Top Five Footstools For Christmas

With many years trading experience behind us we can justifiably claim to be the leading UK manufacturer of footstools. All our products are built in the UK by experienced craftsmen who deliver exceptional quality as standard. As the home of the UK’s most trusted online retailer for footstools, pouffes and ottomans what do we recommend as the best buys this Christmas?

Small leather footstools are an ideal present as they are compact and have the dual advantages of being ideal footrests and unobtrusive footstools. They are solidly built and will last for many years if handled with care. All small leather footstools are handcrafted by time served upholsters who use the finest Italian leather. They are available from stock and make ideal stocking fillers!

Pouffes and Cubes represent superb value for money and are a great way to create extra seating when the family descends at Christmas. Manufactured using a hardwood frame and composite foam, pouffes are available in either leather or fabric. From under £100 a contemporary fabric pouffes makes a fabulous gift during the festive season.

Bench Stools are wonderful foot rests and can also be selected as seating. The choice of feet determines their most appropriate function: – a set of tall contemporary legs gives a height of around fourteen inches (from floor to top) making an ideal seating solution. A choice of ornate Queen Anne legs conveys genuine character and makes a footstool for two to share.

Tablestools are essentially large bench stools and make ideal coffee tables and are practical footstools. At Christmastime many people use tablestools as the centrepiece of the room. Here they act as functional tables between chairs and sofas where nuts, crisps and nibbles are placed on trays. They are softly upholstered and make fabulous foot rests for your guests when they fall asleep in front of the television during “The Great Escape” or “The Sound of Music ''.

Where to store all those Christmas presents? In a large storage ottoman of course! Large ottomans upholstered in either fabric or leather are ideal for tidying away toys, magazines or linen and their presence enhances any room. Wrap your presents then open the lid on Christmas Day to reveal all your gifts of the season! A smaller storage solution would be the cube storage ottoman. Not only is there a large storage capacity beneath, with the lid down the cube ottoman makes a sturdy and practical seat.  If you only have one gift to buy this year then you cannot go far wrong with the acquisition of a small cube ottoman!

Lovely footstool received promptly. My young granddaughter has claimed it as her seat so I won't get to rest my feet when she visits?

Ordered some legs for a sofa. Good value and quality. Dimensions slightly different from those advertised but we were ok with this as match with existing legs was good

Love it ... great design, great quality, great service. The fact that one can have samples before ordering is really useful ... I chose lime green (which I would never have chosen without having had a sample before).

Amazing service from Footstools Direct. I first ordered some free leather swatches which arrived within 7 days. I then ordered a beautiful dark brown leather stool at a very reasonable price, which I am delighted with. It is a real quality, well made item, which arrived within 2 weeks with the free delivery option. I cannot recommend the company nor the product more highly.

We honestly could not be happier with our new footstools. We looked at several online suppliers and this was the only company who offered plenty of choice and reasonable prices. The ordering process was easy and the delvery was quick. I highly recommend this company.
