Kids love ottomans - and vice versa. Ottomans are child friendly - if a small child falls off an ottoman he or she is unlikely to come to any harm. They can be upholstered in child-friendly fabrics and can offer them a playing surface when they are sitting on the floor. They can be used to sit in front of the TV with a games controller and used as a hurdle in the hall for racing or as a horse when riding!

Getting to know you. If its use as a footrest or as seating is not sufficient relaxation ottomans come in many different sizes and double sized version can be used for relaxation or to cuddle up to your favorite person. They are armless loveseats so the only way to avoid falling off the edge is to hold onto each other - or so you can claim!

I love this yellow quilted piece. It's got a Mies Barcelona vibe brightened by vibrant color that's a fantastic fit with the white room and gorgeous view. This is a great example of how one low piece of furniture can add a whole new aesthetic dimension to a space.

Cutouts in the rear of a media console do more than allow cords through. The openings also permit much-needed ventilation. Electronics get hot when in use and you'll want air to flow around them and vent outside the cabinet. This reduces the risk of fire and can lengthen the life of the components.

Sort your seating. What good is a home cinema without cinema-quality seating? With a home control system and D-Box technology you can have your seating rumble and vibrate in time with the action up on the big screen! Another option to consider especially if the room will be used by children is soundproofing. Not only does soundproofing mean you can turn up the volume; it also ensures that the little ones’ shouts of excitement won’t be heard by anyone next door.

This living room gets added drama with a white back-painted glass mantel and fireplace surround that replaced a traditional paneled fireplace. The glass-and-metal mantel is kept sleek thanks to minimal accessories. The key here is to vary the height of the accessories to keep the eye moving along the space.

There are many types of ottomans that might suit one's home and purpose and give the room the charm one is looking for. They are available in all sizes - starting from standard size to small and even to oversize. Many beautiful ottomans are covered with leather. They are mostly used as storage benches and footrests are constructed with a sturdy hardwood frame. They are mostly wrapped with luxurious leather or beautiful designer fabrics.

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.

Let the fireplace float. By placing windows around the fireplace (and placing the metal chimney on the outside) there's little to block the light and view so the interior stays more open and bright. The fireplace seems to float in the wall rather than being anchored to one spot by a heavy masonry chimney.

A square ottoman looks great with a sectional that has equal lengths on both sides as well as U-shape sofas.
