Ottomans are decorative furniture pieces that are used for seating, lying down, storage and giving a gorgeous look to your living room. Ottomans are common in countries like the United States and European countries, but they are seldom found in the third world countries. Quite interestingly, the term is derived from the French word ottomane, which is the feminine version of ottoman. The word could have also been derived from the Italian Ottomano, Medieval Latin Ottomanus, Medieval Greek Othomanoia, from Arabic Utmani. Ottoman was also the name of an empire of the late 16th century.
Of course you still get the normal storage space that you would expect. This ottomans storage space is 18inches x 18inches x 17inches. Not really into the square ottomans? Here is a round solution for you. This round leather ottoman has a storage tray and internal storage just like the square ones. It is about 16 in diameter and sits a little over 17 high. Cutout carrying handles allow this storage seat to easily be moved.
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.
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.
