The primary purpose I had in mind for the ottoman was as a footstool, but many versions also come with convenient internal storage and are both large enough and sturdy enough to serve as additional seating.
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.
Most modern rectangle ottomans take a page from coffee tables and storage bench seats by combining storage, display potential and generous surface area. When space permits, a rectangular ottoman is all you need to round off a cozy nook or living room centerpiece. Consider moving your coffee table to a secondary seating area, making way for a modern, rectangular ottoman in your living room’s spotlight.
While that year spelled the end of the empire itself, the furniture that it inspired would continue to make itself known in homes and businesses till the modern day. This piece of furniture, you’ll be unsurprised to learn, is known as the ottoman.
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.
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.
Convertible ottoman couches come in a broad variety of designs, though all of them share one thing in common. They compact down into a comfortable ottoman footstool and unfold into an easy to assemble sleeper bed or low ottoman couch. Some varieties of ottoman sofas sacrifice appearance for this functionality, while others find creative ways to accommodate both needs and states.
