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.
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.
Ottomans are used as footstools, extra seating or coffee tables. Some of the popular ottomans are leather cube ottomans, storage cocktail ottomans and upholstered ottomans and round ottomans. According to many scholars, an ottoman was the first ever-cushioned seat without back or arms, or a storage-box with a padded top. They are available in all sizes - starting from standard size to small and even to oversize and round. There are many types of round ottomans that might suit one's home and purpose, and give the room the charm one is looking for. To most people the most decorative and attractive ottomans are the round ones.
Buying an ottoman with some sort of storage space included is really a great idea as it gives you the opportunity to quickly tidy the room when guests unexpectedly arrive. It also provides you with space where odd items that do not really belong in any other area can be safely stowed until they are no longer needed. You can also designate drawers for storing keys, shoe polishing supplies or remote controls.
