The Ottoman Empire: Functional footrests perfect for a Hawaii home

Get expert tips for finding the perfect versatile ottoman for your space.

Ottomans add style — and versatility — to any living space. “I love ottomans because they’re multi-functional,” says Jillian Lepore of INspiration Interiors. “They make seating comfortable for anyone – no matter how tall or short. Plus, they accommodate a number of seating styles. From a design standpoint, they add a bit of spice.” 

Lepore says ottomans are ideal for Hawaii because they’re a great way to make the most out of tight spaces. “We are seeing fewer and fewer formal dining rooms,” she says. “So, a lot of times ottomans can act as an informal table for quick meals. Kids can also pull them up for video games and just hanging out.”
