Thanks for your inquiry, William!
I am not certain but think those bar stools may be from a store called NOOD - New Objects of Desire.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Full-height pull-out cabinets on the back wall and storage under both sides of the island provide enough storage while maintaining the kitchen's clean and minimal look.The walnut island blends beautifully with the rich flooring, and a white quartz countertop on the island offers a durable work surface.Refrigerator: 42-inch Sub-Zero

The painting in the corner of this room appears to set the color scheme for the kitchen and whatever other rooms are in that same area (carrying the colors into other rooms). The brown floors would normally stick out also, but the back splash dims it down a bit.
