Ottomans + Stools
An ottoman is to a chair or sofa what icing is to a cake. Sure, the cake is sweet, soft and delightful on its own, but icing elevates the entire creation into something special, something show stopping. Without an ottoman, your favorite armchair is just a little bit less comfortable, not quite as complete as it could be if you could kick up your feet while settling in for some time with a beloved movie or treasured novel. At west elm, our ottomans and stools provide the perfect complement for your favorite places to sit, helping to complete your seating arrangement and make your living room or bedroom reading nook a truly comfortable place to relax.
Available in a variety of different styles, from upholstered cubes to leather poufs, our ottomans and stools can pull double duty as a footrest or as additional seating when your place gets crowded. You can also use them as accent pieces or as an alternative to a coffee table for a more modern look. Once you’ve got your seating arrangement all picked out, don’t forget to add the final touch of decoration to your space with a beautiful area rug and some tasteful wall art. If you plan to use your ottoman in a reading nook, make sure you keep it well-lit with some of our wonderfully designed lighting options.
