Just as a coffee table is likely to serve as a footstool at some point, the ottoman invariably serves as a makeshift coffee table, too. As a resting place for legs and feet, an ottoman needs to be easy to clean and durable. For its durability and functionality, ottoman leather has almost become synonymous with ottoman furniture. Leather bears up well under heavy use, and its patina only improves with age. Ottoman leather suits both contemporary and traditionally decorated rooms, too, adding texture, rich color and style.
Quite interestingly, the term is derived from the French word 'ottomane', which is the feminine version of ottoman. The word could have also been derived from the Italian 'Ottomano', Medieval Latin 'Ottomanus', Medieval Greek 'Othomanoia', from Arabic 'Utmani'. Ottoman was also the name of an empire of the late 16th century.
