Ottoman coffee tables. Most well-made ottomans are solid enough to be used as coffee tables - and not just in an emergency! Many use their ottoman as a coffee table period! Your ottoman is usually lower in height than your chair or sofa and is perfect as a coffee table. Some ottomans have a shelf under the top that can be used to store magazines so apart from being upholstered they are more table-like than ottoman-like!
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.
A round ottoman is great for a sectional with a wedge or rounded corners. With no corners it is easy to get around.

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.
