Published at Friday, 23 August 2019. Ottoman & Storage Ottoman. By Magnilda Scholz.
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.
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.
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.
