I love almost any combination of blue and green so when I came across a teal blue storage ottoman, I was smitten. For the longest time there hasn't been a coffee table in my family room and I really miss having one. Having a piece of furniture that can serve more than one purpose, as a footstool and an extra space to keep certain odds and ends out of sight, as well as a unique looking coffee table seems like an excellent idea.
My favorite thing about a piece like this is that it is comfortable, functional and stylish. Kicking my feet up while reading a good book or watching an engrossing show is so relaxing. If I get cold I can reach inside of my footrest and grab a cozy blanket without missing a beat. And I don't know about you but when I have company over there is always a few things that I don't want in sight but I don't have a specific place to put them. Lastly, the color is simply divine and it can also double as a very hip looking coffee table. There is something both dignified and daring about using it in this way. Anyone who is interested in keeping a common space visually appealing, livable and "usable" will love it.
I scoured the net and a couple of my favorite stores over the course of several days, until I finally narrowed it down to my favorite five choices. I went through a lot of varying colors, sizes and shapes to get to this shortlist.
