An ottoman is a wooden box that has cushioning on top. This box can be used for storage. Instead of leaving books, CDs and games piled up around the living area you can neatly put them away inside your ottoman. A lot of ottomans now come with easy lift lids and with built-in organization centers that makes storing things in the base of the ottoman easy and convenient. Ottomans are a great way to get that extra storage space and you can put away the things that you are not using in your living area. Ottomans can also be used for extra seating. An ottoman does not have a back or arms but they are still very comfortable to sit on.
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.
According to many scholars, an ottoman was the first ever-cushioned seat without back or arms, or a storage-box with a padded top. 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.
