Because their main purpose is to put your feet up on them, it is always advised to pick one that is upholstered in a dark leather, vinyl, or a fabric that can be easily cleaned. Light colors will pick up dirt as well as show signs of wear and tear over time so be sure to choose your ottoman accordingly. They will almost always have a sturdy hardwood frame, especially if their purpose is to be used as a storage bench or footrest to ensure extra stability. Along with color it is also important to choose between the varied shapes that are offered, including round and cubed varieties. Size is another key component to keep in mind, depending on where you will be placing your ottoman will determine the size needed whether it is small, medium, or large.
Many people who buy ottomans today look for ones with storage as well as trays. Storage functionality is an asset in compact living spaces. You can store anything from blankets, magazines, plates, or any other items that you do not need lying around all the time. When I was living in a dorm, I had an ottoman with 2 units. I used one storage cube to put my blanket, and the other for books. It was very convenient. The use of the upside down cushion as a tray is invaluable. You can place your drinks, food, and coffee cups without having to use another tray. This comes very handy when watching football or basket ball games.
To give a more comprehensive definition of ottoman, it can be said that an ottoman is a heavy ribbed fabric of a mixture of silk and wool or cotton. They are also known as the ottoman silk. According to many scholars, an ottoman was the first cushioned seat without back or arms, or a storage-box with a padded top.
Standard ottomans are basically footrests for an armchair or easy chair. That is all they are made to do. When some one says, "Put your feet up and take a load off," they are really telling you to sit down in a comfortable chair, relax and rest your feet on the ottoman that is in front of the chair.
