Standard ottomans are basically footrests for an armchair or easy chair. That is all they are made to do. When some one says, "Put your feet up and take a load off," they are really telling you to sit down in a comfortable chair, relax and rest your feet on the ottoman that is in front of the chair.
As we have already discussed, the ottoman has so many uses, but there is still one more to mention. Some ottomans double as small storage units so that you can put magazines or anything you like inside. Of course they can be used as a seat or foot rest, but they also have the added function of doubling as a storage unit. These ottomans are completely lined inside and perfect for those who don't like to leave books, tissues or other items in the living room.
The ottomans were the favorite piece of furniture named after the Ottoman Empire, which lasted from 1299 until 1922. The Ottoman Empire spanned three continents, Western Asia, Eastern and Southeastern Europe and North Africa. World War One ended Ottoman rule in these parts of the world, but not the spread of its cherished footstool. Even after the empire lost its power, the name stuck to this very versatile and useful footrest and its popularity spread like wild fire, especially in America. In one sense, the ottomans have reconquered a large share of the world and arguably, more people know the name now than they did when the real Ottomans were in control.
Ottomans can be any color, brown is very popular in the United States, and they can be covered in any material, leather ottomans are the most popular types of ottomans in the world. Ottomans are so useful that some people actually build their furniture suites around them. Some ottomans have been in families for generations and instead of getting new ones, the family hand me down is simply re-done so another generation can feel the pleasure of one of the world's most popular and beloved piece of furniture.
That moment of rest and relaxation you have been pining for throughout the day is finally at hand. The children are down. You have just stepped out of a hot, steaming shower. You can put on the background music of your choice, or enjoy the peacefulness of the still night. You make your preferred drink, hot. You grab your local periodical, and scurry outside to nestle into your preferred seat, your outdoor rocking chair. You let out the sigh to conquer all sighs after bringing in the finishing touch to your moment of leisure. You lean back into your rocking chair, and rest those aching feet on your outdoor ottoman. If total relaxation is essential to your everyday life, the ottoman, you will find is that one piece of furniture you will not be able to survive without.
