Lovingly Handmade Footstools

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.

I love this chestnut faux leather footstool displayed at the top of the screen! It is valued for the beauty of the mahogany wooden legs and beautiful aesthetic qualities such as the brown faux leather. 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. Footstools create interest, and provide focal point for guests at a gathering or party. They are indeed museum pieces for the home, a valuable journal of days gone by.

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.

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.
