Ottomans & Benches

Perhaps your living room just feels like it’s missing something special, or you’re looking to add some additional luxury and comfort to your bedroom. Williams-Sonoma Home’s ottomans, benches and stools may be the ideal missing pieces to complete your home decor puzzle in any room. From providing an extra seat for large social gatherings to giving you a place to prop up your feet after a long, fulfilling day, these seemingly humble furniture pieces actually add a lot of style and convenience to your home. Our collection of ottomans, benches and stools uses luxe design principles with features such as tufting and nailhead detailing to give simple furniture pieces an extra decorative boost.


Use our ottomans, benches and stools wherever you have a need for casual seating, such as in your home’s entryway or in front of a particularly scenic picture window. You can also pair them with more elaborate seating arrangements, placing ottomans in front of sofas to provide additional comfort for houseguests and family members. Many of our ottomans, benches and stools pair seamlessly with other pieces from our furniture collections, giving you a clean, coordinated seating solution with matching color, fabric and form. Any one of these pieces does well on its own too thanks to our careful design and quality construction.


You don’t have to use these ottomans, benches and stools exclusively as seats or footrests. These versatile pieces, particularly the ottomans, can double as coffee or console tables in your living room. Some of our ottomans even have coffee table-like design features, such as lower shelves, making them ultra-convenient for storage and display. Luxurious tufted tops invite guests to have a seat or put up their feet, and the lower shelving gives you space to store TV remotes and coffee table books. Use a tray on top of the ottoman to provide a flat surface upon which to set down drinks and snacks.


We offer both modern and traditional ottomans, benches and stools in this collection, so you’re sure to find several options that suit your style, no matter which approach you prefer. Our modern styles use clean lines and metallic accents for a slight industrial influence. The contrast between gleaming metal legs and soft upholstery makes these modern pieces extra inviting. Our traditional styles feature turned legs and nailhead trim to capture that classic aesthetic. Turned wooden legs aren’t quite as eye-catching as a shiny metallic leg, but they have their own subtle elegance that looks fantastic in situ.


You’ll find great uses for these furniture pieces throughout your home. Our benches and stools are particularly suitable for bedroom use. Put a luxe tufted bench at the end of your bed, or use stools as bedside stables for a low-lying platform bed. You can use an ottoman or a stool in your walk-in closet to provide easy seating and an extra element of glamour. The modern metallic leg styles we offer can look quite glamorous and are suitable for inclusion in a sumptuous boudoir with rich fabrics and textures throughout.


Our ottomans, benches and stools come in a wide range of fabric options for you to consider. From genuine animal hides to sturdy linen, you have the power to choose the right texture and color for your space. Prints and solids alike are on offer in this category, and you’ll find leather options in a variety of different shades as well. Mix and match elements to find the right balance for your needs. Whether you opt for a white leather tufted stool with shiny metal legs or a bench with cotton canvas upholstery and lovely wooden legs, our ottomans, benches and stools are sure to look fantastic in your home.
