Ottoman Options we Love!

We love ottomans!  But not all ottomans are created equal… and not all rooms need the same ottoman.  Don’t fret!  There are so many options available pick your size, shape, fabrics and leathers, storage and more- it’s impossible to not find just the right fit for your space.  Here are some tips to help narrow down the field to find exactly what you are looking for!

Size and Shape

square-of-circle

Sizing of ottomans is directly correlated to the size of the related pieces in the room.   If it is going in front of a chair it needs to fit the chair, a sofa it needs to be a cocktail ottoman, in a sectional…well there are so many different configurations out there there’s no one size fits all rule- just be proportionate. 7511-sectrs-uptown

This sectional to the right is large but doesn’t have a huge amount of space between the chaise and the sofa, this square fits perfectly.

 

Fabrics and Leather

7406rs

An ottoman is a great opportunity for an accent fabric to tie the whole room together.   Coordinate or match fabrics to accent pillows on the sofa or chair for a polished look!    It’s tempting to always go fabric on an ottoman-to add a punch of pattern-but don’t overlook leather.

5610_501_504_507_509_x

5610_dtl5_xLeather on an ottoman is a great way to add texture and break up an all upholstered room. Leather is also super durable and easy to clean-a great material for an ottoman that will double as a coffee table.  The Metal Works collection by Legacy Furniture shown above has a leather topped ottoman with a removal train inset, perfect for the ottoman/coffee table combo!    Another great combo is to go with leather/fabric collaged ottoman.

depot_storage_ottoman_2

The storage ottoman to the right by King Hickory is a great way to add a dash of leather, just on the base and contrast with a fun fabric or you can do it in reverse!

 

Storage and Cubes

7421-sectrs

Ottoman cubes are so fun and versatile!  They can float around the room as needed or be bunched together in front of a sofa or sectional.  In great fabrics and leathers these cubes are always a hit!

And then there are the accessories!  Smaller pieces are great ways to add details that can be rotated with the next style wave.   Introduce a hint of metallic and a little glitz- look for mirrors, lighting, candle holders- small touches will go a long way to be on trend!

Every room can handle a little glitz!  Stop to see how we can add metallics to your space!
