Storage Ottomans. Storage ottomans are virtually upholstered boxes with padded lids. The lids are hinged and open up to provide storage space that can be used in a number of ways. For example, an ottoman can be used as a coffee table with a sofa bed, and also to store the bedding for when the sofa is needed as a bed. It can be used as a piano stool, storing sheet music and other items.
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.
Storage ottomans are just that: they are built for storage. The padded top is usually hinged and can open up to reveal an open space in heart of the ottoman in which people generally store blankets for use with the easy chair and ottoman. Many people use ottomans as tables and if they have a flat, level surface, so much the better. They can be used as coffee tables or benches.
Anyone who has ever said, "All I want to do is get home and put my feet up," knows how valuable ottoman furniture can be. Whether to stretch out at the end of the day to read a good book or watch a movie, or whether to elevate your feet to protect your health, an ottoman offers comfort and ease. Both functional and decorative factors should be considered before purchasing ottoman furniture, to ensure that you choose the right ottoman for your home.
Ottoman Coffee Tables. Most well-made ottomans are solid enough to be used as coffee tables - and not just in an emergency! Many use their ottoman as a coffee table period! Your ottoman is usually lower in height than your chair or sofa, and is perfect as a coffee table. Some ottomans have a shelf under the top that can be used to store magazines, so apart from being upholstered they are more table-like than ottoman-like!
