Walfred Sauer. Ottoman & Storage Ottoman. May 09th , 2020.
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.
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.
While you might be able to pull off the look of a leather ottoman and a fabric sofa, the reverse is more challenging. On the other hand, if your living room already features fabric furniture, you have a wealth of fabric ottoman upholsteries to choose from. Pick out a microfiber ottoman in a bright hue to draw the eye to the center of the room. Get a fabric ottoman and an assortment of inexpensive, attractive ottoman slipcovers to coordinate your ottoman by season or by throw pillow.
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.
The only storage that’s available in ottoman couches of this type is going to be what space is available under the assembled ottoman couch since the internal space will be used for additional cushioning.
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.
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.
