We're all in favor of a versatile piece of furniture, and that's exactly what an ottoman is. Whether used as a footrest, seat, or coffee table, ottomans are easy-to-move pieces that can shift around a room based on their purpose. And that's totally what you should be looking for when furnishing a small space. If we're getting technical here, "footstool" is actually an umbrella term for ottomans, hassocks, and poufs. While people may argue about the small technicalities between the terms, they all hold a similar purpose and will make such a beautiful addition to your space. From cozy poufs to folding stools to leather ottomans, here are 10 footstools that will make the most of your petite layout.
