Clarice. Ottoman. September 21st , 2017.
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.
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.
However, some of the muchadmired storage ottomans are: Deluxe Storage Ottoman (facilitated with solid wood frame and deep, comfortable padding of polyfoam), Round Storage Ottoman (most of the times these are available in a variety of finishes, like dark cherry finish, wood finish and many more), Dog Storage Ottoman (ideal for collie, poodle, terrier and such other breeds, with perfect style and comfort), Game Storage Ottoman (ottomans have the perfect game storage and seating feature), Dandy Storage Ottoman (a unique alternative to the conventional leather set with storage facilities), Storage Ottoman with Casters (these are a mixture of the upholstered as well as storage ottomans that can be converted into a bed at night), Storage Ottoman with Tabletop (facilitated with the flat table and inside pocket stores), Some of the other popular storage ottomans are sienna storage ottomans, bicast storage ottomans, bicast brown storage ottomans, storage cubes storage ottomans and many more.
If you are sitting on the floor in your living room finishing your paperwork or working on your laptop then an ottoman can even double as a work surface. You can use an ottoman as a table and balance your plate on it as well. To avoid spillage a lot of ottomans are now designed with a reversible cover. The cushion on top of the ottoman can be reversed and the underside is fitted with a tray so that you can use the ottoman as a table or a work surface.
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.
