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.
Curved ottomans are actually slightly out of fashion currently although they can still work extremely well in the right setting. Due to their shape, it's not advisable to combine rounded ottomans with linear furniture as this will create a slightly uncouth aesthetic. Instead, opt for a curved piece only in circumstances where you are working with a curvature as part of the existing look, either from the sofa or room itself. Ultimately, an ottoman has to accentuate the existing look by following pre-established design principles as otherwise you will find it will compete with other items of furniture, disrupting the interior look and feel.
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.
A black ottoman is often used as a footstool but it can also double up as a rather unique coffee table. Parents with young kids are often advised not to invest in a typical glass coffee table for obvious reasons. Also those wooden ones with the sharp corners can cause injury in your children and are often best avoided. An Ottoman on the other hand is soft and doesn't pose any risk to the child. Whether the child poses a risk to this piece of furniture is another story! At least the black color is less likely to show up stain damage than if it were cream or white.
