Curved ottomans are actually slightly out of fashion currently although they can still work extremely well in the right setting. Due to their shape, it's not advisable to combine rounded ottomans with linear furniture as this will create a slightly uncouth aesthetic. Instead, opt for a curved piece only in circumstances where you are working with a curvature as part of the existing look, either from the sofa or room itself. Ultimately, an ottoman has to accentuate the existing look by following pre-established design principles as otherwise you will find it will compete with other items of furniture, disrupting the interior look and feel.
Ottomans can also be adapted for use as a coffee table or storage unit. Typically coffee table ottomans are a little larger than standard ones and are covered with a sturdy material that is easy to clean such as leather or vinyl. Ottoman storage units come with hollowed out sections for you to store bits and pieces like magazines, TV remotes and smaller items that you don't want cluttering the place. These types of ottomans are ultra-convenient for those who struggle to maintain an orderly and tidy home but who do not wish to compromise on style in the process.
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.
Ottomans can also provide much needed additional seating for your children. Because they are smaller than a standard armchair or sofa they can fit perfectly in a child's room and most children will love sitting on them. You can brighten up the colours of your ottoman by purchasing separate loose covers or simply request them to be upholstered in specific child-friendly colours and materials to match their bedrooms. It's worth also choosing a material that is easy to wash if you are buying an ottoman for your child!
