Ottomans do so much more than look nice. Much more.
They enhance a large chair. They complete a room. And they made a great landing pad for your feet when you stretch them out while sitting in a big, comfy club chair.
A club chair without an upholstered ottoman is kind of like cake without ice cream. Either one is good by itself, but add the other and they both become so much better.
To match or not to match
When shopping for an upholstered ottoman, it will help you to keep certain things in mind. Feel free to exercise some creativity and look for an ottoman that will enhance the look of your club chair without being a perfect match. Of course, many swivel club chairs here will offer a matched upholstered ottoman.
What to Keep in Mind
If the ottoman will substitute for a coffee table, make sure it made from a durable material that is easy to care for. Leather upholstered ottomans work quite nicely. And finally, avoid using cream colored or white ottomans, even if your club chair is white or cream colored. Remember, it is a footrest, and extremely light color fabric or material will show stains in a hurry.
