Styling Your Footstool

Both stylish and functional, the footstool has become a staple item in living rooms across the UK. The perfect companion to your sofa or armchair, these versatile pieces 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 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. Choose hard covered books or a tray and add accessories such as candles or small vases, to add style and colour. Exclusive to John Lewis and Partners, The Diamond Footstool adds fun and function to complement your styling. Why not purchase a group of three in different coloured fabrics, to create a statement in your living space and create your own footstool coffee table.

Freshen up with foliage

Greenery and fresh flowers can help breathe life into a space, allowing you to tailor the mood and style the seasons depending on your selection of foliage. Simple eucalyptus stems can create calm, whilst a vibrant bunch of tulips inject cheery spring tones. Add to one of our larger ottoman style footstools such as Rita, to complement beautiful upholstery details.

Textured Textiles

The days are getting slightly longer but the nights are still cold, meaning we’re often reaching for a throw or blanket to cosy up. Try introducing this into your styling by draping over an upholstered footstool as seen in our Avon image to add texture, keeping it to hand on those cooler evenings. Pair with candles for the ultimate hygge setting.
