The ottomans that we produce at Footstools & More can serve a variety of different purposes and they are available in a huge choice of different colours and materials. One of the most obvious uses for our ottomans is for putting your feet up on after a tiring day’s work. They have the advantage of being somewhat larger than our footstools so they can easily take two people, or even three, sitting side by side on the sofa.
Our ottomans are also exceedingly strong. We know that they are not just for putting your feet up on, but can serve as extra seating when friends or family pop round for a coffee or snack, perhaps to watch the racing on TV, or just for a chat about life in general. Our longer rectangular ottomans can happily accommodate three adults sitting together.
Of course, our ottomans are not just for use in the sitting room, but can be used for storage in the bedroom, conservatory, dining room, and even your home office. They are great in the bedroom for storing sheets, blankets, pillowcases, and more, and they can also double as a stool for sitting in front of the dressing table. In the dining room they are a perfect place to keep napkins, tablecloths, and so on, and can also be used for storing serving trays and cutlery. Some people also use them for keeping a few bottles of Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon along with half a dozen wine glasses.
Of course, it goes without saying that they can also double as extra seating when you have guests for a meal and just don’t have sufficient dining chairs.
In your home office, you can use an ottoman to store papers and other thing connected to your business, such as drawings, if you are an architect, or even your laptop, mouse, external hard drive, and more. An ottoman keeps everything tidy and out of sight yet they are right there when you need them.
Of course, many ottomans spend their lives in the lounge, and here is where their storage abilities come in very handy once again. You can keep knitting and knitting patterns in there, along with wools, DVDs, CDs, books, papers, magazines, and of course a bottle of wine and a couple of glasses: that saves having to go out to the kitchen and find them.
If you have children, an ottoman is perfect for storing all those toys once they have gone to bed. You can put them all away and your lounge looks smart and tidy again.
At Footstools & More we also make ottoman trays. If you have a square ottoman you can have a square ottoman tray to go with it or an oblong one if you have one of our longer ottomans. Both types are available in a choice of different sizes and are produced in light oak, dark oak, wenge, charcoal, and black. Our ottoman trays are perfect for serving the coffee on, playing cards, scrabble, Monopoly, chess, draughts, or anything else.
