Ottoman. Tuesday , October 17th , 2017 - 22:14:40 PM
An ottoman traditionally is a wooden box with cushioning on top. These boxes are used to rest your feet when you are relaxing. Ottomans were very popular in the Ottoman Empire and this is where it gets its name from. Normally ottomans are sold as part of a set and are paired with an armchair or glider. They are designed to match the chair or glider that they are paired with. In most homes they can be found in the living room and are used solely to put up ones feet. Designers are now coming up with innovative ways to use this piece of furniture and there are number of different uses that ottomans can be used for.
Most ottomans manufactured today are constructed with solid hardwood frames and leather or synthetic (leather-like) covers. Synthetic materials include vinyl, faux-leather, bi-cast leather, or microfiber fabric. Ottomans with real leather are not that common and are expensive.
There is no doubt that modern furniture styles have come a long ways towards being more comfortable and convenient. A prime example of this is how the ottoman of today serves several purposes, versus only offering a resting spot for feet and legs. The once heavy bases of vintage ottomans have been replaced with hollowed centers that turn the normal ottoman into a storage ottoman.
