Ottoman furniture was one of the greatest things to come out of an empire that lasted from 1299 to 1922. When the ottoman was first invented, it would often cover a good portion of the walls of the room, often three out of four of them. In that time they were armless but still had back, but it wouldn’t take long before the backs were a thing of the past, and the overall size of the ottoman started to be reduced.
Over the centuries the ottoman would first become a smaller couch, and then a backless bench, and then small pieces of corner furniture before eventually becoming the footstool we all know and love today. None of the previous styles disappeared; they simply became yet another incarnation of the ottoman.
Multiple features were added throughout the ages as well, including legs, interior storage, flip-top lids, and more. When I went looking for an ottoman, I knew that I wanted a classic round design that was large enough to serve multiple purposes. The ottomans below are what I found on that search.

How To Pick A Large Round Ottoman
Selecting an ottoman can be something of a challenge once you realize just how many varieties, styles, and additional functions there are available. Settling into a size and a shape can help reduce the number of available options quite a bit, but you’re still going to need to design a list of the features you want to have. One of the most common features that people seek is internal storage space, a feature that is commonly available in multiple styles.
Some prefer certain colors or materials for the upholstery or may want their ottoman to have legs, or lack them. The best way to select a large round ottoman is to start by considering your available space, and then moving on to decide what features you want and what color will best serve your space. Once you have this list compiled you’ll be able to narrow down your options to just a few hundred items easily, and then let your preferences take it from there.
