An Ottoman is a comfortable piece of furniture and a spectacular addition to the modern interior that has come to us from the East. Time significantly influenced the appearance of this attribute.
Ottoman was the most common in Turkey. In ancient times it was a truly luxurious bed on classic low legs, decorated with ornate carvings, complemented by a huge number of pillows. Modern designers offer to use the pouf in the interior of the bedroom or living room, as a separate attribute, and as an addition to the sofa, the dimensions of which for some reason do not suit the owners.
Ottoman in combination with modular sofas is a real designer. Only two parts, but they can be combined in a variety of ways, modifying the space, changing the quality of the room itself, and sometimes the concept of the interior of the bedroom or hallway.
Sofas, beds and chairs are considered large furniture, which takes up a lot of space. Therefore, choosing the next attribute of home comfort, initially pay attention to the size and design features. An ottoman will not take much space, but it will still significantly affect the functionality of the furniture and the style of the room itself.
Modern design concepts involve the use of traditional pouf as the original table. Most often, the furniture of this format complements the modular "designers".
Such a coffee table will effectively complement the living room, hallway and even the bedroom. An ottoman is much smaller than any coffee table. Designers offer to give a pouf practicality through the use of leather upholstery. Ideally, the pouf is placed in the corner sector or in the center, placing there magazines, toys, various household trinkets and even food trays.
The traditional use of the pouf is a place for sitting (in the corner, in the center, anywhere in the room). The chair can not always be moved, the sofa does not always fit in small-sized rooms, and the bed is designed for sleeping, not seating.
Ottoman perfectly cope with the function of the couch to rest the feet. This is usually a leather ottoman, small in size, of elongated shape. If necessary, the furniture can be used as a coffee table or a traditional seating area. Often there are models of the sliding type.
For those who like to use the working space of the bedroom or living room to the maximum, the ottoman with the function of the chest is suitable. Despite its miniature size, a stylish leather pouf can be very roomy.
