Multi-purpose, multi-functioning furniture and home decor can save you some serious cash. And if you have a small home or apartment, it can be a wonderful space-saving solution. Why buy just an ottoman or just a coffee table, when you can have both? Many ottoman coffee tables even include storage options that can function as clutter hiders (“Quick, Grandma’s on her way!”), basket holders (Hello, toys and magazines!) or beautiful shelving for displaying your favorite treasures.
Below are ten of our favorite options from French country to the mid-century modern, farmhouse to industrial, you’ll be sure to find one that fits your home and lifestyle.

Ottoman Coffee Table FAQs
Have some concerns before you figure out which ottoman coffee table will work for you? Check out our buying tips and answers to commonly asked questions.
Where Will It Live?
Before you commit to an ottoman coffee table, ask yourself: Where will it live? Are you thinking of putting it in a formal living room? An informal family room? A playroom? Office? Den? Parlor? Does anyone even have a parlor anymore?
Think about the space, the size, the style, and the shape before falling in love with something that just won’t fit.
Material and Finish
Material and finish are a huge part of home decor. Not only do you want your ottoman coffee table to fit your aesthetic, but you also want it to fit your lifestyle.
For example, if you have kiddos, you will definitely want to consider the cleaning aspect. Upholstery is a wonderful way to avoid injuries from sharp corners, but it’s not nearly as easy to clean as faux leather. However, there are upholstery protectors, sealers, and cleaners out there, so if upholstery is where your heart is, then go for it — just be prepared.
Do You Need Extra Storage?
Unless you are a minimalist or have a ginormous house with a place for everything, then you probably could always use the extra storage. That being said, do you want your ottoman coffee table to have interior storage? If so, are hydraulic hinges important to you and your family?
Or perhaps you are looking for a place for baskets or a simple shelf that you can decorate each season? Maybe you don’t need the extra storage at all and you want this piece to serve solely as extra seating? Figure out the storage issue and proceed accordingly.
Is DIY your thing? Or do you not have a handy bone in your body? Do you want to tackle assembling your new ottoman coffee table, or do you just want it to come fully assembled and ready to enjoy? Either way, be sure to grab the magazines or cocktails so you can sit back and relax once it is all put together.
Before you invest, ask yourself all of these questions. That way, you’ll be confident when you place your order.
