To give a more comprehensive definition of ottoman, it can be said that an ottoman is a heavy ribbed fabric of a mixture of silk and wool or cotton. They are also known as the ottoman silk. According to many scholars, an ottoman was the first cushioned seat without back or arms, or a storagebox 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.
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.
