The Egyptians were the first to use footstools. Their chairs were very high and people sitting on the chair required support for their feet. Footstools also work as a table or additional seating space. In fact footstools serve as chairs, stools, tables, stepladders and storage space too. Footstools are strong enough to stand up on and yet light enough to be easily lifted.

Footstools are small and close to the ground level. They have a wide, flat top and have no sides or back support. Footstools are made from wood, iron, or other metals. Footstools fit well into any home style, be it traditional or modern. Footstools are typically priced between US$ and US$ 1,000. Read more on storage footstools and leather footstools.
