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?.
Buying an ottoman with some sort of storage space included is really a great idea as it gives you the opportunity to quickly tidy the room when guests unexpectedly arrive. It also provides you with space where odd items that do not really belong in any other area can be safely stowed until they are no longer needed. You can also designate drawers for storing keys, shoe polishing supplies or remote controls.
Ottomans are used as footstools, extra seating or coffee tables. Some of the popular ottomans are leather cube ottomans, storage cocktail ottomans and upholstered ottomans and round ottomans. According to many scholars, an ottoman was the first ever-cushioned seat without back or arms, or a storage-box with a padded top. They are available in all sizes - starting from standard size to small and even to oversize and round. There are many types of round ottomans that might suit one's home and purpose, and give the room the charm one is looking for. To most people the most decorative and attractive ottomans are the round ones.
As you can see, there are many different ways that you can effectively use the extra space that an ottoman with storage room provides. They are also great in a bedroom, often seen at the foot of a bed, where they can keep extra blankets for those times when it suddenly gets cold at night. They are easy to get to and no fuss at all to use. Another design has drawers built into the ottoman. As these are usually fairly small they are used for storing smaller items. Popular uses for these drawers are for storing remote controls for blinds and equipment. It is helpful to have an area specifically designated for these items as that way everyone will always know where to locate them.
