Lamontagne. Ottoman. October 01st , 2017.
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.
Ottomans are armless, upholstered seats or benches. They are available with a solid base or with decorative legs. Ottomans are most often used as a footstool, but they have other uses as well. Some ottomans are made hollow to provide room for storage, a feature that is particularly useful in small homes and apartments, where storage room are always welcome. Ottomans are available individually, as a component of sectional seating, or as part of an easy chair, sofa or loveseat set.
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.
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 can be any color, brown is very popular in the United States, and they can be covered in any material, leather ottomans are the most popular types of ottomans in the world.
