Stains, however, are never a big problem for people who own cowhide footstools. These footstools arent at all susceptible to pesky and lasting stains. If you ever get a beverage on your footstool, you dont have to throw a tantrum. Simply get water and a moist cloth. This combination should do away with the problem in no time, luckily enough. Nature is truly captivating and majestic. Nature is responsible for some of the most enchanting things on the planet as well.
To be functional, an ottomans height should precisely match the height of the sofa or chair that you will occupy while using it. Ottomans should be chosen in consideration of those who will most use them. For some, a light ottoman will provide all the support needed. For others, a larger, wider piece is a better choice. A broad selection of ottomans ensures that there is a piece to suit any taste and any decor.
The earliest appearance of a footstool seems to have been in ancient Egypt and was used more as a step than a stool, to help the Pharaohs climb onto their huge thrones. But they were not just the furnishings of the rich and powerful, nomadic traders also used small, lightweight boxes to carry around their wares which they also used as seating and the storage footstool or ottoman was born. Footstools can be simply decor but as functional units they really come into their own.
The Victorians popularised the storage footstool/ottoman in the 19th Century using it mainly for storing bed linen, laundry and the like, but they became a very popular, "must have" piece of furniture. In line with the fashion of the time they started to make them more decorative and many took on a different shape like a circle or octagon. Some even had places to hold plants or even a statue! Footstools are just as important in our homes today as they have ever been and no home should be without one.
