Who doesn’t love the classic X-backed seats? Add a set of these metal versions to your bar table and every day will feel like you live in a French restaurant. Bonus points if you add the string lights.Available on BedbathandBeyond.
The Century chair by Marcel Wanders is produced in two versions: a lounge armchair and a dining chair. Both versions are equally elegant, with black, sculptural feet that bend backward and a short and classy backrest.
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.
Whether you’re looking for kitchen bar stools, actual bar bar stools, nook bar stools, or something else entirely, here are 24 things to consider that, we hope, will help you narrow down your search. Don’t worry. The perfect bar stool is out there, and you’ll find it.
Bar stools are really versatile and often preferred for spaces such as the kitchen. But did you know there’s more than one type of bar stool? In fact there are four. The short or table-height stools are anywhere between 16” to 23” tall and they’re a good alternative to the standard dining chairs. You can safely use them for the breakfast nook.
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.
