Using the exterior design of an item such as a footstool or ottoman, these hollowed out pieces provide a great place to store both dirty and clean laundry at the times when you are not utilizing them. These hampers are a great way to compliment your existing furniture sets, such as your bedroom or living room furniture. A very popular use of the smaller laundry hampers is as a magazine bin in the living room or sitting room of the house.
