The Napoleon is a backless bar stool with an antique white finish and a rather traditional design. It’s the type of bar stool that can integrate well in traditional and Scandinavian interiors. This farmhouse kitchen is another lovely option.
Basically, the first thing you need to think about is in what space the bar stools will be going. This will provide a perfect starting point in your search. Will they be at the kitchen island and be used every day, many times a day? Or will they be tucked away in the basement kitchenette for the occasional holiday party?
If not, usually you risk getting bar stools that are too high for your kitchen counter. For example, although these classic Tolix stools complement this island really well, they seem a bit too high for it. This means you’d be sacrificing comfort.
The same shape of base with an upcycled metal seat makes for a rustic bar stool that would still be an appropriate addition to a modern space. The colored seats are perfect for mixing and matching. Round bar stools can take on a retro feel when they are outfitted with an old-fashioned seat, foot rail and pedestal base. These were found at Finch, in Hudson, New York. The vintage look would fit well at a traditional style bar or at a rustic or modern kitchen counter.
