Green velvet footstool I can never say no to velvet furniture. I love the richness of texture on this footstool, especially in this deep colour. I have a slight obsession with green things at the moment, and I love the contrast with the metal studs, which emphasises the crossover of the legs.

Also from Graham & Green, this striking green velvet footstool costs £215
