The Ottoman as a Footrest. Many people love to stretch their legs out when sitting. Whether they are reading a book, watching TV or simply resting or napping, people like to elevate their feet and legs. The biological effect is to reduce the stress on the heart in pumping blood up through the non-return valves in the veins of their legs,
The ottomans were the favorite piece of furniture named after the Ottoman Empire, which lasted from 1299 until 1922. The Ottoman Empire spanned three continents, Western Asia, Eastern and Southeastern Europe and North Africa. World War One ended Ottoman rule in these parts of the world, but not the spread of its cherished footstool. Even after the empire lost its power, the name stuck to this very versatile and useful footrest and its popularity spread like wild fire, especially in America. In one sense, the ottomans have reconquered a large share of the world and arguably, more people know the name now than they did when the real Ottomans were in control.
By keeping your legs raised, your heart has less work to do and you consequently use less energy so can relax easier. The padded top of an ottoman permit you to do this comfortably, and many use this type of furniture with their recliner rather than use the footrest that comes with the furniture.
According to many scholars, an ottoman was the first ever-cushioned seat without back or arms, or a storage-box with a padded top. There are many types of ottomans that might suit ones home and purpose, and give the room the charm one is looking for. They are available in all sizes - starting from standard size to small and even to oversize.
