Pottery Barn doesn’t wimp out with ottomans. Case in point: this Caden ottoman. The large leather top on strong wooden legs makes it a perfect table or stellar seating.
For a twist on the pouf trend look no farther than this leather piece from Ballard Designs. Striking a balance between sturdy and sweet it will make the rounds throughout your home.
I love this yellow quilted piece. It's got a Mies Barcelona vibe brightened by vibrant color that's a fantastic fit with the white room and gorgeous view. This is a great example of how one low piece of furniture can add a whole new aesthetic dimension to a space.
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.
Quite interestingly the term is derived from the French word 'ottomane' which is the feminine version of ottoman. The word could have also been derived from the Italian 'Ottomano' Medieval Latin 'Ottomanus' Medieval Greek 'Othomanoia' from Arabic 'Utmani'. Ottoman was also the name of an empire of the late 16th century.
This classic Palmer ottoman from Layla Grace will prance its way into your heart. Its stunning nailhead detailing is the oomph that elevates it to an entirely new level.
