The main purpose ottomans serve is for a place to put your feet up on when relaxing on a couch or sofa. They are alternatively used as a place to sit near a table if they have the proper weight rating and construction designed for this. Ottomans also are often used as a place for storage which makes them great for family rooms to store toys games movies DVDS etc. keeping your room tidy and organized. Some even have a removable top with a hard surface that can also serve as a surface to eat food on or play games. Simple ottomans are designed to be a decorative piece for any room and are generally used as a filler piece of furniture.
Many people who buy ottomans today look for ones with storage as well as trays. Storage functionality is an asset in compact living spaces. You can store anything from blankets magazines plates or any other items that you do not need lying around all the time. When I was living in a dorm I had an ottoman with 2 units. I used one storage cube to put my blanket and the other for books. It was very convenient. The use of the upside down cushion as a tray is invaluable. You can place your drinks food and coffee cups without having to use another tray. This comes very handy when watching football or basket ball games.
