Slipcovers for ottomans are available in several different styles that help homeowners choose the right one to blend in cohesively with their existing décor as well as properly fit their ottoman shape and size. Another variation on ottoman slipcovers is the fabric from which they are made. Because of their varying size differences, many ottoman slipcovers are somewhat adjustable to assure a proper fit whether they're stretched over the ottoman much like a sock over a foot or strategically tied at each corner much like a bed skirt.
When we generally think of ottoman they are nothing but a low, rectangular footrest, usually upholstered accompanying an accent chair. They are used as footrest and are perfect for comfortable seating. However ottomans have outgrown its role and we now see them along with sofa sets adding new features of extra seating or an occasional table. They come is different sizes and shapes and are much higher than the footrest. Ottoman involves a combination of shape, style and function. They are padded, upholstered low-rise bench with no armrests or back supports.
The stretch ottoman slipcover is available in a wide variety of stretch fabrics that include but are not limited to chenille, micro-fiber, weaved canvas, suede and faux suede and linen. Like their name implies, these covers simply stretch over the top and sides of the ottoman. They're either pulled down to the bottom or feature a snug fitting pull down top cover with a wrap around stretch skirt that tightly fits around the ottoman for a snug fit the whole way. They're available in sizes from small which fits 80-110 inches, medium which will fit 90-130 inches and large which is made to fit 105-140 inches.
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.
