Choosing the Right Ottoman

Ottomans have become quite popular over the last several years, and they’re now used in all types of rooms.

Ottomans aren’t just to rest your feet any longer, this versatile piece of furniture can also be used as a coffee table.

While the sofa may be the star attraction, ottomans have now become the strong supporting character and in many homes steal the show.    Whether you use an ottoman for a place to put your feet, your morning coffee, or its just used to compliment the sofa, here are ways to choose the right one.

The ottoman should look good alongside the sofa. This doesn’t mean it has to be the same color or have the same features, but there should be some cohesiveness.   Try using a coordinated fabric, or a even an animal printed ottoman to bring wow factor in eye-catching appeal.

The majority of ottomans are either square or rectangular in shape, but don’t be afraid to branch out and choose one that’s round. 

Another benefit to choosing an ottoman with a shape that’s different from your sofa is it will provide good contrast. As long as the scale is right, there’s nothing wrong with picking a non-conventional shape while shopping for ottomans to go with your sofa.

Consider choosing an ottoman that fits your lifestyle and how you use your living/family room.  We hope this helps in choosing a new ottoman for your space.
