Treat your feet to an Amish footstool

by Tom Grimes

Putting your feet up at the end of a long day is one of the great joys in life. There are few moments better than when you settle into your favorite chair and stretch out onto the ottoman. Your feet take you everywhere in the course of your day - show your gratitude with a fine Amish-made footstool.

These gorgeous pieces come in a variety of styles, so finding one that suits your living room's style is quite simple. If you are looking for a standout item, consider the Cottage collection's primitive ottoman. The piece is hand painted to give it an elegant and antiquated look, much like the great footstools of ancient Greece.

There are more traditional styles available as well. The solid wood gliding ottoman is simple in its execution, with a deep wooden finish and a delicately-patterned floral cushion. Similarly, the Mission collection's footstool is regal with a solid-color cushion and an earnest design that amply speaks for its quality of craftsmanship.
