What Houzz contributors are saying:
Decide on the proper height. You'll need to allow enough legroom for people to sit comfortably, and the only way to get it right is by measuring. Determine the distance from the floor to the underside of your countertop or other surface, then subtract between 10 and 14 inches. The result is your target stool height.
Complement and contrast with wood. These Cherner bar stool legs provide just the right amount of curve and contrast to the angular floating cabinets and kitchen countertop surface. "The Cherner chairs reference the natural world in both form and material. Their lustrous brown color and feminine stance appeal to the eye and juxtapose against the masculine lines of the kitchen island," says home stager Robin DeCapua. The curves of the tanned stool legs also echo the curves of the porcelain vases and chandelier crystal. From this perspective the stools look like three women with their backs turned, standing side by side. "The curves and streamlined nature of the wood add a sense of lightness to the space and complement the hard lines of the contemporary kitchen," says interior designer Allison Jaffe.
