Berta Pohl. Ottoman & Storage Ottoman. March 25th , 2020.
The first part of selecting an ottoman is obviously deciding where you want to use it and what kind of feeling you want it to evoke. For my purposes, velvet was the only option, as I wanted the space I was furnishing to have a relaxed and luxuriant feel.
While the ottoman was once a centerpiece in any room, covering up to three-quarters of the available wall space in its original design, it’s humbler footstool design is no less respected or coveted in the modern age. Throughout history, multiple cultures have embraced this piece of furniture, and I was about to do some embracing of my own.
One of the first things you’ll have to consider in your search for an ottoman with internal storage is what size of ottoman you’re going for. Ottomans come in a dazzling array of styles and sizes, so knowing what your space can accommodate is going to be necessary. Speaking of styles, you should probably have some concept of the color you want, as it will help narrow down your selection further.
Finding a logical area for your throw pillows and blankets can be one of your living room’s greatest challenges. Storage ottomans offer the complete package: a place for your fleece throws and cashmere blankets and a place for your feet. Your average small square black storage ottoman has enough room for about three folded blankets. If you need space for blankets as well as board games, consider a bench ottoman with storage to spare.
There are obvious advantages to leather ottomans. Leather is stronger and more resistant to tearing, bunching or staining than virtually any other textile. At the same time, leather has a soft, responsive quality that makes it an ideally comfortable covering for any kind of furniture. If you’re filling in a large space, choose a black leather ottoman as a stand-out piece. If you’re putting the finishing touches on a small room, consider a beige leather cocktail ottoman. Especially in the case of leather, the right upholstery color will positively affect the proportions in your living room.
When I was designing the living room for my new apartment, I knew that I wanted a luxurious plush feel to everything, and velvet was just the key. That’s how I started my search for a velvet ottoman and compiled this list of examples of this style. I include it here in the hopes it may be useful to others looking for their own luxurious ottoman furniture.
