Ottomans and poufs may be small, but they’re pretty mighty. Dare we say they’re the most versatile piece of decor you can own? These fun accent pieces are quite multi-functional and can even double as an extra seat, side table, footrest, and even storage for a small space.

Also, the range of styles can’t be beat. You can try a rectangular ottoman as a coffee table dupe, a circular one that doubles as seating at a vanity table, and some ottomans even have internal storage for linens or small items. Here are 10 do-it-all ottomans and poufs to add to your space.
