When it comes to hiding clutter,
a lidded storage ottoman is a brilliant solution. In the living room, it can work as a coffee table or extra seating, all the while stashing throw blankets or kids' toys. Build one yourself and cover it in your choice of fabric, or check out a variety of attractive and affordable readymade options.
