Sometimes black is chosen to emphasize certain contrasts, like these bar stools that stand out in this particular setting because they interact with the white walls and wooden counter and floor.
Speaking of which, the Tolix stool known as a Tabouret can definitely add some charm to pretty much any bar or counter. It was originally designed for exterior use but its versatility allowed it to make its way inside the house.
Looking for bar stools that are a little more straight forward? With no nonsense squares like these, they’ll fit in small corners and can be pushed away under the table when you’re done using them. Available on Amazon.
They can be chosen to coordinate with the countertop in which case you need to be really careful when selecting the color and material. It’s possible to have them both custom made as a set. If the counter stands between 35” and 36” high as it’s usually the case, the stools should have a seat height of 24” to 26”. These measurements differ depending on type and the height of the kitchen counter.
