These ottoman furniture are perfect for people who are looking for multi-functional furniture that not only saves space, but also give great value for the money spent.
Homelegance is our top choice and recommendation, which you can find on amazon com. Compared with the other ottomans, it's affordable and is fairly simple to setup and use.

Not only can this ottoman turn into a chair, but it has a storage piece which you can use to put away stuff in.
This ottoman will fit perfectly well in the corridor or the living room where you might need to put away video games, magazines, or things that you might need when you go in and out of the house.
Simply lift up the top piece and you can access to the storage area. If you feel like sitting down and resting your back, lock it in place and enjoy! When you are done, just make sure to fold it back down and it will return back to bench.
The polyester fabric will last you quite a long time, since polyester is resistant to wrinkles and shrinking. If you somehow get it wet, do not worry as polyester dries fairly quickly and do not absorb as much as odor as cotton or other types of fabric.
Powell Marnie is the runner up recommendation. While it is slightly more expensive than Homelegance, it's wider, sturdier, and can actually convert into an ottoman bed.
42 length x 31 w x 18 height inches
18 inches folded, 33 inches unfolded
42 inches folded, ~75 inches unfolded
+$59 if you want expert assembly
Being 31 inches wide, you have plenty of room to move around. And if you want, you can extend it into a bed. It's perfect for taking a quick nap, or if you need an extra place for guests to sleep.
When you are done using it, you can fold it back into place within a few seconds.
It's comparably light, only 30 lbs, and comes with 4 rollers, so you can move around your house to where it may be needed.
If you want to take it with you on a road trip, it can fit nicely in an RV, so you don't necessarily have to spend extra money installing a sofa in your RV.
The only downside of the Powell Marnie is color selection. You can't find other colors besides gray, so you are limited to only one option.
If you're looking for a bargain, then Cynefin is something that you should consider. They give you 2 free lumbar pillows and 3 side pockets for storing items.
40. 8 length x 26.3 w x 16.4 height inches
18 inches folded, 27.6 inches unfolded
40.8 inches folded, 70.8 inches unfolded
Similar to Powell Marnie, Cynefin also has the functionality to extend into a bed, but because it's a little smaller in comparison and a bit cheaper, the craftsmanship is not on the same level.
However, it does provide great value for the money spent. You get 2 FREE lumbar pillows, and it comes with 3 side pockets that make it easier to store phones, magazines, chargers, etc.
The downside is the weight. Although it's smaller than Powell Marnie, being 75 pounds, you will need someone else to help you move around the furniture, so make sure to get some help.
Zenosyne is practically the same as Cynefin with a few differences. The fabric is linen and it's almost 10 pounds lighter.
40. 8 length x 26.3 depth x 16.4 height inches
16.4 inches folded, 27.6 inches unfolded
40.8 inches folded, 70.1 inches unfolded
Linen fabric means that it won't get odorous as much as linen is breathable and doesn't retain moisture as much compared to other fabrics.
You get a FREE lumbar pillow (YEYE!!), 3 extra (total 6) side pockets, and it can hold slightly more weight than Cynefin.
While moving it around will still be a bit difficult and you may need help; nonetheless it's almost 10 pounds lighter.
Other than that, the dimensions and functionality are nearly identical, so between Cynefin and Zynosyne, you can't really go wrong with either one of them.
While these are slightly different from what you are looking for, here are some other suggestions and selections that might be of interest.

What Does "4 in 1, etc" Mean?
It lets you know how many functions it has. Some companies and brands have the number of functionalities highlighted in their product title, whereas some don't.
More does not necessarily mean better because it's all about your needs. Even if a product has more ways of being used, the quality and craftsmanship might be less, it may be more expensive, and it may be less sturdier than a simpler furniture.
Lighter colors: Lighter colors usually work best with other lighter colors and neutral colors.
For example: If your room is ivory white and beige, it's better to get a furniture piece that's has a similar color palette to the room such as light brown, or tobacco.
Heavy colors such as red, blue, black can be mixed in, but use with caution because too much bright and heavy colors can be overwhelming.
Neutral colors: If you want, you can go with neutral colors such as gray, light blue, etc, but unless you mix in some darker or brighter colored objects, it can seem a little dull or boring.
If your room is neutral in overall color scheme, your furniture piece should have a more striking color and appearance.
Darker colors: Dark colors such as black, navy blue, and dark brown etc are very difficult to decorate with. You need a good balance. If it's too much, it can look gloomy, dark, uninviting.
You need furniture pieces that contrast the overall dark look of the room. So if you walls are black or dark gray, get some furniture that is light gray, white, etc.
