After a long day, sinking into your sofa is a great feeling, but it’s even better kicking your feet up onto a footstool too, but not just any footstool will do. A plush and marvellous looking ottoman footstool is unrivalled as it can also be used as a bench, coffee table and even storage in some cases. Check out our top 10 best ottoman footstools for that Friday feeling every evening.
Best Ottoman Footstools
10. Annalise by Furniture Village
Made in Britain, the Annalise by Furniture Village has a filled foam top to give an ultra comfortable base for your feet. This also makes it perfect for sitting on for a long period of time.
Given the deep cushion on the lid, the storage inside is surprisingly spacious which is further helped with the large size of the ottoman at 66 x 99cm.
Measuring at 44cm tall, it’s at a good height but if it’s too high, the feet can be removed to lower the height. The ottoman is available in a plain/striped woven fabric or a soft damask material that’s similar to velvet which gives it a luxurious look and comes in four neutral colours.
9. Made Branagh Large Ottoman Footstool
Large and low, this Made Branagh Large Ottoman Footstool is perfect set in front of the sofa for several people to use at once. Measuring 100 x 100cm in a square shape size and a 32cm height, it’s large enough to be used as a coffee table as well.
With its sophisticated button texture detail and dark wooden legs, it gives the ottoman an edge that makes it a bold statement piece. The ottoman screams quality and luxury which is reflected in its price and with its brooding dark grey colour, it’s a wonderful luxurious piece of furniture to have in your living room.
8. M&S Salisbury
Featuring detailed feet, the M & S Salisbury storage footstool is easy to manoeuvre thanks to the little castor wheels fitted into its feet. Instead of the basic bulky black castor wheels, this footstool has small gold coloured wheels at the end of the walnut coloured wooden legs.
The ottoman itself comes in a variety of colours and patterns in leather or fabric which gives an overall style of elegance.
With its large rectangular size of 93 x 58cm, two people could use the footstool together. It does more than providing a place for feet to rest due to its handy storage space. This is revealed under its padded top. Overall, this ottoman is sturdy and made to a high quality that won’t fail to disappoint.
7. Sofa Heaven Rosa Storage Ottoman
Made from a soft brushed velvet fabric, the Sofa Heaven Rosa Storage Ottoman Footstool features a storage compartment beneath its button detailed surface. This is easy to lift up with a fabric tab that sticks out discreetly from beneath the lid. Handmade in Britain, it’s available in a dark grey or cream colour with dark brown wooden peg legs.
6. Ikea Stocksund
With its wide size of 144cm, the Ikea Stocksund makes a practical bench for the hallway or as extra seating in the lounge. It’s thickly padded to provide comfort for hours of sitting but beneath this thick cushion is a generous storage compartment.
Thankfully, there’s no need to hold the lid up whilst using the compartment as the lid stays up by itself with its air pump mechanism.
It’s available in 5 colours and patterns with leg colour choices of black or light brown. Keeping this ottoman bench clean is easy as the cover can be unzipped and machine washed which makes it one of the best ottoman footstools that’s easy to clean.
5. Wellington Glamour by Furniture Village
The Wellington Glamour by Furniture Village can add opulence to your living room with its beautiful crushed velvet fabric that comes in a light grey or amethyst grey colour. This feels wonderfully soft and luxurious under your feet and is well padded with foam to make an excellent seat too.
This ottoman doubles up as a storage solution as well when the lid is lifted which has an ample amount of space. There’s the option to remove the wooden feet on castors to make the ottoman lower if required. This can be paired with the rest of the Wellington Glamour collection to give your lounge that posh look.
4. Made Bouji Ottoman Footstool
Inspired by the Baroquen style, the Made Bouji Ottoman Footstool has been updated to fit in with a more modern style home. Constructed with plush velvet materials and super padded foam top complete with deep button detailing, the ottoman is high in quality and design. With its long width, it makes a great footstool for two to share or to place at the end of the bed as a seating area.
3. Bellagio Deep Storage Ottoman Footstool
Featuring lots of storage space within, the Bellagio Deep Storage Ottoman Footstool gives you the option to customise your ottoman to your specific style.
There are 7 fabrics to choose from including leather and soft touch chenille velvet. Not only that, each fabric has a wide range of colours and patterns to choose from. If you’re after something more specific, the company offers you the chance to provide your own fabric sample.
There are also three sizes to choose from and a selection of legs to complete the overall design whether it’s on castor wheels, metal, wooden or pretty designed pegs.
This personalised ottoman footstool comes at a steep price but worth the money for your own unique design and the completed masterpiece is one of excellent quality. This is the best ottoman footstool for customisation and handcrafting.
2. M&S Button Storage Ottoman Footstool

There’s a good amount of storage within the ottoman which could store remote controls, spare plugs or magazines. Available in a good selection of colours and patterns in leather or fabric, you could choose one to complement your current furniture.
1. Made Vittorio Ottoman Footstool
Featuring a contemporary design, the Made Vittorio Ottoman Footstool is deeply padded with foam cushioning to provide a satisfactory footrest or seat.
It’s covered in high quality polyester fabric that’s durable and tear-resistant which is of a modern cool grey shade. Its neutral colour makes it easy to match with most furniture styles and colours.
Crafted from wood and steel, it’s unlike any of the other best ottoman footstools on our list. Instead of the traditional wooden peg legs, this one has chrome angled legs which really sets off the overall modern look of the footstool.
