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.
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.
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.
