These are the reasons behind the increasing popularity of compact furniture like ottomans. Not only they are compact but they are also multifunctional. When you buy an ottoman it can be used as a storage place a foot stool a seat a coffee table as well as a tray. In the absence of arm rests or backs like in sofas they are relatively lightweight and therefore easy to move. Ottomans are perfect for dorm rooms small apartments condominiums and small homes.
