Before talking about models like Barcelona ottoman and others, let’s dive briefly into ottoman’s history.
Why do we call them Ottoman?
A bit of background about ottomans
The ottoman, a variation of a couch without a back, was first created to furnishing practices in the Ottoman Empire. An interesting fact about this piece is that it was designed for the first time as sectional furniture. The square shape and its measurements were thought to be covered by three walls. Years later they became smaller versions and were brought to Europe receiving the name from its origins.
Due to design progress in the 19th century, Ottoman models amplified their forms and included the circular and octagonal shape. Also, with the growth of the club’s life, the reproduction of ottomans increased exponentially and they began to include a couple of improvements; such as hinged seats underneath to hold magazines.
Now that we have exposed a brief background about these pieces, let’s dive into the models of ottomans.
