Ottoman. Wednesday , October 04th , 2017 - 13:25:58 PM
These are the reasons behind the increasing popularity of compact furniture like ottomans. Not only they are compact, but they are also multifunctional. When you buy an ottoman, it can be used as a storage place, a foot stool, a seat, a coffee table, as well as a tray. In the absence of arm rests or backs like in sofas, they are relatively lightweight, and therefore easy to move. Ottomans are perfect for dorm rooms, small apartments, condominiums, and small homes.
They can be upholstered in childfriendly 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. These are just 7 uses for an ottoman in a normal household, although you can likely think of more. It is an extremely underrated and versatile item of home furniture that most households do not even own. Those that have taken the step to acquire one can no longer do without it.
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.
