Inspired in no small part by Apartment Therapy's current Perfect Workspace Contest, I am feeling a deep-seated need to organize, organize, organize. I've bought some additional file boxes for the office, and am looking for ways to hide more of our cords (keep an eye out for a post on that). But I'm also thinking about how we could add some storage to the office/guest room in a way that makes it look 1.) cuter, and 2.) more like a real room.
Current idea: the storage ottoman.
A storage ottoman could pose as a coffee table to accompany the daybed/guest bed, and hold bedding, pillows or miscellaneous office junk, while also offering additional, mobile seating for the rest of the place. But could it actually look good?
Inspiration for this particular piece of furniture/storage came from Young House Love, and their cute spare room.
A $40 approximation from Target... granted, I'm not generally that into wicker, rush or other grasslike furnishings
Shockingly, Ikea's only storage ottoman ($139)

Room and Board's $399 version
And their $499 ultrasuede version, which comes in lots of colors
