Style inspiration: Ottomans

These on-trend multipurpose gems add style, decoration and storage to any space.

For so long they’ve been an under appreciated piece of living room furniture, but now ottomans are making a comeback. For first time ever, ottomans appeared in this year’s top 10 furniture searches in the Interiors Trend Report, and there is a host of wonderful designs out there, from the high street to high end.

The name ‘ottoman’ harks back to the piece’s design origins in the part of the Ottoman Empire that’s modern-day Turkey – so much more than an incredibly chic travel destination.

Today, ottomans hold a modern and universal appeal. Not only do they come in a huge range of shapes, configurations, and styles, they are multipurpose gems. They can be used as a table substitute, an extra chair, or a decorative footstool for a sofa, as well as offering extra space-saving storage.

Whether you’d like one made of luxury velvet, leather, or suede, and designed to sit in your living room, hallway or bedroom, take inspiration from these great ottoman styles.
