The Growth Of Modular Furniture

Back in 2014, we saw huge growth in the sales of modular furniture. In our area of furniture cubes, pouffes and round stools became the fastest selling items due primarily to increasing population density and the need for functional living. City dwellers required customised storage, combined with seating. The cube footstool ottoman provided the perfect solution. 

Cube furniture fits into most spaces and can be combined to form high density seating units in public spaces such as bars, restaurants and reception areas. The trend towards increasing use of modular furniture shows no sign of abating in 2015.   

With increasing populations of non-native city dwellers, furniture tends towards low-cost and non-durable varieties whilst in-comers adapt to their new surroundings. This furniture needs to be;

  1. Low cost 

  2. Light & Portable

  3. Functional

The tastes of people within these groups are (quite rationally) towards transient furniture, that which is relatively easy to store, uplift or dispose of. Low cost pouffes or smaller footstools provide solutions to all these needs and if boxed appropriately can be used time and time again. Clearly some of this furniture will be thrown away or be disposed of in some other way. Similarly, the challenge for manufacturers of low-cost, so here at Footstools Direct we are here to meet these needs in ways that are eco-friendly and the trend this year is to increasingly provide these ranges of product.

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.
