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.
Faux fur never looked this cool. Add this pouf to a nursery or a living room for an extra-warm touch.
Moroccan poufs are a dime a dozen these days but this lime-green one from Serena & Lily stands out from the crowd for obvious reasons. Or choose another bold color to take a room from blah to brilliant.
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.
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.
Accent pieces. While ottomans are footrests seats and storage containers they can also be used as accent pieces that pick out a color in your décor and display it is bright vivid color. In fact it can scream out to everybody in the room "Look At Me!" - I am beautiful so don't ignore me. Ring a bell? Ottomans can be used as occasional furniture for storage of these ugly bits and pieces you need in your room but want hidden and as an extravagant item of furniture showing itself off.
