To give a more comprehensive definition of ottoman it can be said that an ottoman is a heavy ribbed fabric of a mixture of silk and wool or cotton. They are also known as the ottoman silk. According to many scholars an ottoman was the first cushioned seat without back or arms or a storage-box with a padded top.
A square ottoman looks great with a sectional that has equal lengths on both sides as well as U-shape sofas.
Quite interestingly the term is derived from the French word 'ottomane' which is the feminine version of ottoman. The word could have also been derived from the Italian 'Ottomano' Medieval Latin 'Ottomanus' Medieval Greek 'Othomanoia' from Arabic 'Utmani'. Ottoman was also the name of an empire of the late 16th century.
Your ottoman should complement the look of your room. If the room is more classic and old fashioned than a wooden ottoman will fit perfectly well. It's also available in lacquer finish or if you want to make a statement no one can go wrong with an elegant leather ottoman. For chic homeowners with a budget faux leather beds work just as fine and will still give you the comfort and flexibility of ottomans.
Pottery Barn doesn’t wimp out with ottomans. Case in point: this Caden ottoman. The large leather top on strong wooden legs makes it a perfect table or stellar seating.
