All About the Ottoman

Interior Designer, and Elizabeth’s mom, Susie Ries of Susie Ries Interiors, stopped by with a guide on styling your living room with the ottoman, what she calls the most versatile piece of furniture in the home.

The large ottomans Susie featured are available at Slumberland Furniture.

Susie’s tips:

  • Have your ottoman 18″ away from the edge of the sofa or chairs.
  • If you purchase small ottomans, make sure they’re at least 19″ high. That way, they can double as dining room chairs, which happen to be 19″.
  • Use an ottoman for extra seating in a living area or put one by a front or back door for a drop zone.
