The use of the upside down cushion as a tray is invaluable. You can place your drinks, food, and coffee cups without having to use another tray. This comes very handy when watching football or basket ball games. Ottomans of all types can be found online. There can be a great disparity in price for the same model made by the same manufacturer. Usually, you can find great deals at online retailers like Amazon.
Standard ottomans are basically footrests for an armchair or easy chair. That is all they are made to do. When some one says, Put your feet up and take a load off, they are really telling you to sit down in a comfortable chair, relax and rest your feet on the ottoman that is in front of the chair. Storage ottomans are just that: they are built for storage. The padded top is usually hinged and can open up to reveal an open space in heart of the ottoman in which people generally store blankets for use with the easy chair and ottoman.
For example, an ottoman can be used as a coffee table with a sofa bed, and also to store the bedding for when the sofa is needed as a bed. It can be used as a piano stool, storing sheet music and other items. They can be used in childrens rooms for toys, computer or video games and controllers, and in your bedroom as a handy seat for dressing while storing bedding, spare pillows or your nightclothes. These are just examples an ottoman can be used to store whatever you need it to.
