Footstool to Match This Chair?

Footstool to Match This Chair?

Q - I just moved to Los Angeles and I brought along this chair that I inherited from my mother. Originally it was covered in an orange fuzzy fabric, but she had it reupholstered a few years ago. Anyway, I would like to set up a reading area with it, but I need a footstool.

What will go with this? I don't have thousands of dollars to spend, but I do want something that will look style-appropriate. Any suggestions?

Editor - How about checking eBay and Craigslist for vintage era designs that you can take to have reupholstered in a complimentary fabric? Matching the exact design may be tough, but there are similar midcentury designs out there for reasonable prices (and you could always sand and re-stain to better match each piece).

By the way, we love the floor clock on the left side of the photo!
