What is an Ottoman Bed?


It's a funny word, Ottoman.  Doesn't mean a lot in English really, or have any obvious word origin in the way that footstool is obviously a stool for the feet or chaise lounge a long chair, but Ottoman?


An ottoman is a piece of furniture consisting of a padded, upholstered seat or bench having neither back nor arms, often used as a stool or footstool, or in some cases as an improvised coffee table. An ottoman can also be known as a footstool, tuffet, hassock or pouffe. So that's what an ottoman is, but where does the word come from?  It is said that ottoman was introduced into English in the "footstool" sense in 1806 (probably from the identical French word, which also denotes a type of textile fabric), because the ottoman's typical use in a reclining position was associated in Europe with the Orient, in line with fashionable Turkish style."


So, an Ottoman is actually a footstool (we calls ours the Bed Box as it has a bed rather than storage space inside).  But the name has come to symbolise so much more than that of course.  So a storage bed is also know as an ottoman bed.


Whether you call it a storage bed or an Ottoman Bed, what you're getting is a beautifully made, practical piece of storage furniture with the bonus of a having a bed built in which lifts up to reveal masses of space for storage.

 

What is a Pillow Top Mattress?


Pillow Top Mattresses are becoming the newest fad in sleeping arrangements but what exactly is a pillow top mattress and how does it benefit you? A pillow top mattress is a regular mattress with a soft cushiony top on it to give you added comfort.


Pillow top mattresses are becoming more and more popular because they let you have the support of a firm mattress with the comfort of a soft cushion on top and you don't have to mess around with awkward mattress pads that come loose and get you all tangled up in them. Although mattress pads do relatively the same thing, pillow top mattresses take away the extra time spent and frustrations of putting a mattress pad on and keeping it on.

A pillow top mattress runs a little bit more than the average mattress but it is well worth it in the long run. You spend one third of your life in bed so you want to make sure that you are comfortable and get a good night rest every night, enabling you to face the other two thirds of your life with ease.


Comfort is always number one when you are buying a mattress but you also have to think about your back and neck and make sure that you take care of them as well.
