Gliders & Ottomans
A glider, also known as a platform rocker, is a sort of rocking chair that moves like a swing seat and has a seat attached to the base by a double-rocker four-bar linkage. As the chair swings back and forth, the non-parallel suspension arms of the linkage replicate a rocking chair motion.
Gliders are popular as nursery furniture and as an alternative to porch swings for supporting parents in feeding newborn babies. A glider is somewhat safer for pets and toddlers because pinch points are placed away from the floor.
An ottoman is a furniture item. In general, ottomans do not have backs or arms. They could be a little cushioned seat that serves as a table, stool, or footstool, or they could be an upholstered low couch. The seat may be hinged and serve as a lid for the internal hollow, which can be used to store linens, periodicals, and other objects. As part of the living room décor, the smaller version is frequently placed beside an armchair or sofa, or it can be utilized as a fireside seat.
The ottoman may be traced back to Ottoman Empire furnishings, when it was the principal piece of domestic sitting, usually built as a low wooden platform with cushions piled on top. This can be observed in the popular TV series Resurrection: Ertugrul and Establishment: Osman, both of which are based on Ottoman Empire founders.
