Earlier this year, I set out a list of Office Essentials and whilst I may have eluded to the use of ottomans, I think it worthy of highlighting the use of a pair specifically up agaginst the end of the office desk. They are so useful in that when there are no visitors they serve the same function as shelves/coffee tables but can quickly become easy seating for two without visually taking up space.

PS. How cool is this dining room table painted in artwork!
