One of the most versatile pieces of furniture you can have in your home is an ottoman. Nothing comes in more shapes and sizes or more colors and patterns. No matter where you place them, ottomans are always adaptable to the function of the space, and they also happen to be the easiest way to add a touch of fun to the nursery.
The traditional round ottoman can be updated and re-dressed with a pleated skirt. Keep the fabric solid and let the details shine.

An X-bench is a sophisticated update to any room. Traditional in shape, it can be transformed with stripes, detailed patterns or even simple neutrals. The X-bench can also easily transition into more grown-up spaces like the end of the bed, under a console or by a fireplace.
