Obviously an Ottoman should not be used as a coffee table without utilizing a serving tray on top as soft material and hot liquid drinks do not make a good combination. The answer is simple. Use a serving tray when you have guests and need a place to serve refreshments. Obviously be careful if you do have young children as the hot drinks will be at their height level. The more common uses of an ottoman are as a footstool or if large enough, a day bed but sometimes they will double up as a seat. If you have more guests than chairs, I am sure younger people won't mind using it as something to sit on. It won't be comfortable for long periods of time as it doesn't have the back support but it will do in an emergency.
Comfort is always at the forefront of the ottoman's design; with decadent layers of padding often included as standard. This makes them very comfortable to it on and convenient for use as additional seating when you have guests over. If you live in a particularly busy home with many guests in and out an ottoman can prove very useful for such purposes, and will significantly enhance the aesthetics of the room in the process.
If you want to furnish and decorate your living room in a unique way, then ottoman coffee tables are perfect answer. Also it can add an accent color into the room. Best of all, ottomans may also provide extra storage space with built-in cabinets. With such diversity in designs, sizes, upholstery & function, ottomans can be used in just about any room of the house.
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.
