The sleek frame of the Zuo Modern Criss Cross counter chair combined with its comfortable and elegant seat form the perfect combination for modern home bars and kitchen island counters. It features integrated footrests and criss-crossed back straps, a detail that gave the stool its name.
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.
In addition to the height of the stool another detail to take into consideration is the spacing between them. There should be 26-30” from the center of one stool to the center of the one next to it. This ensures a comfortable seating experience for all the users.
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 design of this kitchen island evenly divides the space between the three Twist swivel stools. Also, the design of the stools allows them to have adjustable height and this pretty much solves both problems we’ve discussed so far. But when the island has an undulating design such as in this case, the irregular shape makes it difficult to evenly distribute the stools and to offer each one the same type of comfort.
The Marcello Counter Stools are upholstered and have comfortable backrests but, even though the designs suggests the presence of armrests, they’re not a feature of this design. Also, the height is not adjustable. As far as style goes, these stools coordinate well with traditional designs.
