Modern Ottomans from Room & Board

Once considered merely seating space for your feet, the modern ottoman has evolved into a multi-functional furniture piece now available in a wide variety of styles, shapes and upholstery options. From leather ottomans to modern benches with storage, Room & Board has many ottoman and footstool styles to choose from.

Flexible and functional, ottoman furniture can be configured to suit a multitude of spaces in addition to living rooms, including home offices, outside living areas, bedrooms and entryways. Before deciding on the perfect ottoman for your space, deciding how it will be utilized can help narrow down the wide variety of ottoman styles:

Classic Ottoman

This classic ottoman style, sometimes called a footstool, often features a cushioned surface, curved edges and a sturdy base with the occasional swivel. The perfect complements to our modern lounge chairs, Room & Board?s range of contemporary footrests are designed fully support your legs and feet and can serve as an extra seat.

Cocktail Ottomans

Also known as a coffee table ottoman, these flat-topped furniture pieces are ideal for entertaining, extra seating and displaying finishing touches to your home decor.

Storage Ottomans

Soft corners, clean lines and multiple sizes give our leather storage ottomans, upholstered footstools and bedroom storage benches a contemporary flair fit for any room and will help keep clutter cleverly hidden from view.


This ottoman style is exactly what it sounds like: a soft-sided footstool designed without a base. Similar to a beanbag or pouf with more internal structure, Room & Board cube ottomans make great footrests, provide versatile guest seating and are available in materials ranging from plush velvets to beautiful prints.

An ottoman?s shape also has a big impact on where and how it will work in your room:

Square ottomans are at home anywhere --they can be used as extra seating, occasional tables or just a comfortable place to prop your feet.

Rectangular ottomans provide a wider surface area, meaning more seating space for you and more room for your housewares tucked inside one of Room & Board?s versatile storage benches.

Ranging in size from small to sprawling, round ottomans make a statement in any space.
