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.
Broadly speaking, ottomans are now primarily sold either as small cubes, curved tubs or rectangular full-size upholstered pieces. Over many years of development, these three styles appear to be the most popular with interior designs and the general public. Each size and style has its own unique place when it comes to positioning and placement in the modern day living room. Smaller ottomans tend to be used as substitutes for footstools room sets featuring multiple items. By contrast larger-sized ottomans fulfil a completely different function both as a centrepiece and substitute for the traditional coffee table.
While fabric furniture gives you looks, there are obvious advantages to leather ottomans as well. Leather is known for being stronger and more resistant to tearing or staining than fabrics. At the same time, leather has a soft, responsive quality that makes it an ideally comfortable covering for any kind of furniture. Leather ottoman sofa sets usually comes in dark colors of black, brown and red. They are chic and comfortable having the ability of transforming the overall presentation of the room. Living room ottomans also come as stand alone piece of furniture which is used as storage space by meticulous homemakers. Building on their reputation as footstools, ottomans can double as coffee tables, storage spaces and even fold-out beds.
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.
