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.
When I first started looking for an ottoman for my craft space I knew that I wanted a square one so that at least got the shape I was looking for out of the way, or so I thought. Square is definitely an easy enough shape to center on, but the pieces you’ll find will come in all sizes, heights, and designs.
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.
If you need a compact bedding option for occasional house guests, consider buying an ottoman sleeper. Not only is the handy bed ottoman comfortable and unassuming when down; the convertible aspect will wow every visitor lucky enough to enjoy it.
If you’re looking for a chair ottoman or an attractive footstool, you’ll be happy to find that tufted ottomans have a lot to offer. Tufting keeps an ottoman’s foam and cotton filling from shifting or bunching, which is prone to happen after repeated use. Button-tufted ottomans also have an elegant, classic look that’s surprisingly affordable. For practical reasons, if you’re looking for a coffee-table ottoman or tray table ottoman, stay away from tufting.
Popular for indoor and outdoor patios, wicker seating is especially inviting when accompanied by a good rattan ottoman. It’s durable, light and easy to personalize. With a few brush strokes, you can turn a white rattan ottoman into a modern, customized pink, green or black wicker ottoman. Just keep your rattan furniture away from extreme heat and humidity and treat it with the occasional cleaning to ensure you enjoy it for years.
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.
