These plush footstools are an elegant callback to the favored furniture of the Ottoman Empire from which they get their name. The overall tufted design was a common feature of furniture of the era, and throughout the centuries they came to be the comfortable and versatile pieces we know today.
The most recent design of ottomans asks an important question, why settle for a couch OR a footstool when you can have both? When I was looking for a way to store multiple guest beds in my house without taking up undue space, I was shocked when I stumbled onto ottoman that could be converted into couches that were serviceable as guest beds.
The ottoman couch has a history as long as the empire after which it was named, but it has yet to stop seeing new innovations occur. While initially, ottoman couches would practically encircle a room, they are now reduced to furniture often found in the corners of rooms, used as footstools, or less commonly couches.
