put your best foot forward

We're a little obsessed with glazed ceramic footstools and the way in which they turn a rather dull homeware item into functional art. These stylish occasional furniture pieces are multifunctional and, whether used as a stand-alone eye-catcher or in a cluster, make a statement in any room.

We've got our eyes on a variety of footstools, from those with Oriental flair to those with a shiny sheen, in various shapes and sizes. Depending on your interiors, they can be used as a footstool, a beautiful side table, or a pop of art. We rounded up a few of our favourites below:
