The industrial style goes very well with the whole kitchen concept because it’s based on materials such as stainless steel, iron, rough wood, etc. and these materials are often incorporated in the kitchen décor no matter what, especially because of all the appliances. So industrial-style bar stools often feature simple designs with metallic structures and wooden seats, sometimes being all-metal.
Fabric, as opposed to leather, tends to be a little bit more versatile. It comes in many different textures, not to mention the array of colors and patterns. Also, fabric is easier to work with. Fabric-upholstered furniture, in this case bar stools, make a space feel more casual and thus more comfortable and inviting. But their rusticity can be toned down by incorporating various accessories into their design or by pairing them with certain types of furniture or certain colors and materials.
The Jailhouse Back Wood Seat Swivel Stool featured here would be a good option in that case. Their design makes them coordinate well with farmhouse kitchens.

Of course, the backrest isn’t the only thing that makes a bar stool comfortable. Its entire design and structure are important. The type you choose has to do with the size of the room, its function and also how often you plan on using the stools. You should focus on the height, material and style of the stool. For example, decide whether you want a swivel system or not and, if you plan on getting a backless design, the seat should be padded and big enough to be comfortable.
Another type is the counter-height stool which is the one we’re more interested in. These stools are smaller than the ones used in bars and restaurants and they’re the best for kitchen islands. They measure between 24” and 27” in height. Then there’s also the bar-height stool which is the same one you see in bars. These can be used for standard built-in bars and have a height of 28” to 33”. The fourth type is the extra tall stool which is somewhere between 33” and 36” tall. In its case the name pretty much speaks for itself.

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.

Leather furniture is usually something you incorporate in a traditional interior décor, unless the design is unusual and innovative, in which case it can easily fit in a more modern space. In the case of leather bar stools, the designs are not as versatile as for other material combinations. They tend to look more robust and they usually fit well in spaces that have an overall traditional and elegant design.
