Definition: Ottoman

Otherwise known as a footstool, an ottoman is a plush footrest that accompanies a couch or chair. Round or cube-shaped, this furniture is usually upholstered in fabric or leather and often overstuffed, like a backless armchair. Highly versatile, ottomans can easily serve as extra seating for guests. Some of them even have removable tops so they double as storage chests.

I love the idea of ottomons. They really are useful when you have so many people over.
