With the small size of my apartment, storage is a big issue. So when I buy a new piece of furniture, I have to make sure it pulls double duty, not only doing the "thing" I bought it for but also hold stuff I put in there. Which is why I love this little gem here. Sure, it may look like a plain leather ottoman, but it's so much more. Can you guess what else this ottoman is used for?

Take a guess, then find out the answer when you read more.

It's called the Rock Box, and it's not only a place to put your drinks, your feet, and your computer when used as an ottoman or coffee table, but inside, it snugly stores all of your Rock Band or Guitar Hero World Tour equipment.


The drum kit, which is always a hassle to store, now lives inside (along with your guitar and mic), and neatly tucks back into the ottoman when you are done with your virtual jam session. Although $200 bucks may seem like a pretty penny to spend on such a thing, for me — and all you small space dwellers out there — you know that storage is priceless.
