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.
These stools, for example, have a backrest and a swivel base but they don’t have armrests. Their design offers them a rustic-industrial look which pairs well with the exposed brick. Traditional bar stool designs usually look something like this, although variations can also be found. It seems that these have leather-upholstered seats which offers an elegant look.
After going through two styles dominated by rough designs and rather bland colors we now redirect our attention towards the mid-century modern designs which incorporate a little bit more colors, bold shades as well as more delicate and subtle looks. They maintain a timeless design and have a classical allure but they also tend to be more graphical and modern. When talking about bar stools, this translates as sleek and simplistic creations often featuring dynamic colors in order to become a focal point in the overall décor.
The padded white seats on these bar stools are something we fell in love with. They’re the mark of a simple and very elegant and sophisticated design. In contemporary interiors, the bar stools often function as focal points. Their designs are asymmetrical, quirky and intriguing. This doesn’t also mean that looks are more important than function or comfort.
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.
