Ottomans + Stools

west elm’s collection of stylish, modern ottomans and stools give you the ideal balance of form and function. These compact furniture pieces are suitable for propping up your feet, giving overflow guests a seat and even displaying decorative objects or books. While they’re ideal for use in the living room, our ottomans and stools are versatile enough to fit in just about anywhere in your home. If you have a need for extra seating or low-profile display, you may just find exactly what you’re looking for in this section. We offer ottomans and stools in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles, so you’ll have plenty of options to consider as you browse through our collection and narrow down your favorites to the final perfect pick.


Our ottomans and stools make excellent companions for living room seating pieces such as sofas and chairs. You and your guests can use these short and stout pieces to kick up your feet as you enjoy good conversation and exciting movies or TV shows while relaxing. If your living space is on the petite side, it can be helpful to have a stool or ottoman on hand for those moments when your small seating arrangement doesn’t have the capacity to handle all the guests in your home. In those cases, you can simply move your ottoman away from its normal companion sofa or chair and put it on the other side of the coffee table to create a more intimate and complete seating arrangement.


Whether your living space is small or large, the seating function of the furniture pieces in this category can make itself useful throughout the house. Anyplace where you can think of that you might appreciate a little extra room to relax, stools and ottomans can come in handy. They make a great alternative to benches for entryways and mudrooms - if you don’t need the full length of a bench, a stool can make a much more efficient choice for using the space in your home in the best possible way. Leaving the extra room a bench would occupy can give you the space to introduce additional storage pieces such as a coat stand or shoe rack.


Our collection of benches and stools covers a wide range of different aesthetic preferences, so even the most stylish individuals can find something that will work well in their homes. With options including eye-catching textures and sculptural forms, you can choose a stylish option that serves as a decorative accent piece in your home. If you love to hunt for pieces that make a quirky or unusual statement, you can find plenty of suitable choices in this section.


There's a practical side to these furniture pieces, of course, and we've captured that characteristic by offering stools and ottomans in a variety of different height profiles. Whether you want something low to the ground for an unusual living room seating arrangement or you're looking for a taller style to serve as end-of-bed seating in your master bedroom, you can browse through our current collection to see what best aligns with your needs. You're likely to find several different stools and ottomans that fit within your functional parameters, leaving style alone as the final deciding criterion. Dive in and see what we have for you in this section. Your perfect match is waiting to come home with you and add another dimension of elegance to your space.
