In terms of chic, practical, effortlessly portable comfort, no home is complete without an ottoman footstool.
Featuring on-trend craftsmanship that somehow still feels timelessly enduring, these designs are the perfect ‘finishing touch’ for wherever you may need extra seating – or an impromptu ‘foot prop.’
How to Style with an Ottoman Footstool
Think of these designs as an extension of your chair. You can match a chair to its stool via material (i.e., leather chair + leather ottoman), or opt for contrast (i.e., leather + fabric). Either way, keep in mind that an ottoman footstool is designed to complement a seat – whether as additional seating or as a leg/footrest. (If you ever get nervous about whether or not you have the seating capacity to host unexpected houseguests, keep a couple ottoman footstools on hand. Since they’re so compact, you can even store them in a back closet until you’re ready to whip them out for last-minute hosting!)
Keep them in hiding or incorporate them into your home decor fulltime. After all, an ottoman footstool has, over the years within the world of interior design, cemented itself as the ‘little black dress’ of furniture: everyone needs one – but just how often you choose to ‘show it off’ is up to you! Once you bring home any of the designs above, it’s easy to see why so many people include them on their lists of ‘must-have’ decorating staples.
While petite, what these designs lack in size they make up for in style!
