In the never-ending season of "eat, drink, and be merry," I can’t help but confess that sometimes I just want to pull up a chair and take a load off.
Holiday parties are great. Love them. But sometimes standing in heels for a couple of hours can get tiresome. Solution? Sit! But where? If there is ever a time to have some extra seating around, this is it. An ottoman can be just the ticket. The funny thing is, not many people seem to use that word anymore. During a few preparatory phone calls for this article I found myself repeating it … “Ottoman. OTTOMAN.” Then I started to improvise: Pouf, cube, bench … Ahhh, yes, we have those!
It's true that the ottoman seems to be a much more stuffy word than pouf or tuffet – a holdover from the days of "Leave It To Beaver." That is, unless you put some fabulous adjectives in front of it – and of course the description must deliver. Could anyone resist a sunset orange tufted leather ottoman? Not me.
