What Houzz contributors are saying:
2. Bistro, or RivieraThis French cafe-inspired style is a great choice for weaving color and a fresh perspective through your kitchen. Here, the stools help tie all the kitchen finishes together. The frames speak to the flooring, and the seats echo the whites found in the cabinetry and island countertop.
6. Upscale counter stools. There are so many options when it comes to kitchen counter seating that there’s no reason to stick with plain bar stools, unless you want to. Try classic bistro stools (like the ones shown here), sculptural wooden stools or sleek Lucite ones.Also notice the pendant lights in this kitchen — if you have a long counter, placing a row of three large-scale pendant lights above is a great way to bring focus to the space. Glass pendants like the ones shown here are elegant and maximize light.How to do kitchen-island pendant lights right Stools: Riviera, Serena & Lily
