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.
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.
Storage can be stylish with this Oxford storage ottoman from Lulu & Georgia. It provides the extra storage you need in tight quarters without sacrificing style.
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.
An ottoman in the closet - what a great idea! This simple addition - which doesn't take up too much space in this admittedly huge walk-in - is so functional. Plus it gives the closet a dressing room feeling that gives whole new meaning to "shopping in your closet".
Kids love ottomans - and vice versa. Ottomans are child friendly - if a small child falls off an ottoman he or she is unlikely to come to any harm. They can be upholstered in child-friendly fabrics and can offer them a playing surface when they are sitting on the floor. They can be used to sit in front of the TV with a games controller and used as a hurdle in the hall for racing or as a horse when riding!
