I think one of the most pretty and useful things I’ve added to my home recently has been this ottoman from World Market! At first I was a little worried, thinking it might get ruined if anyone went near it. Surprisingly enough, it’s been so durable! We use it for feet, snacking, sitting and watching Downton Abbey on the laptop :). I pull it close to the fire and over by the sofa, it’s so flexible and handy! I do keep a tray on it though, just in case.
And, look at my cute kids playing cards on it. 🙂
