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.
While the ottoman was once a centerpiece in any room, covering up to three-quarters of the available wall space in its original design, it’s humbler footstool design is no less respected or coveted in the modern age. Throughout history, multiple cultures have embraced this piece of furniture, and I was about to do some embracing of my own.
In their original form, they were typically armless couches that would surround three-quarters of the space of any given room. Eventually, they lost their backs and slowly became furniture that was commonly used in the corner of the room, as footstools, or easily moved seats.
Coffee-table ottomans and tray ottomans are extremely popular. Coffee-table ottomans solve the problem of feet on the coffee table and create all-in-one centerpieces for small living rooms or cozy quarters. At the other end of the spectrum, tray ottomans give you all-in-one furniture that’s personalized to any seat in the house. Versatile, mobile and separable, your ottoman tray can be used as a stand for a laptop or breakfast in bed.
In order to find your way through this morass, you’ll need to get organized and determine exactly what it is you’re looking for. The easiest thing to start with is usually color, pick one or two that will match the color of the space you plan to put them.
I knew that the ottoman I was looking for would have storage, be reasonably attractive, and be made of a material that would be durable and comfortable in equal measure. A tall order, I know. Those are some of the other considerations you’ll have to make when you’re looking for your own square storage ottoman.
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.
