Upholstered furniture should be as comfortable and functional as possible. A sofa with an ottoman is a great option that combines home comfort and practicality.
Ottoman - an original object invented long before our days. Once upon a time, such interior elements adorned oriental palaces. In those days, this was the name of exquisite upholstered furniture without a back. Carved legs, gilding, embroidered silk pillows and other attributes of luxury created the appropriate atmosphere.
The sultans rested on this sumptuous furniture throughout the day. It was also used for ceremonial receptions. Oversized models were decorated with tapestries, chic capes and other elements. Regal persons sat on them. Small models served as footrests.
Today, such a vacation is available not only to the sultans. Anyone can buy a sofa with an ottoman and enjoy its convenience. After all, after a long day at work, you really want to relax while watching an interesting movie or reading a fascinating book.
Features of modern models
A modern sofa with an ottoman - a tradition reinterpreted. Models offered by manufacturers have become more functional, acquired new forms of expression. Luxurious but impractical fabrics have been replaced by reliable materials that guarantee high wear resistance of products. The size of the products has become much smaller. In addition, ottomans are no longer used as an independent nap (like an ottoman). They only act as an addition to the main furniture ensemble.
As for the configuration, today there are two main options
- First - modular, the most common. In this case, the sofa with an ottoman is a single structure that forms the letter G.
- The second option is making an ottoman as a separate element … Here she can perform the function of a large pouf. The separate ottoman can be moved up to the couch if you feel like stretching your legs while watching TV. This will come in handy in case of the arrival of guests. So you can seat everyone with maximum comfort, creating a cozy atmosphere of friendly conversation. If desired, the pouf can be used as a separate seating position. Then the sofa turns from a corner to a straight one, freeing up additional space and providing freedom of movement around the room. Sometimes a retractable ottoman is included with the corner sofa. Such an element can, if necessary, make the size of upholstered furniture to the maximum.
Some people buy an ottoman exclusively as an independent item, made in the same design as the sofa. So, in the interior of a bedroom or living room, a beautiful pouf appears that does not stand out from the general style.
Also, the ottoman can be used as an original soft table for tea parties with friends. You can put magazines, souvenirs and any items that create comfort in your home on the pouf.
Designers amaze with flight of imagination. Ottomans are not limited to rectangular and square shapes. On request, you can purchase a round or oval pouf. The upholstery can match the material of the sofa, or it can contrast effectively with it if it looks appropriate in your apartment.
Leather models are very popular. They look modern and presentable, are particularly practical and durable. Products made from velor and other velvety fabrics are also very popular with customers. Such things allow you to add a touch of oriental flavor to the interior, add softness and chic to it.
Color and texture solutions are not limited to this. And connoisseurs of exquisite classics, and lovers of non-standard solutions, and those who want to create an atmosphere of royal luxury in their home - anyone can find a suitable option among the range of manufacturers.
