They can come in an immense range of colors, and the materials you’ll encounter will include Polyurethane Leather, linen, cotton, vinyl, and countless others. Be sure to consider the space that you’ll be putting your ottoman in and what kind of stresses it will face.
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.
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.
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.
This will still leave you with an immense amount of options, so be sure to check for other features you want, including interior storage in the ottoman. Finally, start considering styles, do you prefer the leggy approach of the mid-century ottoman or something more like the boxy design of the modern style?
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.
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.
