If your bar stool area is nearby other chairs, you might consider coordinating the seating throughout the space. This isn’t to say you should run out to the nearest furniture store and buy a set of identical-except-for-height chairs and stools. But you could consider keeping one style element similar for consistency, such as the wicker seats in this photo.
A similarly well-balanced décor is featured here. This open floor plan uses a long kitchen island as a divider between the spaces and the black bar stools emphasize this barrier. They match the counter top and the accent wall.

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.
Counter-height tables are less common and their style is more casual. This allows them to create a more relaxed atmosphere which could be good for certain types of spaces. Also, they work well in small spaces since they appears to be taking less space because of their height and shape. You can use them in the kitchen where they would double as prep spaces.
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.
