Ottomans of all types can be found online. There can be a great disparity in price for the same model made by the same manufacturer. Usually you can find great deals at online retailers like Amazon.com. One other thing you should look into when buying an ottoman is the reputation and track record of the manufacturer. I know some people who had difficulty in contacting and getting support when they had questions or problems with the purchase.
These are the reasons behind the increasing popularity of compact furniture like ottomans. Not only they are compact but they are also multifunctional. When you buy an ottoman it can be used as a storage place a foot stool a seat a coffee table as well as a tray. In the absence of arm rests or backs like in sofas they are relatively lightweight and therefore easy to move. Ottomans are perfect for dorm rooms small apartments condominiums and small homes.
Quite interestingly the term is derived from the French word ottomane which is the feminine version of ottoman. The word could have also been derived from the Italian Ottomano Medieval Latin Ottomanus Medieval Greek Othomanoia from Arabic Utmani. Ottoman was also the name of an empire of the late 16th century.
