Iva. Ottoman. September 21st , 2017.
Standard ottomans are basically footrests for an armchair or easy chair. That is all they are made to do. When some one says, Put your feet up and take a load off, they are really telling you to sit down in a comfortable chair, relax and rest your feet on the ottoman that is in front of the chair. 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.
In the vast majority of ottomans, each cube has a separate cushion, and a separate storage area. In the models with trays, each cushion can be turned over to use as individual trays. Most ottomans manufactured today are constructed with solid hardwood frames and leather or synthetic (leatherlike) covers. Synthetic materials include vinyl, fauxleather, bicast leather, or microfiber fabric. Ottomans with real leather are not that common and are expensive.
The use of the upside down cushion as a tray is invaluable. You can place your drinks, food, and coffee cups without having to use another tray. This comes very handy when watching football or basket ball games. Ottomans of all types can be found online. There can be a great disparity in price for the same model made by the same manufacturer. Usually, you can find great deals at online retailers like Amazon.
Absolutely no assembly is required. I dont think you will find a better deal for this price. Lets talk American leather furniture for a minute. Generally when thinking of exquisite leather ottomans, we gravitate to the European manufacturers who have spent centuries perfecting the process of tanning leather and building hardwood furniture. The process of making leather has really grown in the past several hundreds years, and compared to today, older technology would not even compare.
To be functional, an ottomans height should precisely match the height of the sofa or chair that you will occupy while using it. Ottomans should be chosen in consideration of those who will most use them. For some, a light ottoman will provide all the support needed. For others, a larger, wider piece is a better choice. 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.
