Lamontagne. Ottoman. September 23rd , 2017.
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.
Just as a coffee table is likely to serve as a footstool at some point, the ottoman invariably serves as a makeshift coffee table, too. As a resting place for legs and feet, an ottoman needs to be easy to clean and durable. For its durability and functionality, ottoman leather has almost become synonymous with ottoman furniture. Leather bears up well under heavy use, and its patina only improves with age. Ottoman leather suits both contemporary and traditionally decorated rooms, too, adding texture, rich color and style.
Anyone who has ever said, All I want to do is get home and put my feet up, knows how valuable ottoman furniture can be. Whether to stretch out at the end of the day to read a good book or watch a movie, or whether to elevate your feet to protect your health, an ottoman offers comfort and ease. Both functional and decorative factors should be considered before purchasing ottoman furniture, to ensure that you choose the right ottoman for your home.
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.
The use of the upside down cushion as a tray is invaluable. You can place your drinks, food, and coffee cups without having to use another tray. This comes very handy when watching football or basket ball games. Ottomans of all types can be found online. There can be a great disparity in price for the same model made by the same manufacturer. Usually, you can find great deals at online retailers like Amazon.
