Balduin Ludwig. Ottoman & Storage Ottoman. May 11th , 2020.
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.
Ottomans are fun, functional pieces of living room furniture, and they go well beyond their modest size in completing the look of your home. At its most basic, an ottoman consists of a padded cushion, usually atop a wooden frame for resting your feet. Of course, there are countless variations on the basic theme. This ottoman buying guide gives you everything you need to know about how to buy an ottoman that will reward you and your living room again and again.
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.
Round ottomans are particularly good at packing a lot of comfort and versatility into a small frame, and they look good doing it. A round ottoman adds depth and dimension to a room that’s in danger of succumbing to a grid pattern. Place a round ottoman in a small conversation nook to create a communal focal point. Better yet, combine one with a round couch for a truly unique, contemporary look.
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.
There are obvious advantages to leather ottomans. Leather is stronger and more resistant to tearing, bunching or staining than virtually any other textile. At the same time, leather has a soft, responsive quality that makes it an ideally comfortable covering for any kind of furniture. If you’re filling in a large space, choose a black leather ottoman as a stand-out piece. If you’re putting the finishing touches on a small room, consider a beige leather cocktail ottoman. Especially in the case of leather, the right upholstery color will positively affect the proportions in your living room.
The primary purpose I had in mind for the ottoman was as a footstool, but many versions also come with convenient internal storage and are both large enough and sturdy enough to serve as additional seating.
