Modern living is all about flexibility and making the most of your space, which is where multipurpose furniture comes into its own. With our houses and flats becoming smaller, living areas being more open plan and the home being the place where we live and socialise, make the most of the space with footstools and pouffes.
We've got you covered with a selection of stunning designs so you're sure to find something that's perfectly in keeping with the interior decor in your living room - whether you choose a footstool that matches your sofa or something contrasting to make a statement. How about a knitted pouffe to bring warmth and texture to the room? And if you're after a multi-functional solution that helps you make the most of the space you have available, our stylish storage footstools are definitely the way to go.
Another important factor is which material will you choose, which will be closely determined by how you will use it. Any piece of furniture that you will undergo contact will ultimately be prone to wear and tear, making durability of the fabric critical. Velvets' look luxurious and are also hard wearing, so you won 't need to compromise practicality with opulence. Be bold with a rich jewel tones like bright blue, teal and gold. Cotton fabric footstools are also hard-wearing and resistant to bobbling. Another great option is a leather footstool if you want something that is easy to clean, especially if you need a child proof home.
Leather is a low maintenance material that wears beautifully over time - and if you're on a budget, faux leather can look just as great. Leather footstools are hardy pieces of furniture that when taken care of will last a lifetime. And when it comes to creating a space that's modern and contemporary, grey is the colour of the moment. Shop our range of grey footstools to find everything from the palest shades right through to charcoal. Alternatively, consider one of our velvet footstools to bring a touch of opulence and luxury to your home.
Footstools for an Armchair
If you're after some additional seating for your living room, try adding an armchair. A stylish accent chair can really look the part and with the right footstool will feel the part too. Why not treat yourself to a matching armchair for a co-ordinated look and will also collectively act as a statement piece. Worried about the kids climbing all over the new furniture? Why not consider one of our comfy bean bags for them to jump on as much as they want?
There's no better way to warm up wood floors, and whether you go for something plain or patterned, choosing the right rug can make all the difference in getting the look you want in your living room. Be sure to take a look at our selection of cushions as well. These can have a big impact when it comes to making your house feel like a home - and if your sofa is a neutral shade, why not go for a cushion colour that pops? It's all in the detail - so when it comes to those all-important final touches, shop our selection of radiator covers for a polished finish.
