Also called hassocks, footstools or footrests, ottomans have so many more uses that just resting your tired feet. They are perfect for living rooms, bedrooms, home offices and dens.

Ottomans provide:

  • A place to set a tray of drinks or a plate of cookiesOttomans2.2
  • Extra seating when you have guests
  • A convenient surface for playing a game of chess or checkers
  • A seating area to put on shoes and socks
  • Some provide extra storage inside

 

Ottomans are super flexible because they can ottomans2.3be moved around a room, against a wall or under a table.

They come in all shapes, sizes, fabrics and styles to complement any décor and any size constraints. In addition to the typical square or rectangular shape, think oval or round.

You can use a fabric that matches your bedding or furniture to make the ottoman blend in – or choose fabric that contrasts to add an engaging accent.

Consider an unexpected color or bold print to call attention to this flexible piece of furniture. Or drape a scarf, pashmina or throw over an ottoman to add drama. ottomans2.4

If you’re worried about dirt from people’s feet or staining from spills, you can even slipcover your ottoman.

This season, add an ottoman to your interior. Then start thinking about all the ways you can use it!

Ottomans add flexibility, function and beauty to almost any room

17 Dec

Ottomans add flexibility, function and beauty to almost any room.
Make an ottoman a focal point of a room or use it as a design element that perfectly complements your other home fashions.
Have you ever thought, “I ought to get an ottoman?” That’s a great idea! Ottomans are not just for putting up your tired legs at the end of a long day, although that’s the traditional use.

There’s so much more that ottomans can do in living rooms, home offices, dens or bedrooms:

    • Hold a tray of drinks and appetizers or coffee and cookies
    • Add extra seating
    • Provide a place for an open suitcase in the guestroom
    • Make a spot to sit at the foot of the bed to put on shoes and socks

Ottomans are so flexible. You can move them around as needed, or push them against a wall or under a table to get them out of the way if you need more space to move around the room.
And ottomans come in such a variety of shapes, sizes, fabrics and styles. Think outside the square or rectangle with an oval or round ottoman. Use fabric that matches your other upholstered furniture or bedding – or select contrasting fabric in an unexpected color or bold print to add an interesting accent. You can even drape a throw, scarf or pashmina over an ottoman to create a design focal point. Worried about dirt from people’s feet or beverage spills? Think about slipcovering your ottoman in washable fabric.

 

Adding an ottoman to your décor gives you flexibility, function and beauty. And you’ll have fun thinking of all the ways you can use it!
