Bespoke and Made to Measure Footstools

If you’re looking for a footstool that is not currently listed as a product on our website then we CAN help.

We have over 30 years of experience in making beautiful footstools and our team are used to handling enquiries for all sorts of bespoke requests.

As we make everything to order to our customers specifications we can usually accommodate most things – and, above all, we do love a challenge!

What counts as a Bespoke or Made to Measure Footstool?

Your footstool may fall into our bespoke or Made to Measure category if you wish to change one or more of the following things.

Things we can tailor to your needs.

Changing the dimensions

We can easily alter the dimension of your footstool and can give advice. You could change the height, width and/or depth of your footstool. Other ways to increase or reduce the height may be to change the pad height or simply choose a different leg height.

Change the legs/feet

All of our stock legs (sometimes called feet and vice versa) can be easily swapped. We have access to many other styles of leg and we may be able to track down exactly what you are after if you do not see it on our selection.

However, our footstools are all made to receive an M8 threaded bolt. If you wish, you can supply your own as long as they have this same thread.

See our current leg selection here.

Trim Options

If you wish for us to substitute your footstools piping around the border or the trim we can certainly do that.

Cords, flanged trims and braids are all possible including fringing.

You can also specify a contrasting fabric for your piping which adds a lovely touch.

Here is an example of a Footstool with a contrast border from our workshop:

Deep buttoned footstool with contrast border and piped trim in customers own material.

Can I use my own fabric?

Yes! We accept Customers Own Material for upholstering onto your new footstool. We have fully comprehensive guidelines here which you may find useful.

We can also accept your tapestry and embroidery work for making into a footstool. It will be in very safe hands.

Here are some of our workshop snaps of Customers Own Material on items we have made recently.

What about a different shape footstool?

We are very happy to quote for any shape you can think of – please just ask. Inspiration or reference images or sketches will help us if you have any.

Changing the style of the top of your footstool

We offer plain top, shallow buttoned top and deep buttoned footstools as standard, with or without a border. We can make almost anything and so it is worth a call to us to see how we can help.

One off designs

Fully bespoke footstool with shallow buttoned surround and upholstered tray insert from customers own drawings in customers own material.

We are very happy to make you a unique footstool. We can include spaces for trays or glass inserts if you wish. The best thing to do is drop us a line and let us take a look.
