What’s just as simple, timeless and versatile as black but, at the same time, completely different? It;s its rival color, of course. White bar stools are a bit more pretentious but they can be just as stylish, if not even more. The Stack stool is an excellent example to start the list with.
Fabric is definitely one of the easiest ways to bring in color and pattern into a space with bar stools. (Spaces that, typically, may be short on both of those design aspects.) Fabric bar stools tend to be comfortable and pretty, although probably the hardest to clean.
So the height is an important criteria when choosing a bar stool, especially if you opt for a custom countertop height. But there’s more to counter-height stools than just that. Other measurements need to be taken into consideration as well. For example, make sure you space out the stools in a comfortable manner. The space between the center of a stool to the center of the one next to it should be between 26” and 30”.

After going through two styles dominated by rough designs and rather bland colors we now redirect our attention towards the mid-century modern designs which incorporate a little bit more colors, bold shades as well as more delicate and subtle looks. They maintain a timeless design and have a classical allure but they also tend to be more graphical and modern. When talking about bar stools, this translates as sleek and simplistic creations often featuring dynamic colors in order to become a focal point in the overall décor.
The general opinion is that bar stools with backs are more comfortable than the backless ones. It’s quite logical actually. Having something to rest against is definitely comfortable and even ergonomic, especially if you’re sitting on the stool for long periods of time. Backless stools can be comfortable too, usually if they’re only used periodically or for short periods of time.
