Tuck away seating: If you are trying to conserve space, ottomans are a perfect solution for seating that can be pulled out when needed. Individual seats or ottoman benches that have casters or rollers beneath them make this type of seating ideal when entertaining. When not needed, tuck seating under the table, and the ottoman now serves a whole different function.
Foot rests will never go out of style: The original intent of an ottoman is to place your feet on them, and this tradition will never change. Decide how much room you have for yours. Ottomans dimensions are available in sizes as wide as a couch to small, square and petite sizes.
Children friendly: Ottomans that have kid friendly fabrics such as denim or tweed can easily be used for a flat surface for kids to play on top of while they sit on the floor. Larger ottomans can be used for board games and playing with friends, without disrupting the main dining table or communal area in your home.
