If you’re lucky enough to own a vanity table, or like me, and live in an old apartment with one built-in, you know how many benefits there is with having a designed space to apply your makeup, style your hair, and store all of your favorite makeup, skincare and fragrances (not to mention put the prettiest ones out for display). Of course, if you do have a vanity table (a.k.a. dressing table), you definitely need a seating option if you plan to use it to get ready. While there are a number of chic stools and stylish chairs to accompany your table, vanity ottomans offer you a place to sit down comfortably, while also doubling as a stylish and space-saving storage option. So why not get the best of both worlds in one pretty home décor piece?
Whether you’re into a retro, vintage-inspired look (because, how glamorous, right?), or prefer a more minimalist look, there are plenty of vanity ottomans that not only look pretty in your space but also serve a much-needed purpose. The multi-purpose pieces are perfect for stowing away backups of your Holy Grail makeup products, and they also make a great house for your heat styling tools to rest. From luxe velvet options to mid-century modern designs, there’s a space-savvy vanity ottoman for every home décor style.
