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.
Some designs and systems make it more difficult to determine the right distance between them. It’s the case here where this small kitchen island and its two attached stools had to fit into a limited space. Suspended seats such as these ones which come in pairs of two are easier to work with. Because they’re incorporated into the island, they can be put away when not in use to save space.
Similarly simple but with a different kind of charm is the Posa bar stool from Vincent Sheppard. It’s part of the Butterfly collection and has rattan upholstery which offers it a casual and comfortable look. It comes in 28 standard finishes but we prefer the black version. It just looks right this way.
We’re now going to step away from all the different styles and talk a little about suspended bar stools. They don’t exactly fit in a particular style because they can have all sorts of designs and yet their defining feature will be the fact that they’re suspended. It’s a characteristic that can be applied to modern and contemporary furniture but also to traditional and even rustic or industrial pieces. One of the defining characteristics of these pieces is the fact they they are space-saving and very functional.
The Napoleon is a backless bar stool with an antique white finish and a rather traditional design. It’s the type of bar stool that can integrate well in traditional and Scandinavian interiors. This farmhouse kitchen is another lovely option.
You’ll want to measure your counter height and make sure there is enough space between the bar stool seat and the bottom of the counter. A 10”-12” difference is recommended for optimum comfort and functionality.
When you need a nice contemporary stool for your family’s bar height counter, you need to think comfortable as well as durable. The metal legs on these stools will take anything you give them while the cushioned seats create an inviting scene.
You should also measure the space between the seat of the stool and the underside of the counter. A 9” to 12” space is a good choice. This means you and your guests would be able to sit comfortably without touching the counter with your knees. But measurements aren’t everything. You also need to think about the style of your counter-height bar stools, the materials they’re made of, their color and their number.
A good strategy is to pair white with more white. So if you have a kitchen with white cabinetry and a white island, then perhaps a set of white bar stools would be the right choice in such a case.

Combining a metal base and a wood seat, these smart and sleek stools have an all natural design and they’re also quite versatile. Include them in rustic, modern and even industrial kitchens and their simple design (lacking a backrest and armrests) will complement the décor beautifully.
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 last element to take into consideration before purchasing kitchen counter stools is the style. Some designs have seat back, others don’t, some have armrests as opposed to others which are simple plus other distinctions such as between swivel and non-swivel stools, upholstered and non-upholstered models, adjustable and stationery designs, etc.
The Arteriors wooden bar stools have thin cast iron legs and a wooden seat with hand-carved detailing. The swivel seat allows the user to adjust the height depending on the height of the counter.
