When you are considering buying a new footstool there are a number of things to take into consideration. Not the least of these is the material in which you want it covered. At Footstools & More we have a vast range of different fabrics, and also leather and faux leather.

Not only that, but if you check out all the options that we have available and you don’t see what you want, that is still no problem.


Because we also have a large and ever-growing selection of designer fabric suppliers from whom we can source materials. This suddenly sends your options from the hundreds that we have, to many, many thousands. And if you still don’t see the material that you want, then you can purchase your own material and send it to us, and we will use that. All you need to do is to let us know so that we can tell you how much material you need to buy. Safe to say, when you order a footstool from us you will get it in the material that you want.

Many of our customers choose an ottoman footstool with storage because it can have so many uses – in addition to the fact that you can put your feet up on it! A storage ottoman footstool can be long enough for two or even three people sitting on a sofa to put their feet up, and at the same time you can keep your living room tidy by putting things that you need to hand out of sight in the knowledge that they are right there when you want to use them.

When thinking about the covering for your footstool, we have to say that many of our customers opt for a leather footstool. We have a selection of different leathers, and also Idaho which is a faux leather.

Real Leather

However, a real leather footstool has several benefits. First of all, it oozes “class”. Not only does it look fabulous, but it also smells good, and you can’t say that about most fabrics.  It’s like when you buy a new car with leather seats: the scent is divine.

Another huge benefit, especially if you have kids, cats, dogs, and clumsy family members, is that it is extremely difficult to cause any damage to it. Cats and dogs can sleep on it. Kids can jump up and down on it. And clumsy family members can spill red wine on it. All it needs is a quick wipe over with a cloth, and you will never know that it happened.
