A closer look at Milo

Milo is our littlest stool, which also makes it especially versatile. Its drum-shaped, textile-meets-leather design can be used in almost any room, from the sitting room to a child’s bedroom, and in a number of different ways, from piano seat to beside-the-bed piece to occasional perch.

Frame & filling

We build our frames using timber and proper jointing. Each footstool is then designed with a specific filling ratio to best suit its character. Here, we’ve used a firm foam that helps the fabric stay taut and that lets Milo act as a side table, but that’s comfortable enough to sit on too.

Form & function

This stool has a handle – made from supple but strong, dark brown leather that’ll naturally crease and age with use – that makes it easy to move from place to place. And, as sturdy as it is, it’s not so heavy that it’s difficult to lift. It’s all part of Milo’s usefulness.

Design detail

Milo’s cover is removeable – using a concealed zip – so you can update the textile (its handle comes off too to let you change the cover). It also has a wooden base which means the upholstery won’t wear down. Otherwise, this is a simple design in terms of looks, save for a few, tailored, stitched seams.

Fabric notes

The textiles in our fabric library range from pure linen to rich velvet and wool, and each one has its own character. Tone and texture can vary slightly from thread to thread, and expect to see the occasional slub in our linens and pile movement in our velvets. We’ve written an article about the personality behind each of our fabrics so that you can figure out which one best suits your home.

Taking care of Milo

We’ve put together this guide on taking care of your upholstered pieces so that they stay looking as beautiful as the day you first brought them home.

When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.

With smaller designs we tend to use one of three couriers; the three that we think are the best. It means that we can get your order out to you sooner. You’ll receive an email from our delivery partner to confirm your delivery date within 24 hours of us dispatching the item (or items).

No-quibble returns

We believe that returns should be easy, that’s why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. We offer a free returns service on accessories and all the details on what you need to do will be on your delivery note. Just make sure you keep hold of the packaging.
