Gaetane. Ottoman. October 04th , 2017.
Ottomans are no longer just a piece of furniture for you to put your feet on. Innovative designs have given the ottoman a number of uses. Dont be afraid to think creatively. You dont have to keep ottomans only in your living area; they can be used in any room to create a multi function cozy sitting area. When looking for living room furniture, ottomans many times come to mind as an after thought or almost an aftermarket purchase.
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. 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.
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. These are just 7 uses for an ottoman in a normal household, although you can likely think of more. 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.
Ottomans can also be used for extra seating. An ottoman does not have a back or arms but they are still very comfortable to sit on. When the whole family is gathered in the living room or when you have guests over you can use an ottoman for extra seating. You dont need to pair an ottoman with a particular chair. You can place a couple of ottomans in your living room and they can be used either for seating or can be moved around to use as footrests.
If its use as a footrest or as seating is not sufficient relaxation, ottomans come in many different sizes, and double sized version can be used for relaxation or to cuddle up to your favorite person. They are armless loveseats, so the only way to avoid falling off the edge is to hold onto each other or so you can claim. Ottomans are child friendly if a small child falls off an ottoman he or she is unlikely to come to any harm.
