When the whole family is gathered in the living room or when you have guests over you can use an ottoman for extra seating. You dont need to pair an ottoman with a particular chair. You can place a couple of ottomans in your living room and they can be used either for seating or can be moved around to use as footrests. If you are sitting on the floor in your living room finishing your paperwork or working on your laptop then an ottoman can even double as a work surface. You can use an ottoman as a table and balance your plate on it as well. To avoid spillage a lot of ottomans are now designed with a reversible cover. The cushion on top of the ottoman can be reversed and the underside is fitted with a tray so that you can use the ottoman as a table or a work surface.
An ottoman traditionally is a wooden box with cushioning on top. These boxes are used to rest your feet when you are relaxing. Ottomans were very popular in the Ottoman Empire and this is where it gets its name from. Normally ottomans are sold as part of a set and are paired with an armchair or glider. They are designed to match the chair or glider that they are paired with. In most homes they can be found in the living room and are used solely to put up ones feet. Designers are now coming up with innovative ways to use this piece of furniture and there are number of different uses that ottomans can be used for.
