Round Leather Ottomans Here: Comparison & Personal Piece of Advice!

Since the introduction of ottoman style furniture in 1299, leather has been a common and popular material to use in their construction. The Ottoman Empire valued this material for its comfort, breathability, and durability as one of their primary furniture pieces. In those days the ottoman practically encircled the room, usually dominating three out of the four walls in any space it occupied.

How To Pick A Round Leather Ottoman

The first thing to realize when picking out a leather ottoman is that not all leather is actually leather. “Leather” ottomans actually come in a broad range of materials, including natural leather of course. There is also Polyurethane leather, also known as vegan leather, which gives all the look and feel of leather without the moral concerns.

Additional options include bonded leather, a polyurethane material that contains real leather components to give it a more natural feel, and bicast leather, which is a leather backing that’s been topped with a polyurethane leather to add durability and beauty to a piece. All of these are available in a dizzying array of colors and can be found in almost any variety of ottoman.

You’ll also have to consider whether you want your ottoman to have long legs or short, interior storage, and what kind of material you want the interior frame to be made of. Once you’ve decided on this, you should be able to narrow your search down sufficiently to make an easy choice.

Made from real leather, secured with brass upholstery nails, and beautifully stained wood, it was a piece of furnishing that anyone would be proud to have.

The low, broad design of this ottoman brings a unique mid-century design to any room.

Wooden legs are finished with an espresso stain to provide an excellent accent, along with the brass upholstery tacks that give it a classic feel. Copious internal storage means this piece has versatile applications in addition to its use as a coffee table, footstool, or seat.

First Impressions

This piece struck me nearly as hard as the first one, its construction was simply beautiful, and it had an extensive range of function that made it a great choice for my lounge. The internal storage space that I was looking for was present, and the lack of tufting on the surface meant that it would be even easier to clean. It was quite sturdy, and it was easy to tell it would put up with the abuse of constant daily use.

6. Modway EEI-2224-WHI

All-over tufting is the heart of this ottomans design, bringing a classic appearance to a modern design. Upholstered in vinyl upholstery this piece is available in 16 individual colors, making it a perfect fit for any environment. Thickly padded for comfort this ottoman is a great addition to any space and suitable for use as a seating space, a footstool, even a coffee table. The frame of this piece is composed of mixed hardwood, making it resilient and durable. Four non-marking legs protect the surfaces its placed on.

First Impressions

I was really drawn to this piece for its overall design, though I quickly noticed it lacked any form of internal storage, the low comfortable design quickly made up for that. The piece was well cushioned, suitable to sitting in or on for long periods of time and was otherwise perfect for my application. I opted not to purchase it, however, due to the nature of the material it was upholstered in. Hookah lounges involve the use of hot coals, and vinyl melts when exposed to high heat, so I knew that going with one of the true leather materials was the better choice.

Features

  • Vinyl upholstery

Further, I was able to pick it up in multiple colors to add some variety to our space in a way that also kept it consistent. These pieces are all excellent examples of what you can get in a round leather(ish) ottoman, and all of them would serve any home beautifully. Whether you’re looking for a footstool, a sitting space, a coffee table, a storage space, or all of the above, there’s no way to go wrong with an ottoman.
