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.
The tab tie ottoman slipcovers are also available in various fabrics and are somewhat adjustable. They feature instructions on how to properly fold the corners and sides in so that once tied, there's a perfect fit. These tie covers are a more formal or more "shabby chic" look depending on material and fabric pattern. They're lovely in any room of the house and can really transform an old torn up ottoman into a brand new one for very little investment.
Ottoman footstools have a long established heritage in the field of interior design, stretching back through over four hundred years of design history. Originating from Turkish familial seating, the modern ottoman became a common furniture piece from the late 17th and early 18th centuries, as it quickly became popular in Paris and London. More recently, ottoman footstools have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity when paired with contemporary modern sofas, so just how did such a traditional and basic item of furniture become so influential in the field of interior design?.
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.
