This round Hayes tufted ottoman from Ballard Designs solves a lot of style woes. With its many color options and tufted top luxury never came so easily.
Optional seating. Whether it is styled in the form of a box or a chair on short legs an ottoman is upholstered and can be used as a seat. Perhaps not as comfortable as an armchair but sufficient as an emergency or alternative seating option in your home during parties or when a crowd of friends descend upon you. It can be stored away under a table and pulled out when needed - or rolled out if your ottoman is fitted with casters.
The ottoman as a footrest. Many people love to stretch their legs out when sitting. Whether they are reading a book watching TV or simply resting or napping people like to elevate their feet and legs. The biological effect is to reduce the stress on the heart in pumping blood up through the non-return valves in the veins of their legs by keeping your legs raised your heart has less work to do and you consequently use less energy so can relax easier. The padded top of an ottoman permit you to do this comfortably and many use this type of furniture with their recliner rather than use the footrest that comes with the furniture.
Your ottoman should complement the look of your room. If the room is more classic and old fashioned than a wooden ottoman will fit perfectly well. It's also available in lacquer finish or if you want to make a statement no one can go wrong with an elegant leather ottoman. For chic homeowners with a budget faux leather beds work just as fine and will still give you the comfort and flexibility of ottomans.
For a serious feminine touch this Betsy bench can be your go-to girly ottoman. With plenty of color and fabric options Ballard Designs makes it easy to integrate it in your space.
