Ottoman is a kind of furniture that has come to our culture from the ancient East. Its modern version looks quite different, becoming more appropriate for a modern interior: the size and the material for the upholstery have changed significantly, as well as the main purpose of this piece of furniture.
Originally an ottoman was a large oriental sofa or a couch without a backrest, upholstered with tapestries and jacquard. Nowadays, it cannot be called a sofa anymore, but it is the furniture used to rest your legs or just sit, or a kind of a small couch where you can lie down. Modern living room with ottoman is a very common interior solution nowadays, and LAComfy advises you to look at a range of ways an ottoman is used in the modern interior and opt for the one suiting your living room the most.
Using a living room ottoman as a coffee table is, perhaps, the most common solution of the interior design. Firstly, it is very convenient due to its small size, does not have sharp corners, but its padding is elastic enough to hold trays with food and drinks. Secondly, this furniture piece is quite practical because the ottoman is ready to become a sofa whenever you need it.
An ottoman used as a table can have both a wooden base and legs and can be entirely upholstered with cloth. The one with wooden legs is often used only as a table, unlike the one-piece option, which can serve as an armchair or a small couch.
Another traditional application is organizing a sitting place. In this case, in the interior of the living room with ottoman, not just one piece can be used, but several, replacing chairs or armchairs. The undisputed advantage of this option is significant space-saving ability because due to the small size and lack of back- and armrests, it can be easily hidden under the coffee table.
An ottoman is the very essence of practicality. When looking at it, you may not even think there is enough space to store things, however, it can turn out to be a perfect storage area. Modern living room ottoman is the best place to hide cushions, books, magazines, TV consoles and other trifles.
