Coming in all colours, shapes and coverings, when it comes to footstools, we are all spoilt for choice when searching for the one that best suits the style of our home. More and more people are asking for footstools for one simple reason – they allow you to have an extra comfortable seat for those last minute guests, without taking up too much space. What’s more, they are easily transportable from one room to another without too much effort. Indeed, footstools are truly functional complements that can be placed into any environment, even the smallest, and they can be used for various purposes – some of which you’ve probably never thought of! For this reason, we’ve put together a whole range of different and alternative ways that you can make use of your footstool as not only just a seat.

How do you choose a footstool? There’s a wide range on offer and in order to find the right footstool for you, you should always consider its size, shape and colour in relation to the room you want to put it in and the use you want to make of it. For example, large, rounded footstools are perfect for replacing a sofa in small rooms, while square or rectangular ones are more practical and multifunctional. However, unconventionally shaped footstools can add that touch of class you’ve been looking for to make your furniture unique. Let’s go into more detail on how you can use your footstool around your home, from the bedroom to the living room, to the kitchen and the bathroom.
– A footstool can become an excellent side table, bedside table or even a bench. If you don’t have a lot of space or haven’t found a coffee table to suit your needs, you can use a footstool in the living room as a side table, or even in the bedroom as a bedside table. One example you might consider is ‘TiBacio’, a wooden footstool/table designed by Obliqua Studio for Calia Italia. In fact, ‘TiBacio’ was one of the stars of the last edition of the ‘Salone del Mobile.Milano’ and was completely handmade as a limited edition to celebrate the company’s great craftsmanship.
Rectangular-shaped footstools also make for excellent benches in the living room or as bedside tables in the bedroom to furnish the room in an elegant or ‘pop’ (depending on the model) kind of way. Indeed you may wish to use them to store clothes or to accommodate your pet who doesn’t want to sleep in its bed at night! Regardless of what you decide, you will always have something that can be used for those unexpected, last minute guests looking for a place to sit. You can’t get more multi-tasking than that!
For an example of a footstool that is perfect for this type of situation, we recommend taking a look at the ‘Mater Familias’ collection by Calia Italia. The footstool version comes in round and rectangular shapes and there is also a bench version that is more elongated and has more generous dimensions.
One model that guarantees a real comfort experience is the soft and light ‘Trapezio’ by Calia Italia. With a unique trapezoidal shape, it is available in three different sizes, in various colours and types of upholstery, so that you can find the right combination between functionality and style for your furniture!
A colourful footstool with an innovative design and refined concept like ‘U’Strozz’ by Calia Italia (which is also eco-sustainable as it is made from production waste) can really enhance your home environment.
If you want to amaze everyone and express your sweetest and most glamorous personality through your furniture… the Macarons footstool by Calia Italia (so called for its soft French sweet type shape) has been designed just for you!
