Why is an ottoman useful?


Ottomans and poufs often serve multiple purposes, so you truly get more bang for your buck. Traditionally, they were used as footstools, though now they are also commonly used as upholstered coffee or side tables. An ottoman bench, beanbag or pouf can function as additional seating, while hollowed-out units are great for hidden storage. On top of its practical purposes, an ottoman is also a great decorative accessory; they often come in bright colors, vibrant patterns or with nailhead or tufted details.

What ottoman or pouf shapes are available?


Ottomans are generally round, square or rectangular, with each shape available in a variety of sizes. Round ottomans are great for adding an unexpected shape to a living space with primarily rectangular furniture, while, adversely, square ottomans work well to complement such a layout. Smaller cubes are a form of square ottomans: these are great for sneaking in extra seating space, or to create an extra long coffee table by pushing several together. Rectangular ottomans often double as coffee tables, and can be custom made to fit the length of your sofa.

What ottoman materials should I consider?


Ottomans often come in the same materials as sofas and sectionals, so think about what your preference is for larger furniture pieces — though they don't have to match up. After all, adding a leather ottoman in a room with a fabric sofa can add some much-needed texture variation. They commonly come in leather or some sort of upholstery, though weaves and woods are gaining in popularity. As you pick out the material, think about its function as well as its traditional design; a wood stump would be an uncomfortable footstool, while a cushy pouf wouldn't suffice as a side table.
