These were 2 custom made footstools for birthday presents. These have a hinged, padded lid upholstered in authentic Brasilian coffee sacking. The wineboxes serve as a handy storage space too.
Love wine? Love putting your feet up? Then you'll love these. I take genuine French wooden wine boxes and fit a hinged lid that is then upholstered in whatever material takes your fancy. This one is covered in a hard wearing but beautiful fabric from Abraham Moon. They have a really handy storage space - excellent for tidying away your TV remote, games controls and even knitting! The price depends on the fabric you choose but this one is for sale at £75 (a bargain compared to what you'd pay on the high street).
My latest commission - a large footstool made from scratch to a customer's specification. The work began by building the hardwood frame, which was topped with foam, polyester and then covered in Harvest Hare fabric by Mark Hearld for St Jude's. I can make footstools to order in any size and can offer a range of legs in different finishes. Contact me if you would like something similar...
As well as selling original work, I'm happy to take commissions. Here's a selection of my recent projects...
