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. Many beautiful ottomans are covered with leather. They are mostly used as storage benches, and footrests are constructed with a sturdy hardwood frame. They are mostly wrapped with luxurious leather or beautiful designer fabrics.
Optional Seating. Whether it is styled in the form of a box or a chair on short legs, an ottoman is upholstered and can be used as a seat. Perhaps not as comfortable as an armchair, but sufficient as an emergency or alternative seating option in your home during parties or when a crowd of friends descend upon you. It can be stored away under a table and pulled out when needed - or rolled out if your ottoman is fitted with casters.
When the whole family is gathered in the living room or when you have guests over you can use an ottoman for extra seating. You dont need to pair an ottoman with a particular chair. You can place a couple of ottomans in your living room and they can be used either for seating or can be moved around to use as footrests. If you are sitting on the floor in your living room finishing your paperwork or working on your laptop then an ottoman can even double as a work surface. You can use an ottoman as a table and balance your plate on it as well. To avoid spillage a lot of ottomans are now designed with a reversible cover. The cushion on top of the ottoman can be reversed and the underside is fitted with a tray so that you can use the ottoman as a table or a work surface.
While ottomans are primarily intended as a piece of furniture that allows us a chance to relax at the end of a busy or stressful day, theres no reason why they cant be stylish, too.
Quite interestingly, the term is derived from the French word ottomane, which is the feminine version of ottoman. The word could have also been derived from the Italian Ottomano, Medieval Latin Ottomanus, Medieval Greek Othomanoia, from Arabic Utmani. Ottoman was also the name of an empire of the late 16th century.
