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.
In my excitement, I put together a list of these couches in the hopes that others who were seeking a similar furnishing solution might benefit from it.
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.
Round ottomans are particularly good at packing a lot of comfort and versatility into a small frame, and they look good doing it. A round ottoman adds depth and dimension to a room that’s in danger of succumbing to a grid pattern. Place a round ottoman in a small conversation nook to create a communal focal point. Better yet, combine one with a round couch for a truly unique, contemporary look.
Square ottomans are adept at supplementing the look of the upholstered furniture surrounding it, whether it’s a matched ottoman pattern or an accented ottoman cube. Look for ottoman sets in square shapes, custom-made to the dimensions of an exquisite sofa, loveseat or sectional. If you think a long, rectangular ottoman is right for your space, but you are reluctant because of the bulk, consider buying a pair of svelte square ottomans or a trio of cube ottomans. When you move them together, unify them with a long tray or table runner; when you move them apart, distribute them among your living room chairs for personalized comfort.
Put together everything you can think of into a list and have it ready when you go shopping, and be prepared to alter that list as you find new features you didn’t know of and eliminate other factors from it. In the end, this process will lead you to find the perfect ottoman, and the list I’ve provided above will be a great place to start.
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?
