A square ottoman looks great with a sectional that has equal lengths on both sides as well as U-shape sofas.
To be functional an ottoman's height should precisely match the height of the sofa or chair that you will occupy while using it. Ottomans should be chosen in consideration of those who will most use them. For some a light ottoman will provide all the support needed. For others a larger wider piece is a better choice.
Don’t let the white fool you; this upholstered cube from Ballard Designs is anything but basic or boring. And it’s actually available in myriad colors and patterns.
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.
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.
Lulu & Georgia had me at royal blue. Its Florence ottoman provides a killer pop of color and a dash of glam for a bedroom or living space.
