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.

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.
A second leather furniture manufacture called American Leather is located in Dallas, Texas. They are well known for their Comfort Sleepers which are created in most bed sizes.

Ottomans are foot rests that are nicely upholstered (in most cases) in such material as leather or the like.
Using ottomans in home décor is not new, and according to the Encyclopaedia* Britannica (not Wikipedia) the ottoman has been with us since the late 18th century when it was introduced to Europe from Turkey (the Ottoman Empire). Its origins are irrelevant to its current use, which is as a footstool or a seat. Some ottomans consist of a small padded seat standing on four legs, while others are in the form of a padded box with a hinged lid the storage ottoman.
But in the olden days, people were very adept of making fine and luscious leather. No two pieces of leather look the same they each have their own unique characteristics. That is what makes them so precious. Omnia Leather is one of the best leather manufacturers in the U.S. It is based in California and offers dozens of colors and grades. Much of Omnias leather comes from a European tannery in Sweden. The hides are shipped to the U.S. and then stretched onto the Americanmade frames.
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.

Ottomans are so useful that some people actually build their furniture suites around them. Some ottomans have been in families for generations and instead of getting new ones, the family hand me down is simply redone so another generation can feel the pleasure of one of the worlds most popular and beloved piece of furniture.
