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.
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.
Ottoman frames appear in eye-catching shapes and designs like rectangular, square and round. Ottoman upholsters are available in colorful leathers, fabrics and patterns. There are different kinds of materials used for ottoman sofa set to suit any kind of interiors. If your living room already features fabric furniture, then fabricated ottomans can only add to the beauty. They give a homely feel and create a sense of softness as the fabric used is smooth giving it an ethnic look.
However today coffee table has evolved into something that does more than just hold coffee cups, they are style statement in themselves and centre piece of our proud living rooms. Instead of a regular hard wood or glass table top table where you can just set things down, one may choose a totally different option- accent furniture crafted out of fabric, leather or faux leather, even microfiber.
