Footstools work in every type of decor and lend a sense of comfort and relaxation to a room. Although a very traditional piece of furniture, often seen in antique paintings of noble house interiors or on tours of heritage homes, vintage style ottomans have been reinterpreted today in many different styles to suit a contemporary design aesthetic and casual lifestyle. When you buy footstools with storage, you'll combine comfort and functionality.
Whether you want to put your feet up in front of the fire, or have a multiuse ottoman that can double not only to rest your feet but as occasional seating, we have a wide selection of footstools on our online gallery.
Antique-inspired footstools add a charming touch to the traditional decor in your living room, family room, library or bedroom. No Victorian cottage should be without at least one, and probably over the years you will want to collect several!
We have some charming carved footstools that would be perfect for anyone who loves the Victorian decor style or perhaps for a fan of shabby romantic decor. The upholstery is hand-embroidered wool needlepoint with designs including birds and flowers. Hand-applied brass nailheads add to the traditional appeal. Some of these are at very competitive price points so you can also think of them as gift items. The recipient will be sure to use it every day and enjoy remembering you when they relax with a cup of tea or glass of wine!
A storage ottoman allows you to tuck necessities away and keep the room tidy. Many are tall enough to double as extra occasional seating or they can be pressed into service as an occasional table to hold a tray of drinks. Look for one that is lower in height if you want to use it beneath your computer desk as an ergonomic support for your feet.
Other high-end footstool are upholstered in a wide range of fabrics and colors or in leather for extra durability.
