George the footstool workshop

The George FootstoolBy George… it’s a footstool!

Our range of DIY occasional furniture has an addition. Welcome George!!

New generation George is named in honour of two George’s in previous generations of our families!!!

With his eye on the future, but with skills firmly planted planted in upholstery traditions, George is simple, practical and stylish!

Sustainability at his heart! With a strong focus on natural materials, we have worked hard to create a furniture frame that eliminates as many synthetic/processed products as possible.

George’s features:

  • Recycled handmade timber frame
  • Jute webbing support for the foam
  • A range of different fabric upholstery techniques
  • A variety of different legs to choose from

Choose your favourite style when you arrive! A variety of legs available for purchase on the day.

We’ll be ready for you to bring your footstool ideas to life!
