Patio ottomans are handy pieces of deck furniture
Outdoor lounge sets create a welcoming environment for entertaining guests on hot Summer days and pleasant evenings. The sofas, lounge chairs and occasional tables serve as an oasis from everyday life, where you can relax, unwind and enjoy being outdoors. Creating the ideal configuration of seating and tables for your deck or patio can be a challenge, especially if you plan to host a variety of activities that have different requirements. Modular sofas are one way to keep your options open, but they can take a little time to detach and rearrange. An easier solution is to have a few outdoor ottomans on hand. These convenient pieces of furniture serve multiple functions. You can kick your feet up and use them as a stylish footstool or sit on them as you would any other backless casual seat. You can even use them as an ad hoc side table, depending on the firmness of the surface. Some patio ottomans actually have tabletop attachments to make the conversion more formal. They're very easy to move around, so you can change up your furniture layout to accommodate the event. If space is at a premium, you might want to consider a folding ottoman that you can collapse and store when it's not being used. You can find round ottomans, square ones and many shapes in between.
Materials are important for high use outdoor furniture
Decor Outdoor carries luxury outdoor ottomans that are both residential and commercial grade. High-quality materials and construction are particularly important for furnishings that get used a lot and are apt to be exposed to the elements for long periods of time. Our premium brands use strong durable raw materials, many of which are eco-friendly, to create their high-end patio furniture collections, including ottomans. Our plantation and recycled teak frames are FSC™ certified, while metal ottomans are made from recyclable aluminum or stainless steel. Upholstered ottomans are filled with quick-drying foam and are usually covered in Sunbrella® acrylic fabric, which is both weather and fade-resistant. Slings and straps are manufactured using tear-resistant Batyline, Textilene and high-grade polyester textiles. Woven outdoor ottomans are crafted from all-weather synthetic resin wicker, which is far stronger and more durable than traditional rattan or other plant-based weaves. A few of our more modern ottomans have polyethylene bodies which can be recycled and come in a wide variety of matte and lacquered gloss colors.
