If that number sounds a little daunting, don’t think that you need to scroll through every single one.

What to look for in a vintage step stool?

As well as being attractive, every footstool and step stool in the Vinterior collection is practical and durable, and more than capable of taking the weight off your feet after a long, hard day. Some have not been touched since the day they were made, and yet are still in excellent condition, a true testament to the craftsmanship that went into them. Others, however, have been painstakingly refurbished or upcycled by a dedicated individual, with any loose joints retightened, any rusty screws replaced, and any damaged fabric done away with and replaced with designs that either honour the footstool's origins, or give it a completely new look more in keeping with 21st century tastes. Whether they've been upcycled or not, every one of our footstools is strong and unique.

Choosing vintage footstools

Footstools are not often considered to be of great importance in modern furniture design, which is a great shame, because – useful and unobtrusive as they are – they're easy to incorporate into any room of the house, and come in as varied a range of styles as any other item of furniture. Buying a vintage footstool will also help to make your home a little greener, saving the planet from the cost of the needless manufacture of a new, mass-produced footstool.

Incorporating a vintage leather footstool into your home

In the Vinterior collection, you will find artisan footstools to suit any taste and requirements. An ornately upholstered vintage leather footstool, for example, with handsomely carved wooden feet, would look right at home in the large, cosy living room or study of an older house. On the other hand, a sleek vintage pouffe from the 1950s might be better suited to a lighter, more contemporary living room in need of a little character. Whatever their aesthetic, vintage footstools serve as a handy extra service or seat in a pinch, as well as a place to rest your aching ankles.
