OTTOMANS – A TRUELY CONVENIENT FURNITURE PIECE

OTTOMANS DOUBLE UP AS A COFFEE TABLE OR PURELY AS A DECOR PIECE.

Also called footstools, hassocks, or footrests, there are so many more uses than just resting your tired feet. They are ideal for living rooms, dens, bedrooms, home offices and man caves.  Check out our gallery for ideas, or look at https://za.pinterest.com/search/pins/?rs=ac&len=2&q=ottomans

Ottomans provide:
– An excellent place for a tray of drinks or tea and     biscuits
– Extra seating when it’s needed
– A convenient surface for playing games
– A splash of colour or animal skin
– Provide extra storage inside – always handy

These flexible footstools can be moved around, against a wall or beneath a table.

Ottomans come in all shapes, sizes, fabrics and styles to complement any décor and any size constraints. In addition to the typical square or rectangular shape, think oval or round.

You can use a fabric that matches your bedding, furniture or curtains to make this versatile piece blend in – or choose a fabric that contrasts to add a dramatic accent.

Imagine an unexpected colour or bold print to call attention to this flexible piece of furniture. Or drape a pashmina, throw or scarf, over an ottoman to add flair.

Don’t forget that this is also a very convenient storage unit.  Excellent at the end of your bed to store extra blankets and pillows.  Or upholster the top in pretty pink or blue to use in a baby’s room – storage is always needed with a newborn in the house!

If you’re worried about dirt from people’s feet, ask them to remove their shoes! Or just slipcover your ottoman.

This season, add an ottoman to your interior. There are so many ways you can use it.  Don’t forget to check out our weekly blog for ideas and inspiration http://woodfurn.co.za/blog
