That's Ottoman - a little different coffee table for you! Ottoman traditionally is defined as an upholstered seat without arms or a back, commonly they'd be paired with chairs to be used to put up feet and relax. The piece got its name from the ornate fabrics used to cover footstools that came from the Ottoman Turks in the 13th century. Victorians loved Turkish couches & used them as decorative & functional furniture pieces. Although ottomans have been used in the interiors for years, this often overlooked piece of furniture is now making a bold statement in the interiors.Today ottoman, once considered mere footrest has become an interesting piece of furniture- coffee table, extra seating, storage space all rolled in one.
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.
With round ottomans one can adorn all kinds of living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, dining rooms, home offices, and dens with furnishings. Round ottomans are mostly used as seating or for decorative purposes. Important components of the round ottomans are organic cotton (made with seedless and organically grown cotton), natural rubber (natural rubber components are dust mite repellents), and maple wood (dried maple is used and often the interior of wood is left unfinished).
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.
