Storage ottomans are just that: they are built for storage. The padded top is usually hinged and can open up to reveal an open space in heart of the ottoman in which people generally store blankets for use with the easy chair and ottoman. Many people use ottomans as tables and if they have a flat level surface so much the better. They can be used as coffee tables or benches.
Ottomans manufactured today are square rectangular or round. Square and rectangular configurations are the most popular. Straight edged ottomans come in four basic configurations. The smallest one has a square shape and it is commonly called Cube Ottoman. The next one consists of two cube ottomans joined together. The third one has three cube ottomans joined together. It is commonly called a Bench Ottoman. The largest one is square-shaped and it consists of four cube ottomans. In the vast majority of ottomans each cube has a separate cushion and a separate storage area. In the models with trays each cushion can be turned over to use as individual trays.
Ottoman furniture is gaining popularity as living spaces are becoming more and more expensive. The trend today is gearing towards compact living. More and more people are leaving their rural and suburban dwellings and gradually concentrating in cities and industrial towns. This trend is growing because of employment opportunities better schooling for children and to reduce transportation expenses. In cities you can get public transport instead of driving your own vehicle saving on fuel cost that is quite expensive these days.
