Designer Advice:

With its large tabletop dimension, you can place items directly on top of this piece or put a tempered glass on top. When styling items directly, we recommend using a wooden tray for the majority of the vignette to protect the longevity of the woven material.

Buying Guide

The size of your rustic ottoman will mainly depend on that of your seating area. For the most balanced results, choose an ottoman that is:

  • Around half the length of your sofa, or you can always opt for two smaller ottomans instead
  • A depth that leaves you enough room to walk around it (deeper rustic ottomans work better in larger seating areas and rooms where space isn’t a problem)
  • At least one inch lower than your main chair or sofa, as you don’t want your feet to be too low nor higher than your legs when sitting down

Ottomans are much more versatile than people may think, and as well as being a decorative piece of furniture in a living room, they can also be used for extra seating. Supporting both the feet and legs, ottomans are built with strength in mind and are constructed with sturdy materials that allow people to sit on them comfortably.

They are extremely useful when you have guests over, and you run out of seating, or if you need to put your feet up after a long day at work. Rustic ottomans work beautifully with traditional or farmhouse interior design. Look for a model that matches the seat height of your sofa for a versatile piece that can be used as a seat, coffee table, or even pushed against the couch as a guest bed.
