When considering what type of ottoman best suits your interior scheme decide how you will want to use it first. Will you want to keep your feet up on it for example or use it solely for decorative purposes? Perhaps you will use it as an additional seat for guests or to store things on. Whatever you decide, it's important that you choose an ottoman with the right materials and features for your specific needs.
Ottomans are used as footstools, extra seating or coffee tables. Some of the popular ottomans are leather cube ottomans, storage cocktail ottomans and upholstered ottomans and round ottomans. According to many scholars, an ottoman was the first ever-cushioned seat without back or arms, or a storage-box with a padded top. They are available in all sizes - starting from standard size to small and even to oversize and round. There are many types of round ottomans that might suit one's home and purpose, and give the room the charm one is looking for. To most people the most decorative and attractive ottomans are the round ones.
Obviously an Ottoman should not be used as a coffee table without utilizing a serving tray on top as soft material and hot liquid drinks do not make a good combination. The answer is simple. Use a serving tray when you have guests and need a place to serve refreshments. Obviously be careful if you do have young children as the hot drinks will be at their height level. The more common uses of an ottoman are as a footstool or if large enough, a day bed but sometimes they will double up as a seat. If you have more guests than chairs, I am sure younger people won't mind using it as something to sit on. It won't be comfortable for long periods of time as it doesn't have the back support but it will do in an emergency.
With round ottomans one can adorn all kinds of living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, dining rooms, home offices, and dens with furnishings. Round ottomans are mostly used as seating or for decorative purposes. Important components of the round ottomans are organic cotton (made with seedless and organically grown cotton), natural rubber (natural rubber components are dust mite repellents), and maple wood (dried maple is used and often the interior of wood is left unfinished).
