There have been many iterations of the handy ottoman since it was first introduced by the Ottoman Empire in 1299, and one of the favorite uses for them was as a footstool paired with a comfortable chair.
If you’re looking for a chair ottoman or an attractive footstool, you’ll be happy to find that tufted ottomans have a lot to offer. Tufting keeps an ottoman’s foam and cotton filling from shifting or bunching, which is prone to happen after repeated use. Button-tufted ottomans also have an elegant, classic look that’s surprisingly affordable. For practical reasons, if you’re looking for a coffee-table ottoman or tray table ottoman, stay away from tufting.
Most modern rectangle ottomans take a page from coffee tables and storage bench seats by combining storage, display potential and generous surface area. When space permits, a rectangular ottoman is all you need to round off a cozy nook or living room centerpiece. Consider moving your coffee table to a secondary seating area, making way for a modern, rectangular ottoman in your living room’s spotlight.
When I was designing the living room for my new apartment, I knew that I wanted a luxurious plush feel to everything, and velvet was just the key. That’s how I started my search for a velvet ottoman and compiled this list of examples of this style. I include it here in the hopes it may be useful to others looking for their own luxurious ottoman furniture.
Convertible ottoman couches come in a broad variety of designs, though all of them share one thing in common. They compact down into a comfortable ottoman footstool and unfold into an easy to assemble sleeper bed or low ottoman couch. Some varieties of ottoman sofas sacrifice appearance for this functionality, while others find creative ways to accommodate both needs and states.
This will still leave you with an immense amount of options, so be sure to check for other features you want, including interior storage in the ottoman. Finally, start considering styles, do you prefer the leggy approach of the mid-century ottoman or something more like the boxy design of the modern style?
Put together everything you can think of into a list and have it ready when you go shopping, and be prepared to alter that list as you find new features you didn’t know of and eliminate other factors from it. In the end, this process will lead you to find the perfect ottoman, and the list I’ve provided above will be a great place to start.
