Fabric and leather footstools and pouffes
A footstool can enhance the comfort of your armchair, allowing you to put your feet up and rest after a long day at work. If you don’t like the look of reclining armchairs, adding a footstool to your sitting room will still make your seating arrangements cosy and ergonomic.
You can choose a footstool that complements the design of your sofa and armchairs, and contributes to the overall décor of the room. At Carters Furniture, we have a huge selection of quality, affordable footstools in the UK, and we can help you easily find one that adds to the ambience of your room.

Why Choose a Footstool or Pouffe?
Rather than using the edge of your coffee table, or putting your dirty shoes on the sofa, a footstool or pouffe designates the appropriate place to put your feet. This extends the life of your other furniture, while enhancing your comfort. Putting your feet up on a footstool or pouffe actually has health benefits, as well.
Elevating your feet after a long day can improve circulation, reduce inflammation and swelling, and reduce fluid build-up in your tissues and joints. This means you’re less likely to have foot or leg pain, cramps, or stiffness. Plus, a footstool or pouffe makes it much easier to sit back, relax, and enjoy your favourite show or movie after a hard day’s work.
Difference Between a Footstool & Pouffe
A footstool is a type of footrest that is designed to look luxe, comfortable, and elegant. Footstools are available in a huge variety of materials, styles, colours, patterns, and designs, and create a designated place to put your feet up and rest while lounging. Footstools typically have legs, but some do not. Some footstools have a top that is hinged or can be fully removed, providing a hollow area for storage of blankets, magazines, or other accouterments. A pouffe is typically a large, plush cushion that is also used as a footrest or even an additional seating option. A pouffe is often less expensive than a footstool, but it depends on the size, style, and material of each.
Should You Choose a Leather or Fabric Footstool?
A leather footstool or pouffe is elegant and timeless, and dirt and dust can be easily wiped away. However, if you have pets, a leather footstool requires extra care to protect it from claws and teeth. A fabric footstool is versatile and easy to care for, and some have removable covers that can be washed and refreshed.
Benefits of a Footstool
Buying a footstool not only enhances your comfort, but offers other benefits as well:
- Better support for the body and spine
- Reduces inflammation, fluid buildup, and swelling
- Reduces risk of spinal conditions
- Improves circulation
- Reduces fatigue
