Over the years, the original innovations have become part and parcel of what we know as the modern day ottoman. In this respect it truly is a modern classic of the design world, because the very nature of the product has been defined by the original innovations upon the heritage piece. Over the years a number of manufacturers have sought to build upon these designs, adjusting size and functionality, fabric choices, detailing and technical specifications. One of the more popular modern styles is to use bright contemporary fabrics with a classic deep buttoned detail, blending the modern and the classic create a curious interplay in look and feel.
There are very few furniture pieces that can offer a place to sit, a place to kick your feet up and rest your legs or place to set a tray of drinks and snacks upon. As a matter of fact, there's really only one such versatile furnishing and that, is the ottoman. With so many uses, it's no wonder it can sometimes take quite a beating and begin to look old, weathered and ready to be put out to pasture (or into the nearest dumpster.) Since décor designers understand how much people love their favorite and most multi-purpose furnishing, cleverly (and thankfully) they came up with the ottoman slipcover.
Ottoman footstools are exceptionally versatile pieces of the furniture which, while they originate from traditional Turkish furniture, are best known as home accessories which combined with sofas and armchairs create room sets for modern living rooms. With a range of styles and sizes available, it can be difficult to know where to start when adding an ottoman to your room so if you are unsure about how best to make the most of your new ottoman, here is a short style guide to get you thinking about the subject.
Ottomans often come included as part of a furniture set and in such cases are intended to be used as a footrest. They will be made to match the other furniture and will sit well in the corner of the room or at the foot of your sofa or armchair. This is a great way to enhance the comfort and luxury of your living room and ensures a relaxing seating experience when unwinding with a book or to watch your favourite show. Most designer furniture suites will include an ottoman for this purpose.
