For a more unusual twist, trumpet-shaped wooden bar stools (and matching bistro-height table) are an option. The shape is enhanced by the footrail that is only on one side which helps keep the profile slim. They’re great for a casual kitchen or bar area.
Another type is the counter height stool. These have the ideal height for a 36-39” high counter top. They are around 24-27” high and they’re also great to have on their own for extra seating. These are commonly used for kitchen or bar counters.
You might be best served by simply gravitating toward the type of bar stool that you love.just as you gravitate toward the variety of treasures you’ve already incorporated into your space. The bar stools will feel right at home. A little retro meets industrial meets vintage with some bar stools. This can create the perfect transition between two seemingly disparate spaces, if that’s what you need.
Because bar stools are a taller seating piece, they tend to be noticeable. A glossy modern stool or three can go a long way toward making an entire area feel more contemporary, if that is your aim.
