Many people who buy ottomans today look for ones with storage as well as trays. Storage functionality is an asset in compact living spaces. You can store anything from blankets magazines plates or any other items that you do not need lying around all the time. When I was living in a dorm I had an ottoman with 2 units. I used one storage cube to put my blanket and the other for books. It was very convenient. The use of the upside down cushion as a tray is invaluable. You can place your drinks food and coffee cups without having to use another tray. This comes very handy when watching football or basket ball games.
Consider what you will be using your ottoman for before you decide where to buy it from as well as what type of ottoman you want. If your household is particularly chaotic filled with pets and kids for example you may wish to buy an ottoman that is upholstered in materials which are easy to clean. You can also find ottomans that come with storage space for you to store items in and help keep the place tidy. Ottomans also can be used as coffee tables although these are usually slightly bigger and upholstered in sturdy leather for durability. If you are just after a good old fashioned ottoman to put your feet up on then you simply need to decide what colour scheme and materials will best suit your living room.

Ottomans are so useful that some people actually build their furniture suites around them. Some ottomans have been in families for generations and instead of getting new ones the family hand me down is simply re-done so another generation can feel the pleasure of one of the worlds most popular and beloved piece of furniture.
To give a more comprehensive definition of ottoman it can be said that an ottoman is a heavy ribbed fabric of a mixture of silk and wool or cotton. They are also known as the ottoman silk. According to many scholars an ottoman was the first cushioned seat without back or arms or a storage-box with a padded top.
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.
