Ottomans – Our Pick of the Best

10 images

Ottomans originated in Turkey in the 18th century (when it was the Ottoman Empire) and were used to provide extra seating in large households. Nowadays they are ideal for seating, storage or even used as a coffee table in the living room. Sharing most of the characteristics of the humble footstool, an ottoman can come in all shapes and sizes – from button-backed versions with wooden legs to simple rectangular storage boxes. They are ideal placed at the foot of a bed (to house all your bedding and pillows) or in the centre of a living room (to act as a coffee table). Take a peek at our pick of the best ottomans around.
