Put your feet up

Decorating for your selfish spiritual retreat or not, every Cocoonista needs the Perfect Footstool, ottoman or tuffet.  Or at least something to put her feet up.   Curling up, lying down. stretching out or even having a place to put your books, magazines, cup of tea,  or your little puppy.

Ottoman's have so many uses.

You need a footstool
So I decide to troll the world wide web in search of a footstool, ottoman, hassock, footrest, tussock, bench, pouf.

the British English Dictionary says
“a low support on which a person who is sitting can place their feet.”

The ottoman entered our living rooms through the French. They invaded Egypt. Discovered the stools that tortured citizens used to rest their weary feat. The ottomans did it.  Don’t know what else France took back but the footstool was the latest craze back in the late 18th century.   Designs have expanded since then, and they still are the perfect spot to put your feet up.

A footstool can make a statement about the kind of woman you are.  Or where you visualize those hot shoes or pink toenails.
