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.
While fabric furniture gives you looks, there are obvious advantages to leather ottomans as well. Leather is known for being stronger and more resistant to tearing or staining than fabrics. At the same time, leather has a soft, responsive quality that makes it an ideally comfortable covering for any kind of furniture. Leather ottoman sofa sets usually comes in dark colors of black, brown and red. They are chic and comfortable having the ability of transforming the overall presentation of the room. Living room ottomans also come as stand alone piece of furniture which is used as storage space by meticulous homemakers. Building on their reputation as footstools, ottomans can double as coffee tables, storage spaces and even fold-out beds.
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.
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.
