Now, it's unlikely that you can squeeze an extra sofa into your lounge, but you might just have the space for a comfy stool. This Ripley drum stool from Dormy House is available in three sizes and multiple colours and you can even have it upholstered in your own fabric. It's perfect to pull out as an extra seat when entertaining; and when you're not, it becomes a cosy foot rest or additional perch for books or nibbles.
As you can see through the legs of this Perch Upholstery stool into the room beyond, it helps to create that illusion of space that you're forever chasing. Although, if you wanted to make it more stylised and a useful storage area too, you could pop a few small books in a pile under the legs or a neat stack of magazines.
This stool with an on-trend metallic base also contains a useful storage space beneath its seat. Useful for toys, chargers or arts and crafts materials.
