Upgrade your living space with antique poufs or ottomans. During the 20th century, people primarily used ottomans as footrests, storage systems, stools, and children’s chairs. However, the name itself comes from the Ottoman Empire.

Initially, the ottoman began as an upholstered seat with no arms or a back. The ottoman was a creative way to combine floor seating with mats and cushions. When merchants brought the ottoman to Europe from Turkey in the 18th century, people began combining ottomans with other furniture pieces.

Today you can explore a wide selection of antique ottomans for sale in various styles and sizes, so you’re guaranteed to find one that speaks to you.

How to Choose Your Ottoman

Over the years, poufs and ottomans have seen dramatic changes. For example, mid-century modernists began reimagining the ottoman in the 1940s with padded tops and angled wooden legs.

These new ottomans featured new leather upholstery, and artists often designed them to match lounge chairs. However, many still enjoy the neo-classical ottomans from the 18th or 19th century with intricately carved legs, gilding, and clawed feet.

When deciding between poufs or antique ottomans, it’s essential to understand their differences.

First introduced by the French during the 1840s, poufs are smaller and usually stuffed. Although you can use poufs as a table in a pinch, they are less sturdy than ottomans.

A woven or shaggy pouf can is excellent for small, cozy rooms, along with patterned throw pillows and blankets. A structured ottoman for a library, home office, or study. Our antique collection of ottomans and poufs will enhance any space’s warmth and makes a great addition to your evening cocktail.

You can also use storage ottomans to hold items like blankets. Whether as a footrest or extra seat, antique ottomans can complement any room’s decor.
