There are several types of ottomans: standard, storage, ottoman tables, coffee table ottoman and bench.
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.
Ottomans are no longer just a piece of furniture for you to put your feet on. Innovative designs have given the ottoman a number of uses. Dont be afraid to think creatively. You dont have to keep ottomans only in your living area; they can be used in any room to create a multi function cozy sitting area.
The Right Style. A broad selection of ottomans ensures that there is a piece to suit any taste and any decor. For warm and cozy rooms, consider ottomans with bases, constructed in rich colors and textured fabrics. Ottomans with legs are a good choice for more formal decorating styles, as well as when a lighter look is needed. Often, ottomans are chosen to match existing seating, but you may want to consider purchasing a distinctive ottoman instead. Ottomans can be used to add decorative interest to a room, though a pop of color, contrasting texture or a unique shape.
When looking for living room furniture, ottomans many times come to mind as an after thought or almost an after-market purchase. An ottoman can come with an armchair or glider and is often designed as an accessory or part of a set together with the armchair.
