Need a little inspiration?

Footstool Gallery

We know every home is different, which is why each of our footstools are entirely original. You might know the exact kind of footstool, or ottoman, that you'd like to create, or you may need a little inspiration.


    • All footstools are entirely bespoke and sizes can be adjusted within "You Design" price bands without affecting the price.
    • The legs, in solid beech, oak or mahogany, are custom turned individually in keeping with the stool size and style.
    • The design is considered as a whole from the outset - from crafting of the frame through to the fabric placement and even the trim.
    • The solid hardwood frames, oak or beech, are made as one, not of screw-in component parts.
    • We don't use foam - just traditional, natural stuffings such as hair or cocolok pads, cotton felt and a wool-based interliner.
    • The stylish features (eg. double piping/roll-top), which are included at no extra cost are numerous, details of which can be found here on the Fabric & Trim page.
    • The legs are French polished with many coats of shellac and wax to give the lustre, depth and patina of the fine antique furniture finish with the beauty of the wood grain exposed.
    • As the stools are not mass-produced, each one is made individually for you - the lead time is usually 6-8 weeks, sometimes longer during busy times but if you have a specific deadline, we will try to accommodate this.
    • Enquiries from Interior Designers are welcome

Here’s just a few of the footstools we have created for our customers. We hope they provide you with some inspiration to create something just as beautiful for your own home or business.
