Move over, coffee table! There's a new centerpiece for the living room: The tufted ottoman. Here are a few reasons why it deserves to be the center of attention:

The elegant Nancy Tufted Ottoman is a show-stopper and can be found at Horchow for $729 (plus $75 shipping). Thankfully, features a nearly identical piece for much less (it is slightly taller): The Button Tufted Upholstered Ottoman in quartz is $329.99. Target is currently offering 15% off when you spend $125.00 or more, so that takes the price down to $280.49 plus $29.99 shipping for a total of $310.48. That’s a savings of $493.52, or 61%!

Inside Avenue features this Round Tufted Ottoman with Caster Legs, and although it is stylish and sensible (thanks to those wheels) it is also non-refundable. It is custom-made (a fabric choice must be specified when ordering this piece) and that makes returns impossible. It also comes at a price of $1,250.00 (but there is free shipping). has a perfectly suitable knockoff with this Florence Beige Tufted Round Ottoman. It is slightly smaller than the spendier option, but more affordable at $278.09 (with a promotional offer of free shipping). That’s a savings of $971.91, or 78%.

Classic, go-with-anything style is found in Haverty's Radford Cocktail Ottoman. The smooth, barely-tufted leather surface is surrounded by two rows of nailheads. But with a sale price of $649.99 and $119.99 shipping, it's worth looking around for an alternative. Wayfair is the site to go for this knockoff. The Soho Tufted Square Nailhead Trim Ottoman has all the same features as the Haverty's version but with one less row of nailhead trim. The price is a knockout at just $349 with free shipping, saving  $420.98, or 55%.

Small-but-stunning is the focus of this ottoman found at Inside Avenue. The Kristoff Black Ottoman is smaller (16"x16"x17"), so it is priced at $450 for two (plus free shipping). A similar look can be found at for less. The Black Leather-Look Ottoman is slightly larger at 18"x17"x17", and the pieces can be purchased individually for $75.49 and free shipping. The cost for two is $150.98, but that price is $299.02 less than the Kristoff duo and a savings of 66%.
