Bespoke oak foot stools, side tables and benches

Handmade to order in Leek, Staffordshire

Ette is a mid-century inspired collection of handmade bespoke furniture, including footstools, side tables and benches. The small-batch range is designed and made in the Homeward studio in Leek, using locally felled and seasoned Staffordshire oak.

The collection was designed by Homeward owner Nicky Hancock and local cabinet maker (and husband) Jacob Littlejones.

Homeward stocks a selection of ready-made Ette stools and benches that are available to buy in the shop and order online with or without seat pads.

Ette oak foot stools

The oak topped Ette Footstool has four turned and tapered legs and is made with a solid oak oval or rectangular top with a simple chamfered edge.

We designed the Ette stool with smaller spaces in mind. We wanted it to be a useful and multifunctional item that could be used as a footstool, extra seating or a side table. It also sits under our Ette bench for nifty space saving.

Ette bench

The made-to-order bench is available in three different lengths or to customers’ bespoke dimensions. The smallest and most popular two seater bench was designed for the hallway, at the foot of the bed or as dining room seating and could be used as a long slim coffee table or footstool for two.

Detachable seat pads – made to order

We can make you a detachable seat pad to order for your Ette Bench in the size and fabric of your choice from our collection of fabric books and swatches we have in the shop.These seat pads are quoted for individually as it will depend on the fabric you choose and the size of bench its being made for. 

Detachable Seat Pad – Ready-made / Surplus Fabric

You will also find an ever changing selection of random and one off ready made seat pads in the shop that are made using whatever surplus fabric we have left over from our upholstery projects. These seat pads are excellent value for money since we’re using up waste fabric so it’s worth keeping your eyes peeled on the shop to see what we have in stock.

We were so happy when we found the brilliant local timber supplier on our doorstep. The Ette collection is made with Shelmore Timber’s beautiful character oak from the Norbury Park Estate on the Staffordshire Shropshire border. The timber is felled and seasoned within its own estate and we are lucky enough to handpick it from a sustainably managed supply for our Ette range.
