The Ottoman: A quintessential piece of furniture for your luxury lifestyle and it is versatile too.

An ottoman consists of a bench or seat, padded and upholstered seat, with neither back nor arms, often used as a stool or footstool, or in some cases as an improvised coffee table. Also known as footstool, tuffet, hassock, or pouffe, some hollow ottomans are used for storage. Ottomans are often sold as coordinating furniture with other chairs.
