There are many ways to refresh a room. We've recommended switching around your accent pillows and adding a bowl of lemons to a kitchen table for an easy décor change. Another simple method is to bring a new foot rest into the space. Whether it's a pouf, a large ottoman, or a structured stool, the furniture can serve as an extra seat or hidden storage. Here, 12 options from patterned to plain that will give your room a leg up, literally.
