NORWALK, OH – An ottoman or upholstered stool is like the little black dress of furniture. It becomes what you make it.

“An ottoman can function as seating one day, and a cocktail table the next. It offers aplace to prop your feet or perch your laptop,” says Reyna Moore, vice president of marketing and merchandising for Norwalk Furniture. “Some ottomans and stools even include storage options that add functionality to space-challenged spaces.”

Ottomans and stools also provide a pop of personal style. “Some furniture is designed to fade into the background, but an ottoman in an interesting fabric or an unexpected color can wake up a room,” Moore says. “Even a more subdued fabric or silhouette can be personalized with intriguing trim or nail heads.”
