Why we love this product

A stunning velvet footstool depicting majestic creatures

Inspired by classical landscapes and decaying mansions, the rich imagery in thisÿpiece embraces elegantly escaping plants whilst urban fauna runs wild. Squirrels riot in abundant foliage; their tails luxuriant with faux fur textures and thick embroidery. Ripe red, shimmering pomegranates are nibbled by passing creatures whilst decadently embroidered peacocks peer and preen amongst the undergrowth. A wild luxury has grown over the Chinoiserie opulence as the exquisite embroideries bring alive shifting cultural allegiances creating contemporary embellished landscapes.

The use of such luxurious materials deepens the stunning colours on this luxury, designer footstool especially theÿexquisiteÿombr‚ from dark blue into vibrant green. This velvet footstool should sit pride of place in any sitting room, living room or snug where it can be fully appreciated.
