Cheerful and practical, Cath Kidston products nod towards the 1950s and this contemporary range of footstools will brighten up any room in the house.

Kidston began by creating a collection of printed ironing board covers but things have changed markedly since the early days.

Individuals are now able to purchase beautifully designed footstools to reflect the vibrant tones of Summer.

Cath Kidston opened her first shop in London in 1993 and after almost twenty years of growth her business has a turnover today of more than 50 million. In the early days she trawled through car boot sales, once buying a pair of antique leather arm chairs for 50 and selling them two days later for over 1000! It was through the experiences of antique fairs and junk shops that Kidston developed the merchandise and know how to progress her career through to the next level.

She felt from the very start that she was onto something with the notion of what she was doing. She recalled feeling, "I'd really overstepped the mark when I opened my second shop - thinking, that's probably going a stage too far." Kidston was awarded with an MBE in the 2011 New Years Honours List and was Kirsty Young's castaway in an edition of Desert Island Discs that was transmitted on the morning of Friday 29th April. This was incidentally the day that Prince William married Catherine Middleton at a wedding ceremony in Westminster Abbey watched by an estimated audience of over two billion people!.
