Other times, black is chosen because it allows a certain feature to blend in. The dark blue kitchen island featured here supports this idea. The black bar stools fit extremely well in the décor. They blend in but also stand out a little bit because of the color differences.
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.
The Arteriors wooden bar stools have thin cast iron legs and a wooden seat with hand-carved detailing. The swivel seat allows the user to adjust the height depending on the height of the counter.
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.
