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!
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.
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.
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.
