Kids Love Ottomans - And Vice Versa. Ottomans are child friendly - if a small child falls off an ottoman he or she is unlikely to come to any harm. They can be upholstered in child-friendly fabrics, and can offer them a playing surface when they are sitting on the floor. They can be used to sit in front of the TV with a games controller and used as a hurdle in the hall for racing, or as a horse when riding!
Ottomans are used as footstools, extra seating, a coffee table, or as bedroom furniture. Some of the popular ottomans are leather cube ottomans, storage cocktail ottomans, upholstered ottomans and round ottomans.
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 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.
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.
