When considering what type of ottoman best suits your interior scheme decide how you will want to use it first. Will you want to keep your feet up on it for example or use it solely for decorative purposes? Perhaps you will use it as an additional seat for guests or to store things on. Whatever you decide, it's important that you choose an ottoman with the right materials and features for your specific needs.
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.
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?.
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.
