Love your kitchen! My kitchen is ivory as well, I went ivory barstools and a dark brown patterned leather seat. My thought was I can add color with rugs and decorative items.

Like the idea of red, but it will be a major focal point-do you want your guests to walk in and say" nice red stools"? I think it might take away from the rest of the kitchen. How about wood with red upholstery?

a roman shade with red would look nice too!

Here's an idea in a similar kitchen - this stool comes in lots of colors and with backs

ooh - Peter279 - you've given me EKE - Extreme Kitchen Envy!

I like Paulette's advice. Keep in mind too that too large of a chair, say with arms - might block traffic flow too much.

Also, you could do a decorative valance above your existing shade in a nice pattern that includes red.

I definitely think modern red stools would look the best. They don't have to be the focal point, just a fun pop of color and modern style. What about the Wire Base stool from West Elm with red top http://www.westelm.com/products/wire-base-stool-h309/?pkey=cmarket-furniture-market&cm_src=market-furniture-market||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_--_- or the Ribbon Bar stool in Tomato? http://www.westelm.com/products/ribbon-bar-stool-counter-stool-tomato-s143/?pkey=cdining-chairs-seating&cm_src=dining-chairs-seating||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_--_-

Just wanted to add that I looked for stools for months. I needed a 27 inch height. These stools are very comfy and there are several wood finishes and tons of leather and fabrics options :-)

How about a bertoia wire chair with red seating? The metal will match your appliances
