Ottoman footstools have a long established heritage in the field of interior design, stretching back through over four hundred years of design history. Originating from Turkish familial seating, the modern ottoman became a common furniture piece from the late 17th and early 18th centuries, as it quickly became popular in Paris and London. More recently, ottoman footstools have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity when paired with contemporary modern sofas, so just how did such a traditional and basic item of furniture become so influential in the field of interior design?.
Ottomans are used as footstools, extra seating or coffee tables. Some of the popular ottomans are leather cube ottomans, storage cocktail ottomans and upholstered ottomans and round ottomans. According to many scholars, an ottoman was the first ever-cushioned seat without back or arms, or a storage-box with a padded top. They are available in all sizes - starting from standard size to small and even to oversize and round. There are many types of round ottomans that might suit one's home and purpose, and give the room the charm one is looking for. To most people the most decorative and attractive ottomans are the round ones.
Buying an ottoman with some sort of storage space included is really a great idea as it gives you the opportunity to quickly tidy the room when guests unexpectedly arrive. It also provides you with space where odd items that do not really belong in any other area can be safely stowed until they are no longer needed. You can also designate drawers for storing keys, shoe polishing supplies or remote controls.
While fabric furniture gives you looks, there are obvious advantages to leather ottomans as well. Leather is known for being stronger and more resistant to tearing or staining than fabrics. At the same time, leather has a soft, responsive quality that makes it an ideally comfortable covering for any kind of furniture. Leather ottoman sofa sets usually comes in dark colors of black, brown and red. They are chic and comfortable having the ability of transforming the overall presentation of the room. Living room ottomans also come as stand alone piece of furniture which is used as storage space by meticulous homemakers. Building on their reputation as footstools, ottomans can double as coffee tables, storage spaces and even fold-out beds.
