The first part of selecting an ottoman is obviously deciding where you want to use it and what kind of feeling you want it to evoke. For my purposes, velvet was the only option, as I wanted the space I was furnishing to have a relaxed and luxuriant feel.
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.
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.
I knew that an ottoman was a piece that I wanted in my living room, but I also knew that it needed to be paired with the comfiest of chairs. It was during a search for this that I stumbled onto these over-sized chairs that came packaged with great ottoman. There was an impressive number of these, but I managed to winnow it down to these five before I made my final selection.
The only storage that’s available in ottoman couches of this type is going to be what space is available under the assembled ottoman couch since the internal space will be used for additional cushioning.
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.
