Ottomans aren’t generally thought of as cutting-edge pieces of furniture, nor are they particularly cool to look at.  More functional than fashionable, they’ve long served a purpose in that they’re there to serve the specific duty of giving us a place to kick up our feet and relax.  Today’s roundup, though, unearths some inventive and even cool ottomans that liven up a space a little with cool, unexpected colors, shapes and finishes.  Here, utility doesn’t come only at the expense of style.  So put your dogs up and enjoy today’s images of literal laid-back weekend relaxation.
