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.
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.
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.
There are many different shapes and sizes of ottomans on the market these days. Usually covered with fabric and often sold as a piece of a sofa set, the ottoman is often used as a footstool or as a surface for placing books or other objects on. They definitely add to the decor of a room and are very handy when it comes to resting your feet after a long and tiring day, however they can also be extremely practical pieces of furniture as well, when it comes to providing extra storage. Ottoman trays are sometimes set on top of the ottoman, providing a more secure and stable surface for placing cups and glasses.
