A black ottoman is often used as a footstool but it can also double up as a rather unique coffee table. Parents with young kids are often advised not to invest in a typical glass coffee table for obvious reasons. Also those wooden ones with the sharp corners can cause injury in your children and are often best avoided. An Ottoman on the other hand is soft and doesn't pose any risk to the child. Whether the child poses a risk to this piece of furniture is another story! At least the black color is less likely to show up stain damage than if it were cream or white.
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.
Ottomans often come included as part of a furniture set and in such cases are intended to be used as a footrest. They will be made to match the other furniture and will sit well in the corner of the room or at the foot of your sofa or armchair. This is a great way to enhance the comfort and luxury of your living room and ensures a relaxing seating experience when unwinding with a book or to watch your favourite show. Most designer furniture suites will include an ottoman for this purpose.
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.
