We are all looking forward with relish to the opportunities ahead and in particular suggest that you consider a small investment in an invaluable piece of household furniture.

Using quality sourced leathers from a tannery in Italy our footstools are lovingly crafted by our team of time served upholsters. They are available from stock and make an ideal New Year present!

When the family descends in January where they are all going to be seated? A selection of hardwood frame cube footstools are a superb way to create additional household seating. Manufactured in our UK factory, pouffes and cubes are available in both fabric and  leather selections. From as little as £75 a faux leather pouffe makes a fabulous gift at any time of the year.

When you need something upon which to rest a tray, or papers why not consider a tablestool? These splendid pieces are essentially supersized footstools which can be upholstered in either leather of fabric. They traditionally sit in front of your favourite sofa or chair, opposite a roaring fire and provide a Winter sanctuary of comfort and relaxation. People use tablestools as the centre piece of a room where they function as tables between the chairs and sofas.

Benchstools are also make great seating solutions. With an extensive choice of feet their most appropriate use is as a footrest for two to share however choosing a set of tall contemporary legs (giving a height of around fourteen inches from floor to top) provides an additional seating solution. Choosing castor feet enables you to move the benchstool with ease and a choice of ornate Queen Anne legs convey a feeling of genuine character.

Deep buttoned pouffes are a great addition to your living room or in fact any part of the home. The pouffe differs from a more traditional stool in that it has no legs and the fabric covering it goes all the way to the floor. A pouffe has an internal wooden frame and this means that it is very sturdy and safe to put your legs on or even sit on.

The other nice thing about a deep buttoned footstool pouffe is that they tend to be attractive pieces of furniture that add to the look of any room. Many people will view a foot pouffe as being just like a large sturdy cushion where you may extend and rest your legs.

Before the advent of reclining chairs and sofas people used a footstool to stretch out their legs after a hard day at work or homemaking. Early footstool examples have survived the years because most were carved from wood and have been lovingly cared for by their owners. With the passage of time footstools were reupholstered, some with needlepoint others with tapestry or quilted covers. I have always treasured my collection of footstools as valued pieces of antique furniture in their own right.

Small wooden footstools are wonderful when displayed on a table shelf or a large bookcase . You will find a lot of valued footstools in the homes of antique dealers. Such people are in the business because they treasure what they sell. And with the passage of time precious articles can accumulate. Things look better on a table or shelf albeit on different levels, perhaps with a glass frontage or spotlight to aid display. Instead of clutter a display of footstools creates interest, a focal point for guests at a gathering or party. They are indeed museum pieces for the home, a valuable journal of days gone by.

By the middle of the twentieth century footstools became large square hassocks. And yet, these wonderful pieces were built to last footstools before that era are still plentiful today at a good price. They were not thrown away, instead, they were kept to enjoy for the beauty they are. From me to you, add a footstool to your home, it’s a fabulous conversation piece that really does create a home sweet home statement.

Our Suggestions to Buying a Footstool Online

19 Aug

Cubes

Today the footstool is emerging as a separate class of furniture in its own right. It can now be used as something to sit on, place something on, hide something in, or as a decorative piece for an entire room.

With a choice so wide there is no better place to search for your new footstool than on the internet.  The range is large enough to satisfy any discerning furniture shopper and with fabric or leather footstools to choose from online shopping  is unsurpassed.  The footstool can be ordered in various sizes.  Its shape can be organised to fit into the smallest or largest of spaces and the height of the footstool can be varied by an excellent choice of appropriate legs and feet.  No suite of sofas and chairs should ever be without a footstool.  The footstool should be a central point of  relaxation, becoming an oasis of calm after yet another weary day at work.  Even if you can only grab yourself a few minutes of “quality time” ensure that you gather up your footstool and take the weight off your feet just for a few moments.

Style is also an important part of choosing a footstool, since you will want the piece to compliment the rest of your decor. Will a boxy footstool that is flush with the ground co-ordinate better with the clean lines of your existing furniture, or is your style more traditional, making a footstool with carved legs a better choice? When selecting a footstool it is a good idea to apply pressure to it or to sit down on it to make sure it is sturdy. Don’t forget to measure the width of the footstool to make sure it won’t be too large and feel awkward in your space. Measure the height as well to ensure that your feet will rest comfortably when sitting on your chair or sofa.  Price is a consideration and the internet provides the ideal platform from which to compare the market place. In this way you will soon find the perfect footstool custom designed to your taste, specifications, and your budget. No matter where you decide to purchase your footstool, or even if you decide to build one yourself, function, style, and value are the most important elements.
