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 history of the ottoman stretches back hundreds of years into our past to the years after 1299 when the ottoman empire was founded. While this empire would endure in one form or another until 1922, the furniture that it inspired would continue well into modern day.
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.
