Buying Guide

Your antique footstool should never be taller than your sofa’s seat. Footstools are designed to be low to the ground and should generally be a few inches shorter than your sofa. The standard height of footstools is 12 inches, which provides just the right amount of comfort for most people.

Antique footstools describe the category of any footstool that was made over 100 years ago. (Anything between 20 and 100 years old is referred to as ‘vintage.’) The antique footstools in vogue today have shiny, detailed legs with delicate scrolls and embroidered cushions on top. They can add comfort and a cozy feel to any space!
