A panoply of juxtaposing proportions, shapes, and tones commands attention while taking a holistic approach to the ways things live together. A multipurpose fixture like the ottoman (also referred to as foot stools or poufs) is monolithic as a feature and dimensional in its functionality while remaining firm in its abilities, requiring no further explanation as to why every room could benefit from its presence. Ottomans take a reasonable amount of aesthetic liberties, lawlessly detouring in design, to delight its onlookers, giving the space something unconventional and uninhibited.
Fixtures as hard working and multipurpose as ottomans and poufs make the perfect accent. Let’s look at a few different outdoor ottoman styles for your exterior space.
Ottomans that are designed in the traditional sense emphasize a focus on their original purpose, a comfortable place to provide a sturdy footrest. Often the traditional ottoman is designed with exposed wood or metal legs and feet or sits flat to the floor then topped with a soft cushion to finish the look.
Wicker Ottoman: Textured details and precise execution brings in a layer of casualness and an approachable mood. The natural look of the fibers are woven to create a pattern that’s visually agreeable. The Logan Outdoor Wicker Ottoman is a square ottoman with a cohesive base that sits flat to the ground. Use four to create one large square for a coffee table and footrest combination.
Teak Ottoman: Classic and versatile in style and function, teak wood ottomans convey a sophisticated presence. A convenient feature of these ottomans is that they can be used as an extension of a sofa sectional piece. The Coast Teak Outdoor Ottoman can be paired with the center or corner chair to create a posh chaise lounge.
Aluminum Ottoman: Contemporary and minimalistic, an aluminum ottoman discreetly offers extra seating for when guests visit. The Kobii Outdoor Aluminum Ottoman is wide and expansive making it a comfortable seating option. When it’s not being used as a resting place, it’s firm and sleek silhouette is able to hold an outdoor tray for beverages and bites.
The pouf ottoman, a fellow peer to the traditional ottoman is an unexpected accent with a striking presence. Outdoor poufs add variety through texture and color that brings a personal tone to the space. Designed to be lightweight, soft, and easy to move they make a more functional exterior space.
Knitted Pouf: Break up a neutral space by adding textural embellishment and bold color, the Studio Three and The Studio Four Outdoor Square Poufs brings a uniquely personal quality to an outdoor living space. The playful shapes and sizes work to scale the space while also impressive to, if present, children.
Wicker Pouf: A neutral and organic design approach, the Donut Outdoor Relaxing Pouf is versatile and formidable. A curvaceous display of textured wicker offers an intriguing rhythm. Group them along with a low sitting reclaimed teak coffee table and use for extra seating when friends and family are visiting.
Fabric Pouf: Made from Neptune™ performance fabric, the Tibbi Triangle and Jelli Round Ottomans are neutral and soft and work well in a variety of settings. Expressed in an organic shape they are perfect for indoor and outdoor use.
