Tuffets

We make bespoke tuffets…

What is a tuffet….a fancy footstool….a child’s stool … it can be whatever you want it to be

The first tuffet I made was 18in diameter and is the size I make the most. It consists of a mdf/wood base, 6” depth foam, wadding and fire resistant liner before adding the fabric and feet.

I have adapted the pattern to make 15in and 12in diameter with foam depth also adjusted otherwise similar in all other respects.

The feet can be left natural for you to finish but I usually paint or varnish so that the tuffet is handed over complete. Clear varnish works well especially over matt paint when it’s the only way to get a specific shade. Chalk paints look good and metallic acrylic paint can also be very effective. Its all down to personal choice.

There are examples of all the above in the gallery.

The 64 piece tuffet (image tuffet 1) is using a quilting based technique and is very time consuming and hence much more expensive.

Mostly I use 24 pieces on an 18in and adjust for smaller ones. I have also adjusted to use just 4 pieces as shown in the village tuffet (18in) and the minions (15in) one.

Fabrics

Depending on what you’re looking for I’m sure I’d have something which would appeal. Florals, geometrics, themes, childrens etc. in several colourways. They are mostly in 100% quilting cotton but some are in a thicker canvas weight. I have a good selection of plain colours which are used to complement printed fabrics but I’m happy to order an exact match from the kona colour chart if required.
