And some were solid spheres.
Some had wooden legs and upholstered tops.
Some had needlepoint tops and Queen Anne legs.
So why am I so interested in footstools and hassocks today? Because I bought this one today at the Tattered Angel for $22.
I am going to change the upholstery, but will probably just put paste wax on the wood and leave the worn finish.
In the 1970's, my family became a Lazyboy family, and suddenly footstools became scarce.
I sell furniture four days a week, and we sell very few footstools. Mostly recliners or chairs with matching or coordinating ottomans that are much larger and higher than the old footstools/hassocks of yesteryear.
Are you a recliner family or chair and ottoman family?
