When both the bar stools and the bar are black, the result can turn out quite unimpressive. However, that’s not the case here because the stools definitely stand out. That’s due to their ornate design and the drama they add to the décor.
Once you got all measurements right, you need to decide how many stools you need. Figuring out the number is easy. You need to provide adequate spacing for people to eat, drink or socialize. A distance of around 26”-30” between the centers of the bar stools should be ideal.
Bar stools are pretty controversial, not exactly something you’d expect for something so common and widely used. They’ve become a must-have for a lot of modern and contemporary kitchens and then of course we have the bars and man caves that make the most of them. There’s a surprisingly big number of variations related to the design and structure of the bar stool. A common debate is the choice between backless bar stools and those with backrests. Each type has its own pros and cons.
If kids are in the picture, you’ll definitely want to weigh more heavily those characteristics such as sturdiness (to prevent their accidentally tipping over), durability, and ease of cleaning. Of course, if the bar stools will be used exclusively (or, at least, primarily) by adults, you can afford to safely go with lower backs, more delicate stability, and swivel options.
The Eyes bar stool by Foersom & Hiort-Lorenzen is so cute you just have to have it. It’s a neo-classic, with a simple design and a subtle retro touch. The buttons in the backrest resemble two eyes and, despite the specific design accents, the stool is very versatile.
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.
