We’ve got no end of brilliant ideas bubbling away back at base. See some of our latest creations to inspire your perfect bespoke, made to measure footstool.

So, what can we bespoke for you?

Here is a look at some of the bespoke elements that we can customise on your footstool.  We can work from sketches, inspiration images and technical drawings to create your perfect design.

Bespoke Size Footstool

We can make any size of footstool or ottoman that you want, adding additional support and more legs if required when ordering an extra large footstool or a very long footstool – perfect for parties, hallways and grand entrances.

Bespoke Height Footstool

We can make your footstool any height by increasing or decreasing the leg height, altering the height of the pad or by using a combination of both.

Footstools with Contrast Trim

We can add a variety of Customer’s Own Trims to the bottom edge of your footstool.  We can apply a ruffled valance, pleated valance, flanged cord, bullion or tassel fringe of Jacquard woven or embroidered ribbon to the bottom edge of your footstool. For more information on the trims that may be suitable please click here.

Footstools With Custom Top Detail

We can change/move buttons, add pleats, sewn panels, subtle pulls, twin stitch line detail and much more on the top or sides of your footstool.

Bespoke Footstool With a Tray

Need a tray or board set into the top of your footstool, or a cut out for a glass insert?  Just send us the item you would like an inset to be made for in the top of your footstool and we will make a recessed area to hold it in place.

Bespoke Shape Footstool

Hexagon footstools, triangle footstools and oval or circular footstools and ottomans are all possible by request.  We can even help with the design process if you need some inspiration.

Customer’s Own Material Footstool

Our upholsterers and sewists are all experts in their field and we are extremely confident and experienced in accepting your own material for your new footstool.  In addition to using customers own material we can also work with your own legs and trims or braids.

We absolutely LOVE the footstool. The workmanship is just great (the piping must have been tricky with the fabric), the delivery team were happy and helpful and the process with yourself online was seamless helpful and just really easy. Couldn’t recommend you highly enough!!

My footstool was delivered yesterday by your very helpful driver (please thank him after such an early start from Wales) and we are thrilled with the quality and workmanship that you have provided with our new footstool. It looks lovely at the foot of the bed and has greatly improved the appearance of the bedroom. Thank you also for including the surplus fabric.
