If you’ve ever had friends announce they were swinging by last minute and you’ve done the mad scramble to try and clean up everything lying around your lounge room, then this nifty piece of furniture is for you.
It’s a simple yet super clever storage footstool, available at everyone’s favourite bargain store Kmart.
And people are loving it.
From lego, to magazines, and throw rugs, it can hide it all.

Even dedicated Kmart enthusiasts have been sharing their ottoman love online.
Popular Instagram account The Kmart Lover has received “stacks of questions” about the ottoman after sharing an image on her account.
