I don't know if there's a better name/description for this footstool/ottoman that I picked up from a curbside trash pile probably a dozen years ago. Though filthy dirty at the time, it actually cleaned up well and ended up being perfectly intact. (but for a little normal wear on its bottom) :-)
I think these things were relatively common back around the 1970's or so, not only in orange but the then also oh-so-popular gold, brown, and olive green at least -- I definitely remember that one of my Grandmas had a green one in her living room when I was a child. It measures about 12" tall and 16" across, slightly padded with a pair of little 'handles' on each side and a couple of curved 'seams' as decoration to its top surface.
Now it sits in my own living room, making a nice compliment to a likewise 70's-ish orange/chrome side chair. [which I'm not sure I've shown here...if not, I should?!]
