Say what you like, but the Target ottoman is the essential item any interiors lover worth their salt should have — even if they live in tight quarters. Indeed, renters and dorm-dwellers should embrace the small furnishings that can take a sad studio from zero to hero in moments. Ottomans do just that. 

Target's ottomans are a great addition to any small space thanks to their size and the lack of DIY required. At present, there are 2,291 Target products listed under 'ottoman', so you have no excuse not to have a look — especially as I'm giving you a shortcut to the best dozen out there. 

Yep, I've scoured Target for all the best storage ottoman finery it has to offer, pinpointing a neat but chic selection spanning round ottomans, framed ottomans, cube ottomans, and even designer-style ottomans. Whether you use yours for relaxing after a long day or pure decoration, there's a design out there to tickle your fancy. Boho-chicers, quiet luxurians, or cozy girls, follow my lead.

If you're living that rental or college student life, you know that every small space storage buy counts. Indeed, with little real estate, more dainty decor can work wonders. The ottoman is a case in point and a tool I deployed throughout my not-so-distant days as a freshman. Tired of the dingy dorm rooms (and rentals I experienced later), I looked to ottomans as a prettifying solution, adding life where it was once sorely missing. As an interiors geek, I've tapped into the trendiest pieces out there, ticking off bouclé-style designs, woven numbers, and playful upholstery alike. If you still fancy taking a look for yourself, search ottomans on Target.

How we chose these Target ottomans

There's a lot — like *A LOT* — of ottomans out there to try. While we'd love to give every single one a try, there just aren't enough hours in the day to give you the lowdown you need. However, fortunately, Target is filled with incisive and honest product reviews, which I've spent hours examining in the hunt for furnishings shoppers actually find valuable. If it didn't earn at least four stars and/or some kind words from shoppers, then it won't be above. Teamed with my on-the-button knowledge of interior and broader cultural trends, it's led me to this delightful dozen. You can thank me later.
