Ottomans with legs are a good choice for more formal decorating styles as well as when a lighter look is needed. Often ottomans are chosen to match existing seating but you may want to consider purchasing a distinctive ottoman instead. Ottomans can be used to add decorative interest to a room though a pop of color contrasting texture or a unique shape. While ottomans are primarily intended as a piece of furniture that allows us a chance to relax at the end of a busy or stressful day there's no reason why they can't be stylish too.

Whether they are reading a book watching TV or simply resting or napping people like to elevate their feet and legs.

The padded top of an ottoman permit you to do this comfortably and many use this type of furniture with their recliner rather than use the footrest that comes with the furniture.
