The Eyes bar stool by Foersom & Hiort-Lorenzen is so cute you just have to have it. It’s a neo-classic, with a simple design and a subtle retro touch. The buttons in the backrest resemble two eyes and, despite the specific design accents, the stool is very versatile.
The curves of the Onda barstool give it a very sophisticated look and that’s because the overall design is very simple. The white version is particularly attractive but the stool comes in a variety of other colors.
For vintage-modern interiors, a different type of design is required and the Rutland counter stool definitely has it. It has a strong metal frame and a few gentle curves that soften its industrial appearance.
Bar stools are pretty controversial, not exactly something you’d expect for something so common and widely used. They’ve become a must-have for a lot of modern and contemporary kitchens and then of course we have the bars and man caves that make the most of them. There’s a surprisingly big number of variations related to the design and structure of the bar stool. A common debate is the choice between backless bar stools and those with backrests. Each type has its own pros and cons.
The last element to take into consideration before purchasing kitchen counter stools is the style. Some designs have seat back, others don’t, some have armrests as opposed to others which are simple plus other distinctions such as between swivel and non-swivel stools, upholstered and non-upholstered models, adjustable and stationery designs, etc.
A good strategy is to pair white with more white. So if you have a kitchen with white cabinetry and a white island, then perhaps a set of white bar stools would be the right choice in such a case.
