A further way to add an ottoman to your room set is to substitute the piece for your existing side table or coffee table. To make the most of this style, opt for a large rectangular ottoman and place centrally as the centrepiece of a modular suite or corner unit. Not only does this style add a decorative edge to a classic look but it also provides for additional seating capacity for large, impromptu social gatherings. Typically, this style works well in more modern settings so do be cautious if you have a period property which may call for a traditional coffee table. If this is the case, you may wish to experiment with colours and materials opting for natural leathers or neutral, toned down fabric choices.
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.
Comfort is always at the forefront of the ottoman's design; with decadent layers of padding often included as standard. This makes them very comfortable to it on and convenient for use as additional seating when you have guests over. If you live in a particularly busy home with many guests in and out an ottoman can prove very useful for such purposes, and will significantly enhance the aesthetics of the room in the process.
Ottomans are a unique and luxurious asset to any home and can be the cherry on the cake of your home furnishing scheme. If you are considering buying an ottoman there are numerous different models to choose from and the upholstery possibilities are endless. Ottomans need not be bland or boring, as well as being fully customisable in a variety of colours and materials they can also be quite practical.
