Storage Ottomans: Beyond the Basics

moose storage ottoman

You can find storage ottomans all over the place; they're at Target, Stacks and Stacks, classic furniture stores like Thomasville, and many other places. But here are some more unusual options.

How about a moose storage ottoman? There's also a black Lab version. Update on July 1, 2013: I'm no longer seeing the moose ottoman - or the black Lab one.

Not a moose kind of person? Here's a very different storage ottoman. Update on July 11, 2011: This ottoman comes from Anna Millea; sadly, I'm no longer finding her ottomans on the web.

Ballard Designs has one designed specifically for file storage; there are many fabric options. Ottomanopia also has a file storage option. Update on May 6, 2010: Ottomanopia seems to have disappeared.

And here's a storage ottoman designed to fit DVDs and other media. Update on July 1, 2013: I'm no longer finding this product.

Wow, Jeri, the only thing missing from this post on ottomans was Dick Van Dyke!

I always keep my eyes peeled for a good storage ottoman for our RV. Unfortunately, most are just a bit too big for the space I have. But these beauties inspire me to keep looking! Thanks.

Let me know what size you're looking for, Louise!

They can be made to your own specification - size, fabrics etc.

Thank you
