OK, so this square ottoman might not have the internal storage space of some of the others below, but the Aztec-inspired print (and price) are too good to pass up. For around $100, you're getting extra seating at a perfect height. Plus, when you don't have friends around, it's a great place to store clothing. Beats a "floordrobe" any day if you ask me! The black legs give it such a luxe modern industrial feel, too.

I must have been a magpie in a past life because anything gold and I'm sold! The black storage ottoman would look so chic in a bedroom, and if you share the space with your BF — an Art Deco design is one way to sneak in some elegant features without any dizzying florals in sight. The tufted Chesterfield-style top ticks all the boxes for a modern traditional touch.

Last call for destination tidy! This made-to-order suitcase-style storage bench ottoman is the perfect pick for wanderlusters who want to hint at their love of travel.

Not every storage bench needs to come with a flip lid. If you're looking for a slim seat that serves as small space shoe storage, then (quite literally) walk this way.

And, if you do have a tiny hall, it'll provide ample space to store shoes without tripping over them.

Girl... I know what you're thinking already. $500! Which is why we've left this one for last. But trust me, the large storage ottoman will continue to serve year after year. I love how Latitude Run has used a basket-weave design and given it a modern twist. Use it as a dressing bench, or let it take center stage in the middle of your living room.
