Using Statement Footstools In The Home

Looking for a completely versatile piece of furniture for your interior? Statement Footstools tick all the boxes; they are the perfect tool to inject colour, texture, and pattern into your room.

We now live in a time where we do not feel the need to match all our furniture in our homes; we prefer to reflect our personal style and make spaces increasingly feel individual. Footstools can work in all styles of interiors from Traditional to Contemporary and have many practical uses. We have a beautiful selection that will be sure to create a stunning focal point in your home.

Alternative Footstool Uses

Alternative Footstool Uses

A footstool can be used as a softer alternative to a coffee table. Use it as a different option to a wooden table in your sitting room to give a gentle and cosier scheme. Additionally, they are a practical choice if you have children running around! Choose one with a flat and firm top that will work like a table to display books, tea trays and trinkets such as the Bowmont Pheasant Mya footstool, which has a quirky animal pattern that will add a talking point to any room.

Similarly, substitute the small side tables that may feel bulky within your home with a small footstool that has a drum or square shape. Completely versatile and portable; they can be used around the house and can even be used as an extra seat. Try the Voyage Hedgerow Linen Monty footstool for a gentle touch of colour and pattern.

It is becoming increasingly popular to add soft furnishings into bathrooms as well; it’s a great way to substitute all the angular and hard surfaces. The bathroom is a place to relax and pamper yourself so why not use a footstool as a surface to hold a tray with scented candles and towels. Choose a practical fabric such as wool; this will create an effective contrast with the other textures within the room.

Narrative Footstool Patterns

Narrative Footstool Patterns

Adding a detailed print will create interest and can be used as a starting point on where to use other patterns around the room. Create a talking point in your room by adding a narrative patterned footstool into your home with a design that tells a story. The Collector Mustard Monty stool is a beautiful print of foliage and birds that could be used in a living room. This dynamic piece will command attention and can be easily moved around the room.

You can also use your hallway to create an extra seating area that will become the centre of attention. The Fortazela Onyx Mya footstool is the perfect size to sit and read a book for an hour or so. With a beautiful print of florals and foliage it will add the pop of colour and pattern that your hallway may need.

Traditional Footstool Patterns

Traditional Footstool Patterns

Use a traditional footstool in your home like the Just Fabrics Footstool in Heather; a simple shape and a classic check design that will add pattern without feeling too heavy, whilst adding a sophisticated style into your home.

Try adding a footstool to frame a strong feature like a fireplace or window in a sitting room; the resulting look will be elegant, and the footstool will become a standout piece. Use in a neutral based room to let the traditional pattern like this become a statement.

Introduce Bold Colours

Introduce Bold Colours

Choose a statement footstool that has a colour contrast with the rest of the room; the piece will then not get lost amongst the bigger pieces of furniture. Use a footstool that has bold colours to make a statement in your home.

A piece like the Helian Herd Ceres footstool would be a great addition; bright colours like orange and green will be uplifting for your room. Use this base to pick out other colours to then use throughout the room to create a cohesive look. Use in a bedroom and place at the bottom of the bed for an elegant look. Stack throws and cushions on top for the ultimate cosy display and the stool will also act as extra storage.
