Cube Ottomans Sit Squarely in Design

An accent table, extra seating, additional storage … a cube ottoman is one of these furniture pieces you can’t go wrong with. They function well in tight spaces, can easily be moved around, create good additional seating and can incorporate storage. Some smart cubes have shirts that may flip over to some menu also.

When it comes to design, there’s no end to the fun you’ll have with these pieces. Because they are so small, it’s easy to get away with bold prints and intriguing materials.

Scroll down to have a peek at some fantastic cube ottomans and the best strategies to utilize them.

Garnet Hill

Beaton Cube Ottoman – Garnet Hill – $280

These cubes have a punchy clover picture that I’ve been seeing a lot of this year. They can bring beautiful colour to any room that feels overly bland.


I adore the idea of using cubes at the end of an office desk. Not only is this great seating for people, but you are able to pull them under the desk and put your feet up. Use a bold pattern to get a cheerful office pick-me-up.

The Couture Rooms

Tuck one or more cubes under a foyer table for an easy entryway solution. Nestle one under a bathroom vanity and pull it out to sit and apply your make-up.

Seagrass Cube – $98

Natural substances are still all of the rage in home decoration. This cube has a natural feel that’s ideal for any relaxing space. And it’s affordable enough to purchase several and group them together as additional chairs or facing a mattress.

Amoroso Design

If you’ve got a daring rug into your living room, consider placing a cube ottoman in a natural finish on top. A neutral tone will not upstage the rug or confuse the eye using more colour.

Amy Lau Design

Skip the upholstery and bring into a much more natural vibe into a bedroom. Bunch up a couple of cubes in a organic material at the base of your bed to include intriguing architectural detail.

Marie Burgos Design

Small room? Choose cubes that have storage, and then have them serve double duty for a coffee table. You’ll have a tabletop that can move around easily and a concealed place to store your essentials.

Beckwith Interiors

Cube ottomans are great in front of a fireplace for cozy winter nights. Instead of adding colour, choose one with fun feel. I dig the funky material on these.

Puffball Pouf – $198

This cube is unique, fabulous and comfortable. It would be ideal for any child’s space.

Try matching two cubes in the living area. Put a tray on one and keep another one free for resting feet on. Consider using two separate patterned pieces that coordinate through colour.

If you’ve got a nice, big space in the middle of your room, fill it by grouping four cube ottomans together. You may split them apart for seating.

Robeson Design

Nowadays you can find coffee tables that include fitting cubed ottomans to match under the table. The tops of these cubes look as though they flip over to become tray tables, making them more versatile.

Z Gallerie

Storage Ottoman, Chevron – $249

This is one of those memorable pieces that has everything — it’s modern, with nail heads and a bold black and white chevron pattern. Look for eye-catching cubes similar to you to pump the volume up in a living room.

Jim Tetro

Use cubes around a 30-inch table similar to this one to make a little table. Look for people with storage to hide your matches in, and try placing the cubes on castors to wheel them around to other rooms when they are not used as seating.
