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.
The idea of having a comfortable and functional piece of furniture that also added additional storage space to the home appealed strongly to those who use them. When combined with a square design, it enhances the use of both the furniture and space inside it.
Ottomans are fun, functional pieces of living room furniture, and they go well beyond their modest size in completing the look of your home. At its most basic, an ottoman consists of a padded cushion, usually atop a wooden frame for resting your feet. Of course, there are countless variations on the basic theme. This ottoman buying guide gives you everything you need to know about how to buy an ottoman that will reward you and your living room again and again.
There are obvious advantages to leather ottomans. Leather is stronger and more resistant to tearing, bunching or staining than virtually any other textile. At the same time, leather has a soft, responsive quality that makes it an ideally comfortable covering for any kind of furniture. If you’re filling in a large space, choose a black leather ottoman as a stand-out piece. If you’re putting the finishing touches on a small room, consider a beige leather cocktail ottoman. Especially in the case of leather, the right upholstery color will positively affect the proportions in your living room.
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.
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.
Finding a logical area for your throw pillows and blankets can be one of your living room’s greatest challenges. Storage ottomans offer the complete package: a place for your fleece throws and cashmere blankets and a place for your feet. Your average small square black storage ottoman has enough room for about three folded blankets. If you need space for blankets as well as board games, consider a bench ottoman with storage to spare.
