Round ottoman with storage is a great addition to virtually any space, as it can be so versatile, that it is a one minute chair, and a table the next. To make the most of your ottoman, do not forget to customize it-just be sure to follow these suggestions. Add a large tray. If your ottoman works primarily as a coffee table, you’re going to want a solid surface on which to set that coffee. Place a large, heavy tray on the ottoman, preferably one with edge trim handles and high enough so that nothing can roll off the tray..
