The Glenn bar stool from Ikea is chic and functional for a variety of reasons. It has a curved white seat and a chrome-plated frame. It’s stackable and this allows you to save some space when the stools are not in use.
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.
Modern farmhouse design has had a serious moment in the last year or so. Combining simplicity and rusticity is basically an art form, which makes this metal bar stool a piece of art and worthy of your modern farmhouse kitchen. Available on Crateandbarrel.
Combining a metal base and a wood seat, these smart and sleek stools have an all natural design and they’re also quite versatile. Include them in rustic, modern and even industrial kitchens and their simple design (lacking a backrest and armrests) will complement the décor beautifully.
