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.
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.
Ottomans are a unique and luxurious asset to any home and can be the cherry on the cake of your home furnishing scheme. If you are considering buying an ottoman there are numerous different models to choose from and the upholstery possibilities are endless. Ottomans need not be bland or boring, as well as being fully customisable in a variety of colours and materials they can also be quite practical.
As you can see, there are many different ways that you can effectively use the extra space that an ottoman with storage room provides. They are also great in a bedroom, often seen at the foot of a bed, where they can keep extra blankets for those times when it suddenly gets cold at night. They are easy to get to and no fuss at all to use. Another design has drawers built into the ottoman. As these are usually fairly small they are used for storing smaller items. Popular uses for these drawers are for storing remote controls for blinds and equipment. It is helpful to have an area specifically designated for these items as that way everyone will always know where to locate them.
