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.
One popular design allows the top section of the ottoman to lift up. The base or bottom section can be used for storage and it is frequently used for storing linen or towels, though you can use it for storing just about anything. Many people need a place to store extra old newspapers and magazines; an ottoman is great for that. Other parents with young children have used the space for storing toys and other items that their child plays with when they are in the living room. It is excellent for this type of storage, as it makes it very simple to pick up and put the toys away after the child is done playing.
It wasn't always this way, the original ottoman was nothing more than a simple bench piled high with cushions, an inexpensive yet robust alternative to the Sofa. Yet from humble beginnings, ottomans were reworked by French furniture designers and codified into a series of practical, versatile home accessories which double as storage, seating or side tables. Inherently versatile and immaculately styled, the original ottomans made waves in the world of interiors and were immediately adopted by the fashion-conscious public at the time.
However today coffee table has evolved into something that does more than just hold coffee cups, they are style statement in themselves and centre piece of our proud living rooms. Instead of a regular hard wood or glass table top table where you can just set things down, one may choose a totally different option- accent furniture crafted out of fabric, leather or faux leather, even microfiber.
