Ottomans are a unique and luxurious asset to any home and can be the cherry on the cake of your home furnishing scheme. If you are considering buying an ottoman there are numerous different models to choose from and the upholstery possibilities are endless. Ottomans need not be bland or boring, as well as being fully customisable in a variety of colours and materials they can also be quite practical.
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.
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.
With round ottomans one can adorn all kinds of living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, dining rooms, home offices, and dens with furnishings. Round ottomans are mostly used as seating or for decorative purposes. Important components of the round ottomans are organic cotton (made with seedless and organically grown cotton), natural rubber (natural rubber components are dust mite repellents), and maple wood (dried maple is used and often the interior of wood is left unfinished).
