A favorite of space-starved homeowners everywhere, the KIVIK ottoman comes with a large, built-in storage area concealed beneath its moveable seat. Here, you can stash things like accent pillows, out-of-season throw blankets, or the entertainment-center accessories you prefer to keep out of plain sight. The ottoman itself pulls double duty as either a sofa footstool or a comfy extra seat for the houseguest you weren't expecting. Indeed, there's a good reason why storage ottomans are a go-to in living rooms, bedrooms, and elsewhere—practicality! Available at IKEA; $199.
