Why We Love Footstools
Footstools are practical pieces that enhance the comfort of any seating area in your home. Paired with your favorite sofa or armchair, footstools allow you to get comfortable after a long day. In addition to their function, modern footstools can also add style to any space. The right footstool can add color or intrigue to your room and accent your existing furniture. As a result, the purchase of a footstool brings more than function to your home. It also allows you to add a layer of depth to your home decor.
Where Footstools Work Best
Accent stools serve a variety of purposes around the house, which means they function well in many spaces. Most often, footstools are used in front of sofas and chairs to serve as a convenient spot to prop your feet. You can add them to your living room sofa, a glider in a baby's nursery or an oversized armchair in your office for instant comfort. You might even find a convenient spot outdoors for a footstool. You can add unique stools to your patio, porch or deck, where they don't just serve as a spot to prop your feet. They also function as unique outdoor decor.
A Modern Stool for Every Style
Contemporary footstools come in an array of sizes and styles, so you'll have no trouble finding one that coordinates well with your existing decor. Vitra's footstools come in several unique silhouettes, ranging from sleek modern footstools with subtle curves and clean lines to animal-shaped stools ideal for a kid-friendly space.
