They come with a multitude of different bases such as a trestle, full-frame,sculptural or plinth, and can be made from materials such as wood, glass, concrete, natural stone, metals such as brass or bronze, they can also be clad with mirror, leather or shagreen (stingray leather).
A gorgeous sculptural stool can be placed underneath a console to create balance and interest. It’s also a great place to put on and take off your shoes and means you have an extra seat should you ever require it for guests when entertaining. Another great option is a pair of matching upholstered ottomans to create symmetry and add some colour and softness.
If your home is modern avoid heavily ornate pieces and opt for something with clean lines. If your home is more classic, a combination of brass or bronze base with glass top could work well. Selecting something in a light neutral colour will work best in a smaller, darker spaces.
A white or grey oak veneer finish has a wonderfully tactile and textured quality as you can see the stylish wood grain running throughout. Oak veneer finishes are much less reflective than gloss, making it a great alternative to having a bright, glossy finish in your home.
