How to Style Your G Plan Footstool

Both stylish and functional, footstools have become a staple item in living rooms across the UK. The perfect companion to your sofa or armchair, these versatile pieces of furniture offer both comfort and practical solutions, whether you’re looking for extra storage or somewhere to display your favourite books.

We’ve pulled together a guide to help you navigate the G Plan range of footstools, offering tips on how to make the most of the smallest member of our furniture family.

Decorative Details

Simple, carefully selected ornaments can help to create an elegant, yet cosy atmosphere. Our Hatton footstool is an excellent alternative to a coffee table, with enough space for you to style is how you want. Choose hard covered coffee table books or a tray and add accessories, such as candles or small vases, to add style and colour.

A large, elongated footstool is the perfect final touch for any social space, allowing everyone to enjoy a cup of tea, whilst they put their feet up.

Fresh Foliage

Greenery and fresh flowers can help breathe life into a space. Beautiful bouquets and potted house plants also allow you to easily tailor the mood and style of your living space, which can be directed by the changing seasons or trending themes. Simple eucalyptus stems can create a sense of serenity, whilst a vibrant bunch of tulips inject cheery spring tones.

Textured Textiles

During shorter, colder days, we want nothing more than to reach for a blanket or two, and cosy up. Try introducing this into your styling, by draping a throw over an upholstered footstool, as demonstrated on our Avon footstool.

This is a great way to layer textures, but also keeps those all-important blankets to hand during those cooler evenings. Complete this tranquil scene with candles and even a lavish hot chocolate, for the ultimate hygge setting.

Subtle Storage

For smaller spaces or homes with children, practical yet stylish storage solutions can help maximise the layout of a room. We offer a range of storage footstools at G Plan, to complement your choice of sofa or chair.

The Spencer footstool has a reversable lid, which you can remove to create a convenient tray. This offers both form and function, whilst being the perfect place to pop a pot of tea and your favourite biscuits, for the perfect afternoon snack. Whilst our footstools are available in fabric, we also have a range of beautiful leather footstools, available to suit your needs and home style. Order a selection of fabric swatches today and discover which would best compliment your living space.
