I love little ottomans like these because they fit in tight spaces and make for perfect extra seating in a pinch. We had a big family party at our house this weekend and the extra seats came in handy! I love that they look at home pretty much where ever they're sitting. So let's take a little trip with my new red stools and try them out all around my living room!
I love them as a pair in front of the fireplace (or how cute would they be in front of a bed?).
I like them layered in front of a side table too.
The interior storage compartment makes it easy to tuck in a couple of throws. You know, just in case you're a weirdo like me that can somehow manage to get cold even when it's 115 degrees outside.
I also like one of the stools tucked under our antique secretary desk. Isn't the poppy red color pretty with the blue velvet sofa?
It seems like a lot of people buy vintage or antique secretaries and don't know quite what to do with the desk areas. Do you keep a chair there all the time, etc.? I think a little stool or ottoman is the perfect way to keep a desk seat accessible without taking up a huge footprint in the room.
What's your favorite way to use little benches in your home? Have you found any Target treasures lately? Last weekend I scored a really great basket for one of my indoor trees and some cool hooks for a mudroom makeover that's coming your way later this week! :)
