To be functional an ottoman's height should precisely match the height of the sofa or chair that you will occupy while using it. Ottomans should be chosen in consideration of those who will most use them. For some a light ottoman will provide all the support needed. For others a larger wider piece is a better choice.
Ottoman coffee tables. Most well-made ottomans are solid enough to be used as coffee tables - and not just in an emergency! Many use their ottoman as a coffee table period! Your ottoman is usually lower in height than your chair or sofa and is perfect as a coffee table. Some ottomans have a shelf under the top that can be used to store magazines so apart from being upholstered they are more table-like than ottoman-like!
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.
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.
