Ott to trot
If you feel there’s something missing in your lounge, hall, bedroom or study, you might be looking for a fabric ottoman. These super versatile, trendy pieces are the perfect complement to a plush living space.
Most famously, the ottoman is used as a footrest. If this will be the primary use of yours, you’ll want to look at a traditional ottoman design like the Carnaby. It’s high enough to comfortably raise your feet, but small enough to slot next to the sofa or armchair out of the way. A strong, durable fabric is needed here – try the Belfast which is 95% polyester and 5% linen, which will weather shoes and bare feet alike. The Globe ottoman is another fun option with its simple, rounded and modern shape, made from hardy polyester fabric.
Ottomans are hard little workers – not only do they treat your feet, but they can also hide extra throws, cables, books and pretty much anything you want at hand but out of sight. The storage ottoman like the Pebble are incredibly useful for this kind of organisation and also provide an extra comfy seat. The textured fabric used on the Pebble gives a warm look and feels great to the touch. If it's local craftsmanship that you’re after, look no further than the Knox fabric ottoman, customisable in over 66 fabrics and part of the ever popular Knox range of sofas and armchairs.
You can use ottomans to inject a little pop of colour or statement style to an otherwise neutral or minimalist room. This is where fabrics really come into their own, delivering prints, colour and rich texture to the space. The Retro fabric ottoman is one such piece – with organic mid-century lines and a pop of colour in Dusty Rose Ritz polyester. The Onyx handle fabric ottoman is another cool and quirky piece. Covered in durable polyester with a leather handle, the cylindrical shape is perfect as a seat, side table or footrest – and it’s portable!
