Berta Pohl. Ottoman & Storage Ottoman. May 11th , 2020.
The most recent design of ottomans asks an important question, why settle for a couch OR a footstool when you can have both? When I was looking for a way to store multiple guest beds in my house without taking up undue space, I was shocked when I stumbled onto ottoman that could be converted into couches that were serviceable as guest beds.
I know that when I went looking for a storage ottoman for my craft room, that square would be the most convenient shape for making the maximum use of my space. On my journey for the perfect storage ottoman, I put together a list of those I thought would best fit my space and put them together here for others looking for the same.
These plush footstools are an elegant callback to the favored furniture of the Ottoman Empire from which they get their name. The overall tufted design was a common feature of furniture of the era, and throughout the centuries they came to be the comfortable and versatile pieces we know today.
I knew that the ottoman I was looking for would have storage, be reasonably attractive, and be made of a material that would be durable and comfortable in equal measure. A tall order, I know. Those are some of the other considerations you’ll have to make when you’re looking for your own square storage ottoman.
Some forms of ottoman actually collapse down for convenient storage, though you won’t often see one of those with a lid that turns into a tray. The important thing is to keep a list of things you like as you explore the options out there, and slowly winnow it down until you have a small selection to make a final decision from.
Of course, regardless of the color, you’re going to be presented with numerous materials and styles of upholstery. Channeled upholstery has nicely stitched lines, while tufted upholstery includes buttons that provide a familiar sectioned surface.
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.
