And do you remember the puppy of the cursed royal court in Disney´s Beauty and the Beast being turned into a classic tiny ottoman? And yes, about that, ever thought that after the curse was broken, Belle and the prince might have had to take a look on Decoist and a trip to the store? As all their furniture and utensils tuned into people. But, enough about contemporary American lore and back to the ottoman.
One doesn’t have to look far for ottomans: iconic designer chairs of the 20th century were given this addition, such as the Eames lounge chair or Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona chair.
In essence, this is what a living room is lately: a place where seats and table surfaces can melt together as a lounge, and the ottoman is a part of this philosophy.
Whether round or square, plush or leather, ottomans bring a touch of cozy and subtle Orient to the living room, the bedroom, a dressing room or your special reading place. A popular chromatic approach: an ottoman of intense color can become the focal point and comply in nuance with the couch pillows, vases or paintings.
