Berta Pohl. Ottoman & Storage Ottoman. May 12th , 2020.
The history of the ottoman stretches back hundreds of years into our past to the years after 1299 when the ottoman empire was founded. While this empire would endure in one form or another until 1922, the furniture that it inspired would continue well into modern day.
While the ottoman was once a centerpiece in any room, covering up to three-quarters of the available wall space in its original design, it’s humbler footstool design is no less respected or coveted in the modern age. Throughout history, multiple cultures have embraced this piece of furniture, and I was about to do some embracing of my own.
In my excitement, I put together a list of these couches in the hopes that others who were seeking a similar furnishing solution might benefit from it.
Coffee-table ottomans and tray ottomans are extremely popular. Coffee-table ottomans solve the problem of feet on the coffee table and create all-in-one centerpieces for small living rooms or cozy quarters. At the other end of the spectrum, tray ottomans give you all-in-one furniture that’s personalized to any seat in the house. Versatile, mobile and separable, your ottoman tray can be used as a stand for a laptop or breakfast in bed.
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.
Another feature that came to be associated with many models was interior storage, and I happened to find myself in a situation where I was in need of a versatile piece of furniture that included space to put things. Below is the culled down list of ottomans I explored while looking for the right addition to my home décor.
I knew that an ottoman was a piece that I wanted in my living room, but I also knew that it needed to be paired with the comfiest of chairs. It was during a search for this that I stumbled onto these over-sized chairs that came packaged with great ottoman. There was an impressive number of these, but I managed to winnow it down to these five before I made my final selection.
