Tufted Ottoman Coffee Table

I checked #10 off of my 30 before 30 list when I purchased a new coffee table/ottoman for our living room:



Here's a before photo of our old coffee table for comparison purposes:



The quality is great and the color is perfect!





It's almost identical to the color of our dining room chairs!



I really like it but I think it may be prettier than it is practical and I'm struggling with the idea of keeping it. I think I may just be reacting to the change of scenery and not to the actual ottoman though. Change is hard haha



Also, as much as I hate to admit this, we're eat-at-the-coffee-table-while-watching-TV people and we can't exactly do that with the new coffee table/ottoman due to its deep tufting. I knew that when I purchased it but I thought breaking our old habit would be easy. Not so much...



If we do keep it (odds are that we will), I'd like to replace the teeny tiny bun feet with something a little taller so the height of the table will be around 18" instead of the current 15".



Checking this off the list means our living room is "finished" (for now...) and I can turn my attention towards our dining room!



What do you think of our new coffee table/ottoman?

  1. I totally know where you're coming from with the coffee table to ottoman dilemma of eating in the living room. We have done pretty well with changing the habit, and truth be told, sometimes we still manage to eat just fine in the living room. I'm loving the eclectic vibe of the patterns, textures and styles you've mixed. I prefer the ottoman because it helps balance the room and the scale of it works for me. The round shape softens the space in comparison to the sharper angled furniture surrounding it. By the way, I have those Ikea chairs on my patio in black and I LOVE them. In other words, it's all good! I think it works. ;-)

  4. You should totally revamp a pair of old tv trays. I've been Dying to see someone redo those!

    Enjy your day!

  6. ughhhh I love it. It's gorgeous. I would add a little tray on top if you're missing a solid surface... and some tv trays to pull out for dinner. The shape is really nice in the room and the tutfs- THE TUFTS! :)

  8. It looks gorgeous but I've always wondered about the functionality of a soft coffee table. But it's so pretty that it just might be worth the inconvenience!

  9. I am a eat at the coffee table kinda girl so this would be tough for me but OH M GEE that is a thing of beauty! Maybe you can DIY a round table top to put on it when it's time to eat. I would use particle board so it isn't so heavy, you can even paint some cool graphic on it! Storing it would probably be the only issue but hey you'll get to keep the ottoman so really it's a win win lol

  10. I think the ottoman works perfect! I would recommend getting some tv trays like Brenda says above. We have a set of vintage ones that we use all the time and just use the ottoman to put our (shoeless) feet on. It's worked well!

  11. Now that is a beauty! And beauty is pain! Yes, the tufting/eating thing is probably an inconvenience but it looks so great! It adds a whole different tone to your living room. The mix is looking amazing.

  12. We are a couch eating family as well and we really like it that way. We have some really great quality time together around dinner making jokes while watching tv. It looks great though:) I love a good tuft ;)

  13. Perfect opportunity for DIY TV trays or a beautiful tray for the ottoman.

  14. love the scale and shape in their much more than the before and all you need is a tray to hold remotes, etc. and a towel under dinner plates to keep it clean. I raised three kids with white dining room chairs and no problems....amazing what a beach towel can do!

  15. Yay! You went round! It's gorgeous!

  16. I love it! I think it keeps the room going with the roundness- its not too harsh or anything. Maybe tv dinner tables? Do they make cute versions of those? I get you though. It's pathetic but we use our dining table literally like 3 times a year, when we have company. Maybe its a non parent thing? lol

  17. It's gorgeous, Caitlin. We occasionally like to eat in the family room too. I'm thinking about replacing our current coffee table for a fabric ottoman, but the thought of my kids spilling something on it makes me cringe. Good luck in your decision.

  23. I love your ottoman. Where is it from??? I'm visiting for the first time after a Christmas Decor Home Tour. Your decorations were so pretty!

  24. Beautiful piece. You can try and find a glass top same size as an ottoman it will solve your eating issue and of course as mentioned previously a beautiful scaled out tray for the eating.
