Something is enduring about the functional simplicity of the ottoman. A common piece of furniture since the rise of the Ottoman Empire and especially popular during the Victorian era, it’s appeared in multiple forms, sizes, and colors. One of the most popular innovations that have occurred over the extensive lifespan of the ottoman is that of internal storage.
The first part of selecting an ottoman is obviously deciding where you want to use it and what kind of feeling you want it to evoke. For my purposes, velvet was the only option, as I wanted the space I was furnishing to have a relaxed and luxuriant feel.
While round is the traditional shape for a piece of ottoman furniture they come in as wide a variety of shapes and sizes as you can imagine, so these are other factors I had to consider in selecting my final piece. Beyond that, it’s just a matter of choosing the color that suits you and the material from which its made. Velvet comes in a lot of different fabrics, some easier to clean than others.
Some of the most affordable, coordinated ottomans to come on the scene in the last ten years are memory foam ottomans. Memory foam is a polyurethane material that can be elastic or supportive, depending on the degree of heat in contact with it. Highly recommended for those with chronic foot pain, memory foam ottomans are also lightweight, unfussy and easy to adorn with slipcovers of your choice.
Popular for indoor and outdoor patios, wicker seating is especially inviting when accompanied by a good rattan ottoman. It’s durable, light and easy to personalize. With a few brush strokes, you can turn a white rattan ottoman into a modern, customized pink, green or black wicker ottoman. Just keep your rattan furniture away from extreme heat and humidity and treat it with the occasional cleaning to ensure you enjoy it for years.
When I was designing the living room for my new apartment, I knew that I wanted a luxurious plush feel to everything, and velvet was just the key. That’s how I started my search for a velvet ottoman and compiled this list of examples of this style. I include it here in the hopes it may be useful to others looking for their own luxurious ottoman furniture.
Round ottomans are particularly good at packing a lot of comfort and versatility into a small frame, and they look good doing it. A round ottoman adds depth and dimension to a room that’s in danger of succumbing to a grid pattern. Place a round ottoman in a small conversation nook to create a communal focal point. Better yet, combine one with a round couch for a truly unique, contemporary look.
