For many people, the classic ottoman style is the cube, a luxurious but discreet item which can be placed in free space close to large items of furniture such as coffee tables or sofas. While cubes often work best in more traditional settings, a number of more modern styles are increasingly popular which can work well when paired with contemporary furniture. For this type of look, search for cubes covered in bright, vibrant fabrics as opposed to natural leathers as this will add a modern touch to your home décor, accentuating the contemporary look. One particularly popular style at present is to combine such colours with a traditional deep buttoned finish, highlighting an interplay between the traditional and the contemporary which is especially striking in a modern setting.
There are many different shapes and sizes of ottomans on the market these days. Usually covered with fabric and often sold as a piece of a sofa set, the ottoman is often used as a footstool or as a surface for placing books or other objects on. They definitely add to the decor of a room and are very handy when it comes to resting your feet after a long and tiring day, however they can also be extremely practical pieces of furniture as well, when it comes to providing extra storage. Ottoman trays are sometimes set on top of the ottoman, providing a more secure and stable surface for placing cups and glasses.
The stretch ottoman slipcover is available in a wide variety of stretch fabrics that include but are not limited to chenille, micro-fiber, weaved canvas, suede and faux suede and linen. Like their name implies, these covers simply stretch over the top and sides of the ottoman. They're either pulled down to the bottom or feature a snug fitting pull down top cover with a wrap around stretch skirt that tightly fits around the ottoman for a snug fit the whole way. They're available in sizes from small which fits 80-110 inches, medium which will fit 90-130 inches and large which is made to fit 105-140 inches.
Ottomans can also provide much needed additional seating for your children. Because they are smaller than a standard armchair or sofa they can fit perfectly in a child's room and most children will love sitting on them. You can brighten up the colours of your ottoman by purchasing separate loose covers or simply request them to be upholstered in specific child-friendly colours and materials to match their bedrooms. It's worth also choosing a material that is easy to wash if you are buying an ottoman for your child!
