Of course, regardless of the color, you’re going to be presented with numerous materials and styles of upholstery. Channeled upholstery has nicely stitched lines, while tufted upholstery includes buttons that provide a familiar sectioned surface.
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 idea of having a comfortable and functional piece of furniture that also added additional storage space to the home appealed strongly to those who use them. When combined with a square design, it enhances the use of both the furniture and space inside it.
Throughout the history of this household item, it would take on many different forms, and wind up significantly changed from its initial design which would often dominate three-quarters of the walls in a room. Today ottomans are usually found in the form of footstools and, less frequently, large benches that can double as armless, backless couches.
Put together everything you can think of into a list and have it ready when you go shopping, and be prepared to alter that list as you find new features you didn’t know of and eliminate other factors from it. In the end, this process will lead you to find the perfect ottoman, and the list I’ve provided above will be a great place to start.
Some forms of ottoman actually collapse down for convenient storage, though you won’t often see one of those with a lid that turns into a tray. The important thing is to keep a list of things you like as you explore the options out there, and slowly winnow it down until you have a small selection to make a final decision from.
During your search, if you happen to find a piece that has the color and style you like but doesn’t include the measurements for both pieces, be certain to drop the seller a line for them. While you’re looking for an oversized chair and ottoman pair you’re going to discover that they come in an extensive range of colors, styles, and configurations.
