An ottoman traditionally is a wooden box with cushioning on top. These boxes are used to rest your feet when you are relaxing. Ottomans were very popular in the Ottoman Empire and this is where it gets its name from. Normally ottomans are sold as part of a set and are paired with an armchair or glider. They are designed to match the chair or glider that they are paired with. In most homes they can be found in the living room and are used solely to put up ones feet. Designers are now coming up with innovative ways to use this piece of furniture and there are number of different uses that ottomans can be used for.
Irresistible Charm. The numerous styles and fabric options make it hard to resist owning a storage ottoman.You can purchase a large square or rectangle shaped ottoman or even a round storage ottoman all of which offer unique style and extra storage. If you need something smaller the cube ottoman might be a perfect fit for your needs. Either choice is sure to add a unique touch of style to your living areas.
The Right Size. To be functional an ottomans height should precisely match the height of the sofa or chair that you will occupy while using it. Ottomans should be chosen in consideration of those who will most use them. For some a light ottoman will provide all the support needed. For others a larger wider piece is a better choice.
