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.
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.
There are very few furniture pieces that can offer a place to sit, a place to kick your feet up and rest your legs or place to set a tray of drinks and snacks upon. As a matter of fact, there's really only one such versatile furnishing and that, is the ottoman. With so many uses, it's no wonder it can sometimes take quite a beating and begin to look old, weathered and ready to be put out to pasture (or into the nearest dumpster.) Since décor designers understand how much people love their favorite and most multi-purpose furnishing, cleverly (and thankfully) they came up with the ottoman slipcover.
Ottoman footstools have a long established heritage in the field of interior design, stretching back through over four hundred years of design history. Originating from Turkish familial seating, the modern ottoman became a common furniture piece from the late 17th and early 18th centuries, as it quickly became popular in Paris and London. More recently, ottoman footstools have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity when paired with contemporary modern sofas, so just how did such a traditional and basic item of furniture become so influential in the field of interior design?.
