Hubby and I have been looking for a new footstool for quite a while, since the last one was destroyed by a combination of cats and children! When Mellow Duck gave us the chance to review one of their pods, a Cayuga square footstool, I couldn’t wait for it to arrive.
Mellow Duck produce a range of seven different pods so there is one to suit every room in your home and every personality with a selection of six fabric types, each of which is available in a variety of colours. Our Cayuga pod is in the Glastonbury cotton-mix faux leather fabric. It’s hard wearing, easy to clean and stain resistant so perfect for us with small children. Having put it to the test it really does wipe clean incredibly easily and as yet it has no obvious signs of wear so really stands up to life with children.
The Cayuga pod, although for us is mainly used as a footstool, can also be used as a side table or seat and the children love to sit on it as it’s the perfect height to climb up on to. It’s made from hardwood with foam padding and the faux leather fabric on top. It also has small feet on the bottom which help to move it around the room and keep it incredibly stable when in use.
We found that the Mellow Duck Cayuga pod was a really good size at 30cm x 40cm x 40cm and Hubby and I would often share it as a footstool, plenty of room for two! Mellow Duck aim to make it simple to update your home and add a splash of colour at any time, whatever your needs. Their products are diverse and have so many uses that a side table one day could easily be a seat the next day with no effort at all. Our Cayuga footstool has fit seamlessly into out lounge and gets moved around the house as we need it – into the kitchen for the children to sit on, in front of the TV as a footstool or even a side table next to our bath. We’re loving finding new uses for the pod and each day it becomes something different.
The Mellow Duck Cayuga Footstool has an RRP starting at £130
