When I was designing the living room for my new apartment, I knew that I wanted a luxurious plush feel to everything, and velvet was just the key. That’s how I started my search for a velvet ottoman and compiled this list of examples of this style. I include it here in the hopes it may be useful to others looking for their own luxurious ottoman furniture.
The first part of selecting an ottoman is obviously deciding where you want to use it and what kind of feeling you want it to evoke. For my purposes, velvet was the only option, as I wanted the space I was furnishing to have a relaxed and luxuriant feel.
While you might be able to pull off the look of a leather ottoman and a fabric sofa, the reverse is more challenging. On the other hand, if your living room already features fabric furniture, you have a wealth of fabric ottoman upholsteries to choose from. Pick out a microfiber ottoman in a bright hue to draw the eye to the center of the room. Get a fabric ottoman and an assortment of inexpensive, attractive ottoman slipcovers to coordinate your ottoman by season or by throw pillow.
Some forms of ottoman actually collapse down for convenient storage, though you won’t often see one of those with a lid that turns into a tray. The important thing is to keep a list of things you like as you explore the options out there, and slowly winnow it down until you have a small selection to make a final decision from.
Coffee-table ottomans and tray ottomans are extremely popular. Coffee-table ottomans solve the problem of feet on the coffee table and create all-in-one centerpieces for small living rooms or cozy quarters. At the other end of the spectrum, tray ottomans give you all-in-one furniture that’s personalized to any seat in the house. Versatile, mobile and separable, your ottoman tray can be used as a stand for a laptop or breakfast in bed.
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.
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.
