Beautiful Ottoman Coffee Tables to Maximise Your Lounge Space

Lounge is the place to relax and unwind a day’s hassle. It’s the most stress free corner of the house for comfort and relaxation. What could be better than putting lounge multipurpose furniture of Ottoman says Bernie de Le Cuona & Brian J. McCarthy.
It would be a mistake to think of the ottoman as nothing more than a lowly footstool. Produced in a wide array of shapes, sizes, and materials, it’s the ultimate go-anywhere, do-anything piece. An ottoman can serve as a side table, a cushy cocktail table, or a playful extra seating element for parties.
“It’s the most usable, versatile piece of furniture,” says textile designer Bernie de Le Cuona, adding that the ottoman, which gets its name from a deeply cushioned low seat found in Turkey, can work in any room of the house. “You could have one bedside, to place a lamp and a cup of coffee on,” she says. “I even have ottomans in my bathroom.”
Designer Brian J. McCarthy sometimes uses ottomans as improvised pedestals. “I make these little tables capes on them, and it creates another layer in a room,” he says. Larger ottomans, he adds, support multifaceted relaxation—yes, you can put your feet up, but “you can also place a tray on it and serve drinks.” Let us have a look at some of the most versatile ottomans for your lounge space.

Cooking With Color: When to Use Black in the Kitchen

Black is a classic hue in fashion — there’s the little black dress and the debonair black tuxedo, and we are sure that you are not the only one out there with way more pairs of black shoes in your closet than there are days of the week. Yet when it comes to decorating our homes, most of us tend to shy away from using black as more than a mere accent color. Yes, black can suck a good deal of light out of a room, making it appear cramped and dreary, but when used successfully it can be crisp, dramatic and elegant.

 

Check out eight gorgeous kitchens that feature this darkest of hues, along with tips on how to work with black in the kitchen, brought to you by Spacio Design Team.

Black absorbs rather then reflects light, so if you are using a large amount of the hue in a space, try to counter it with plenty of light — preferably of the natural variety. The high white ceiling, skylights and wall of sliding glass doors in this kitchen more than balance out the black.

But you don’t need to have walls of windows or skylights galore to make black work in your kitchen. There are other ways to balance it. For instance, this beautiful kitchen features cabinets that have a black-washed look that makes them less heavy and monolithic than cabinets painted solid black. And because the black is paired with plenty of light neutrals and reflective materials, this kitchen feels light and open.

Here, the large modern black pendants over the island contrast nicely with the vintage exposedbrick walls. So simple, and yet the effect is dramatic and elegant. The restrained yet rich color palette of blacks, browns and brick red is also very successful.

If you favor a black & white kitchen, we recommend adding another bold color or accents of warm neutral browns, taupes or beiges to keep it from appearing stark and cold. The wood floor in this kitchen warms things up nicely.

Use black to call attention to your kitchen’s interesting architectural details, finishes or fixtures.Against a light backdrop, these elements will stand out, whereas everything white will recede into the background.

Consider the sheen of the black surfaces in your kitchen, too. Matte black absorbs light and tends to look flat and dark. Glossy surfaces will reflect light back into the space — but you can really see the texture of the surface, so make sure it’s something you want highlighted. This kitchen has a nice mix of shiny and matte surfaces, and the crisp black really defines the space.

Since it’s a neutral, black works with any other color you want to introduce. These lemon-yellow counter stools add a nice twist to this handsome black kitchen.

Black brings a lot of drama to a kitchen, so it requires little ornamentation. You really can’t go wrong with high-quality finish materials and workmanship combined with a restrained palette heavy on black.

Most paint manufacturers carry a true black hue, but be sure to check out the many shades of black available that have subtle color differences. Some appear cooler, with hints of green, blue or purple; some are warmer — more of a brownish black. These subtle differences will be more noticeable in abundant daylight. As with any new paint color, it’s a good idea to test a few different blacks in the actual room you plan to use it in to see how the color looks in the space and changes throughout the day and night.
