In 1299 there was an event that occurred that would change the way the world decorated its houses and living rooms for centuries to follow. The event would be the establishment of the Ottoman Empire, which would continue to exist in some form until 1922.
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.
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.
