Ottomans often come included as part of a furniture set and in such cases are intended to be used as a footrest. They will be made to match the other furniture and will sit well in the corner of the room or at the foot of your sofa or armchair. This is a great way to enhance the comfort and luxury of your living room and ensures a relaxing seating experience when unwinding with a book or to watch your favourite show. Most designer furniture suites will include an ottoman for this purpose.
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.
Ottomans are foot rests that are nicely upholstered (in most cases) in such material as leather or the like. They are a wonderful addition to any home. Ottomans are available in all sizes - starting from standard size to small and even to oversize. Many beautiful ottomans are covered with leather. They are mostly used as storage benches, and footrests are constructed with a sturdy hardwood frame. They are mostly wrapped with luxurious leather or beautiful designer fabrics.
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.
