Ottomans can also be adapted for use as a coffee table or storage unit. Typically coffee table ottomans are a little larger than standard ones and are covered with a sturdy material that is easy to clean such as leather or vinyl. Ottoman storage units come with hollowed out sections for you to store bits and pieces like magazines, TV remotes and smaller items that you don't want cluttering the place. These types of ottomans are ultra-convenient for those who struggle to maintain an orderly and tidy home but who do not wish to compromise on style in the process.
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.
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.
Over the years, the original innovations have become part and parcel of what we know as the modern day ottoman. In this respect it truly is a modern classic of the design world, because the very nature of the product has been defined by the original innovations upon the heritage piece. Over the years a number of manufacturers have sought to build upon these designs, adjusting size and functionality, fabric choices, detailing and technical specifications. One of the more popular modern styles is to use bright contemporary fabrics with a classic deep buttoned detail, blending the modern and the classic create a curious interplay in look and feel.
