If you’re short of storage in the living room, a storage footstool can be an easy way to pack a lot more into the space – but it won’t reveal its purpose, so the calm uncluttered lines of your room won’t be disturbed. We offer a range of footstools with storage. The contemporary storage footstool comes in four standard sizes, but we can make a custom size for you, too. Get in touch with the measurements you want for a quotation. Our contemporary footstool with storage can be an upholstered version, or upholstered with deep buttons. If you want classic style, opt for the Tulip footstool with storage, which has turned legs on castors. Other storage footstools in our collection include the smart Brunswick and the elegant Warwick with turned tapered legs, and for each you can select one of our four standard sizes or ask us about making a custom size for your room.
A footstool’s not just a way to ensure you can really relax when you’re in the living room. In fact, it’s a worthwhile addition for a host of other reasons. A footstool can take the place of a coffee table, which can make the whole room feel more comfortable as the finish is soft, warm and has gentler lines. All you need to do if you want to use your footstool this way is add a tray to the top to protect the upholstery from cups and glasses. A living room footstool is also a way to add in extra colour or pattern to boost the richness of your decorating scheme. As with all upholstered designs from The Dormy House, the choice of upholstery is all yours and you can find your desired fabric in our huge collection, or send us a fabric you’ve sourced to use. We’ll let you know how much fabric you need to supply. Of course, a footstool can also be a way to bring in extra storage if you opt for a version with space to stash inside.
As well as picking your favourite upholstery fabric to give your footstool the look you love, you can also choose a finish for the legs that gives it individual style. We can supply the legs of the particular footstool design you choose in their original finish, or stained or painted. We’d recommend looking at the other wood finishes in your room when you’re selecting to create a consistent finish across the space, or repeating a paint colour that you’ve used for other painted furniture to give the space a harmonious feel. You should also consider whether you want a plain upholstered top to your footstool or deep buttons. They look equally stylish, with the former having more casual appeal and the deep buttoned version a tailored look.
