What our customers say

Patricia was amazing to work with from start to finish and was always available on the phone or over email for any questions. I deferred to her judgment regarding the piping and she found the most brilliant fabric. My footstool is flawless, so well-made and I'm sure it will be bringing me joy for decades to come. I couldn't recommend this company more highly. The design tool was very fun to play with, but if you get stuck, just give them a ring as they are so helpful and can answer any questions you might have.

Our footstool arrived safely yesterday and it is absolutely gorgeous, we're so thrilled with it and it's such a feature in the room. We're still decorating so I'll take a good photo once the room's ready to share with you.

We're so thrilled and it's been brilliant customer service from start to finish, thank you very much.

I am so thrilled with my beautiful bespoke footstool/ottoman. The quality of Patricia's work is superb, she is a true craftswoman and takes such pride and care in her work, which is reflected in the end result. The beech frame and beautiful turned legs which were stained and waxed to the colour of my choice are so superior to anything else I have seen on the market. Having done a lot of research into footstools, I discovered the Bespoke Chair Company were very competitively priced and I cannot recommend Patricia highly enough.

Patricia made me an absolutely beautiful large ottoman with Pierre Frey fabric that has taken pride of place in my new tv room. She put some wonderful attention to detail in how the fabric was laid out, and into the fabrication of the ottoman itself, all of the trimmings etc. look really wonderful. Communication with her was also top-notch, as was delivery through her arranged courier company (despite all my stairs). Thank you so much again to Patricia.

I have worked with The Bespoke Footstool Company for many years. They have upholstered antique pieces and made new chairs and stools for me and for my clients. Once again they have excelled in producing a footstool which far exceeded my expectations. The project was completed within budget and deadline and when it arrived it was superbly wrapped so that everything was in perfect order. I had asked Patricia to use an antique paisley shawl to create a large footstool on bobble legs. The shawl had a delicate fringe which I did not want to lose and Patricia carefully and cleverly hand sewed it into the border which she had also manipulated to fit all around the stool. Patricia has a real feel for the fabrics and design and understands intuitively what I am trying to achieve. She 'gets it' and always comes up with a creative solution to achieve the right result. For that reason, she is a delight to work with. Her skill and workmanship are second to none and her enthusiasm and reliability give full confidence that the finished product will almost certainly be better than the original idea.

I contacted Patricia to make an over-size footstool at fairly short notice, having already discussed what I wanted with other companies. Her products are genuinely bespoke, as compared with many other that claim to be bespoke when I fact they simply have a range of sizes and fabrics. We are delighted with the result, that it was produced quickly and is very well made. Highly recommended.


Patricia at The Bespoke Footstool Company was fantastic from beginning to end and so thorough in her work. My emails were always answered quickly and in great detail which was important when ordering a bespoke piece of furniture online. Excellent craftsmanship at a realistic price. I can highly recommend Patricia and our footstool is perfect and so beautifully made. A great addition to our home.

Deanne Thomas

Patricia uses the highest standards of traditional craftsmanship and artistry in her work and we are absolutely delighted with our beautiful new stool. It is exactly what we had hoped for and better!
Patricia was a pleasure to work with, she helped guide us through the entire process of designing the stool, ensuring we clearly understood everything from start to finish. She was great at communicating, sending updates and photos and keeping us posted on delivery times (even during lockdown!).
I would not hesitate to recommend Patricia and The Bespoke Footstool Company.

We contacted the Bespoke Footstool Company because we wanted new stools for the interior of our historic vessel Havengore, which needed to be a specific size and within our budget. Patricia made this process extremely easy for us, with support and advice on choosing fabric, piping, frame, to the finished article. We are absolutely over the moon with the results, chairs look stunning! We would highly recommend Patricia to anyone thinking of having bespoke chairs/footstools made.
