  • Why you need an ottoman in your life

    Putting your feet up never looked so good. Here’s why you need this versatile piece in your home right now.

    ?

    1. More than just a footstool...

    Stretching out after a long day with your feet up on an ottoman is one thing, but they’re so much more than that. Ideal in spaces that can’t fit a full-sized modular sofa, an ottoman can double as a coffee table, extra seating when entertaining and some styles even hide storage underneath, or fold out into a sleeper sofa bed. If you’re using it as a coffee table, go big to ensure it can cater to multiple purposes at once, with enough space to hold a tray with snacks and for you to put your feet up - choose a sturdy option in this case to ensure the surface is solid. Placed at the end of the bed of tucked under a desk in the study, an ottoman becomes a versatile seat when you need it, with the soft edges ensuring it doesn’t encroach on your space.

    2. Get the look

    When choosing your new ottoman, think about what you want it to add to your home. The right ottoman can make a bold style statement, adding colour and personality to your space - it’s your chance to be adventurous with colours, pattern and textures, without committing to a big-ticket item, such as a sofa. If you prefer a more coordinated look, choose the same material as your fabric or leather sofa to ensure it blends into your living zone.

    Traditional

    Hidden storage

    Comfort meets practicality in this clever style of ottoman. Simply lift the top cushion? to reveal a roomy spot for storing those extra throws and blankets over the warmer months, keeping them close at hand to pull out whenever there’s a chill in the air.?

    Bench seat

    When you need to accommodate multiple guests for extra seating, or when more than one person wants to stretch out, choose a long, narrow bench-seat style of ottoman. Narrow tapered legs will keep the floor free of heavy furniture, while a cushioned top is the perfect base for soft comfort. Luxe velvet? makes a statement, while a coordinating fabric? with your sofa will create a calming vibe. This style will also look great at the foot of your bed. ?
