Background on the ottoman
It is a padded or upholstered piece of furniture that comes without a back rest. Often used as footstool, it is frequently placed in the lounge area. It can also serve as a chair in which case you will find it in the bedroom. The larger types sometimes double as coffee tables. Other names for the ottoman include pouf, tuffet, footstool, and hassock.
You can find hollow and stuffed ottomans. We are able to supply both. The hollow ottoman often doubles as a blanket storage space normally to be found in the bedroom or the bathroom.

Origin of the name
The footstool made from fabric was introduced around 1806. The association with the Ottoman Empire came about when Egypt under Ottoman Rule at the time, fought against France. The French invaded Egypt and exerted a form of punishment which involved pain walking. The tired Egyptians would rest their feet on the footstools, which to ensure more comfort, were stuffed.
The same comfort originally associated with the ottoman is still envisaged when thinking of an ottoman. We are committed to ensure ultimate comfort and style through custom ottomans.
