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.
Obviously an Ottoman should not be used as a coffee table without utilizing a serving tray on top as soft material and hot liquid drinks do not make a good combination. The answer is simple. Use a serving tray when you have guests and need a place to serve refreshments. Obviously be careful if you do have young children as the hot drinks will be at their height level. The more common uses of an ottoman are as a footstool or if large enough, a day bed but sometimes they will double up as a seat. If you have more guests than chairs, I am sure younger people won't mind using it as something to sit on. It won't be comfortable for long periods of time as it doesn't have the back support but it will do in an emergency.
One popular design allows the top section of the ottoman to lift up. The base or bottom section can be used for storage and it is frequently used for storing linen or towels, though you can use it for storing just about anything. Many people need a place to store extra old newspapers and magazines; an ottoman is great for that. Other parents with young children have used the space for storing toys and other items that their child plays with when they are in the living room. It is excellent for this type of storage, as it makes it very simple to pick up and put the toys away after the child is done playing.
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).
