We all love a custard cream don't we? Of course we do, but what about having one as a piece of furniture? You can with the Custard Cream Footstool.
Whilst the Yin and Yang symbol has its roots in Chinese philosophy, it gained wider recognition in the West in the Sixties and will always carry certain hippie connotations. However, the overall look of footstool will ultimately depend on which fabric coverings you opt for – one example they have on their website uses Sanderson’s Dandelion fabric, which gives it more fifties feel.
Prices for the Yin Yang Footstool start at £290. Visit the Footseys website to order.
New in at Heals is this Niven armchair and footstool, unmistakably inspired by the 1930s.
Love that sloping back and angled arms, not to mention those straight edges, all derived from a hardwood frame, with support from high-resilience foam and hollowfibre cushions. That upholstery is brown semi-aniline leather.
£995 gets you the armchair, with the footstool sold separately – that goes for £450.
