Ottoman. Tuesday , October 17th , 2017 - 11:06:09 AM
There are several types of ottomans: standard, storage, ottoman tables, coffee table ottoman and bench. The ottomans were the favorite piece of furniture named after the Ottoman Empire, which lasted from 1299 until 1922. The Ottoman Empire spanned three continents, Western Asia, Eastern and Southeastern Europe and North Africa. World War One ended Ottoman rule in these parts of the world, but not the spread of its cherished footstool. Even after the empire lost its power, the name stuck to this very versatile and useful footrest and its popularity spread like wild fire, especially in America. In one sense, the ottomans have reconquered a large share of the world and arguably, more people know the name now than they did when the real Ottomans were in control.
Ottomans are not all made alike! For many people the term ottoman conjures up images of a bland, dark coloured piece of furniture with little practical use. However ottomans these days come in a variety of shapes, colours and sizes and can be adapted for a variety of practical uses. Ottomans can be upholstered in a variety of fabrics and can be made to match your existing furniture or come included as part of a new furniture suite. There is no reason why you cannot find or create exactly the right ottoman for your needs, theme and lifestyle.
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.
