Ottoman footstools are exceptionally versatile pieces of the furniture which, while they originate from traditional Turkish furniture, are best known as home accessories which combined with sofas and armchairs create room sets for modern living rooms. With a range of styles and sizes available, it can be difficult to know where to start when adding an ottoman to your room so if you are unsure about how best to make the most of your new ottoman, here is a short style guide to get you thinking about the subject.
Ottoman coffee tables are ideal for pairing with any room seating since they are available in multiple shapes and sizes. There are traditional options that are longer, rectangular, round, square, they can be octagonal, triangular or free form. To suit contemporary living room interiors they are available in modern and sleek, clean symmetrical looks, while others that are very eccentric and have an art deco feel accentuate similar interiors. Then there are classical options that have a very delicate, antique appearance which very well go with ethnic or traditional style decor.
What is a living room without a coffee table? Evolution of coffee table started in Europe with the idea of a table specifically used for serving hot drinks or putting down one's cup between sips. The first wooden tables specifically designed and called tea tables, were made during the late Victorian era in Britain.
It wasn't always this way, the original ottoman was nothing more than a simple bench piled high with cushions, an inexpensive yet robust alternative to the Sofa. Yet from humble beginnings, ottomans were reworked by French furniture designers and codified into a series of practical, versatile home accessories which double as storage, seating or side tables. Inherently versatile and immaculately styled, the original ottomans made waves in the world of interiors and were immediately adopted by the fashion-conscious public at the time.
