on my couch to watch one of my favorite horror movies (Hereditary and The Shining, in particular, never get old). Throughout the day, I love keeping my couch neat, with just a couple of throw cushions adorning it, but once the moon comes up, I love piling on all my blankets to create the coziest movie nights. To keep these blankets both stored away and easily accessible, a coffee table or ottoman with hidden storage are the ultimate options. 

Both coffee tables and ottomans are useful as a surface for your nightcap, as additional seating or footrests, or in this case, as storage. I found the best ones so you can keep all your cozy fall blankets organized, stored, and ready to snuggle up with.

I’ve had this storage coffee table from IKEA for years, and while it may look small, it’s surprisingly spacious. I keep two decorative cushions and three blankets stored in mine. It’s available in four colors to match any aesthetic, and the price is pretty unbeatable. The lightweight steel and open basket design also makes it easy to grip and move anywhere you want.

Having a small apartment typically means you have to prioritize function over style or even comfort, but with this upholstered storage ottoman, you can have it all. Its compact size can fit comfortably even in a studio apartment while also acting as a footrest and storage space for your fluffiest fall blanket. If you want a more sturdy surface area to place your move night snacks, simply flip the ottoman lid to reveal the wooden serving tray.

Clean lines and subtle arches make up the iconic mid-century modern aesthetic, so this coffee table is a perfect addition to that vibe. The fluted panel design is chic while the lift top with a spring system is functional for tossing in your fall blankets. It has two compartments so you can neatly fold blankets in each or separate them from cushion covers you like to rotate for the autumn season.
