Bar stools are not just for the bar. In our kitchen, we have an island with three bar stools. Our kitchen cabinets are light colored wood and our wooden stools are of the same color. If I were to change and update these, there are so many counter stools to choose from. They come in all types of materials and designs. Comfort would be a priority, since we sit on them every night. Here are some beautiful photos for my inspiration folder…. ahhh! I love the simplicity of these dark wood and metal ones, as well as the
cool leather upholstery seats.
Height and weight are just as important as color and style in my opinion.
These modern orange seats look comfortable and lightweight.
I love this eclectic metal bar stool. Very retro!
How about a conversation piece? These contemporary acrylic seats are to die for! Another factor to consider is durability. Is the stool easy to clean?
Two other bar stool characteristics are high backs and foot rests. You can see that I am leaning towards comfort… and a swivel is an added bonus! I love this handsome chair from More Bar Stools
. Elegant and sophisticated indeed…
