The Right Size. To be functional, an ottomans 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.
When looking for living room furniture, ottomans many times come to mind as an after thought or almost an after-market purchase. An ottoman can come with an armchair or glider and is often designed as an accessory or part of a set together with the armchair.
Getting to Know You. If its use as a footrest or as seating is not sufficient relaxation, ottomans come in many different sizes, and double sized version can be used for relaxation or to cuddle up to your favorite person. They are armless loveseats, so the only way to avoid falling off the edge is to hold onto each other - or so you can claim!
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.
