The fabric is called China Seas (AC302-16), from Quadrille and the stools are by Altura Furniture.

Check out the abstract zebra tribal print on the barstools.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Kitchen Storage: Where to Keep Grandma's Stuffing Recipe?
When cookbooks are stored near an eat-in bar, it makes it super convenient to work up those weekly meal plans.
Scheer & Co. added this to The Well-Concealed Kitchen
You don't often see a lot of books in the kitchen. The low bookcase gives this space a library feel.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Spice Up Your Kitchen Island With Color
You can even think of your island storage as an opportunity for adding character and color with books, baking bowls, and favorite accents. Have a colorful kitchen island? We'd love to see a photo!

11. Cookbooks. Consider a bookshelf close to a working area. You may want to create easy access for frequently used books or recipe folders. A shelf next to a center island, for instance, is practical and good looking.
