As an extension of the collaboration with Danish deigner Rikke Frost, Carl Hansen & Søn presents the Sideways Footstool – a versatile and comfortable piece of furniture made of natural materials, ideal for both private home and public spaces.
Rikke Frost is known for combining classic design with a modern approach, and her designs always employ outstanding craftsmanship to achieve a high degree of functionality. This is clear in the new Sideways Footstool, whose generous upholstery and elegant joinery makes it just as comfortable to sit on as it is beautiful to look at. Its shape effortlessly complements the Sideways Sofa, but the footstool can be used as a standalone piece of furniture or in a group to create a welcoming lounge environment.
The Sideways Footstool is characterized by its soft shape and fine details that refer to the Sideways Sofa; the solid wooden frame and the distinctive legs, highlighting the elegance of the wooden features in the same way as the sofa does. The organic silhouette of the footstool is a classic trademark of Rikke Frost. The textile is cut from a single piece of material and must be stretched over the foam so that the weave of the fabric remains straight without wrinkling – a task which only the most experienced upholsterers can master. Available in textile upholstery with FSCTM-certified oak in all finishes and walnut in oil or lacquer.
