In contrast to the sofa, which is simply a practical piece of furniture, the leather stool is a unit with some secrets and history. The eastern nations who designed these comfy items even have legends about the leather stool. It is said that Princess Ottoman, who lived in ancient times, was famous for her beauty, and even the city was named in honor of the elegant woman.
It was the city of artisans and craftsmen, masters of excellent furniture. Even kings bought their products to be placed in palaces. Their leather stools were created to enhance the beauty of the interior elements and the comfort of a person who uses them. The first ottomans in Europe were brought from Persia. Soon these comfortable pieces of furniture could be found in every home.
Small benches upholstered in soft leather were a symbol of chic and wealth in a family. Leather was chosen for the stool because this natural product has one amazing property: it only gets better over time. Upholstered with natural leather, beautiful stools are of high quality and are quite expensive. They fit perfectly into the classic and versatile interiors with oriental motifs.
They can easily be transformed into footstools, benches or even coffee tables. The budget version is an ottoman made of synthetic leather. This material looks like a natural one, but sometimes costs less. Certainly it doesn’t compare to the softness and durability of real leather furniture, and if you have the option to buy it for less, use it.
