I love the swirly detail on the back of these, as well as the comfortable cushions underneath. The black is a nice contrast to the light kitchen.
This kitchen island is enormous and can accommodate at least six of these perfect striped chairs. If you have little ones, I highly recommend Scotchgard or darker colors.
These sleek white stools blend right in with the white island.
I love the mix of very tailored traditional style and these vintage industrial stools. Paired with the white island, they keep the room from looking too matchy-matchy.
Bar stools can serve as sculpture. I'm not sure how well I'd fit into this one though- it might be diet motivation!
Consider backless stools that tuck completely under the island if you want to gain some more floor space.
There's a cushy version of the tuck-under backless stools.
Rattan stools add texture to a room.
I like that the backs of these are still lower than the island's height. However, don't let anyone try to lean back too far in theses!
I love the modern metal next to the reclaimed wood!
This kitchen has such a nice combination of textures. The neutral palette keeps it from looking like a hodge-podge, and the stools are perfect.
The circles on these metal stools are fun to add into a mix when you want to play with geometry.
Another great mix of traditional and modern.
These have such a striking shape, and the wood is gorgeous. I want to call them Shaker, but I'm not 100% sure I know what I'm talking about!
More simple design that stands out. Again, I have no idea if I can call it Shaker, but I want to. Can someone please educate me? :)
Footrests are great - your legs can get uncomfortable and fall asleep when they are dangling for too long.
So sleek, and a fun pop of color. Again, I feel like they would make my butt look big, but they are very cool!
The color here was a bold choice and I like it. These look comfy.
Oh how I love Mrs. Limestone's kitchen! The blue vintage stools are such a nice touch.
I am crazy about these French-designed, 1930's aluminum stools. So much so that my dining room has the matching cafe chairs.
Here are the vintage industrial stools in another setting. It's funny, I've used this kitchen facing 180 degrees the other way, but I never knew what a great view it had. I'm very envious of those windows.
Bertoias are a great choice for Modern fans.
I love the curves of these stools.
Cowhide - Yee Haw!
Now here are the comfortable chairs. The yellow seat cushions give this kitchen a sunny disposition.
Here is the bar stool that made me start looking for more. It is possible to coordinate your bar stools with other chairs in your kitchen. These are all versions of the Navy Chair.
