Standard ottomans are basically footrests for an armchair or easy chair. That is all they are made to do. When some one says, Put your feet up and take a load off, they are really telling you to sit down in a comfortable chair, relax and rest your feet on the ottoman that is in front of the chair. Storage ottomans are just that: they are built for storage. The padded top is usually hinged and can open up to reveal an open space in heart of the ottoman in which people generally store blankets for use with the easy chair and ottoman.
