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.
When I first started looking for an ottoman for my craft space I knew that I wanted a square one so that at least got the shape I was looking for out of the way, or so I thought. Square is definitely an easy enough shape to center on, but the pieces you’ll find will come in all sizes, heights, and designs.
The ottoman couch has a history as long as the empire after which it was named, but it has yet to stop seeing new innovations occur. While initially, ottoman couches would practically encircle a room, they are now reduced to furniture often found in the corners of rooms, used as footstools, or less commonly couches.
In their original form, they were typically armless couches that would surround three-quarters of the space of any given room. Eventually, they lost their backs and slowly became furniture that was commonly used in the corner of the room, as footstools, or easily moved seats.
Something is enduring about the functional simplicity of the ottoman. A common piece of furniture since the rise of the Ottoman Empire and especially popular during the Victorian era, it’s appeared in multiple forms, sizes, and colors. One of the most popular innovations that have occurred over the extensive lifespan of the ottoman is that of internal storage.
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.
Throughout the history of this household item, it would take on many different forms, and wind up significantly changed from its initial design which would often dominate three-quarters of the walls in a room. Today ottomans are usually found in the form of footstools and, less frequently, large benches that can double as armless, backless couches.
