X-benches, ottomans, cubes, garden gnomes and client progress!

I think an ottoman/x-bench is a must for every family room.

They're functional because they add additional seating yet they don't take up much visual space. Also, they can be tucked under a console table.

Another bonus? They're loads of fun!! They can add...

Did you notice in the picture above how the benches stick out from under the console?
 I love the extra layer and dimension they add as long as it does not get in the way of a traffic pattern. May not work if you have kids that use open space as a race track followed quickly by a barking dog chasing them at top speed ( in other words ...my house!)
 
 Gnome he did-ent!
Ummm..... not a huge fan of garden gnomes but somehow this just works in Jonathan Adler's home
