Ottoman, deeply upholstered seat of any shape, with or without a back, introduced into Europe in the late 18th century from Turkey, where, piled with cushions, it was the central piece of domestic seating.
An ottoman can also be known as a footstool, tuffet, hassock, put or pouffe.
The ottoman can let you experiment with fabric and design without overwhelming a room. Take a cue from MacKenzie Childs and see how many patterns you can successfully combine.
Skirts, trim, cording, tufting, tassels and decorative feet are all part of your palette at The Mill End Store.
