60 Great Bar Stool Ideas – How To Pick The Perfect Design
Having a bar or an island in the kitchen is pretty much a must. It’s a very functional thing to have, plus it gives you the opportunity to incorporate bar stools in your design and they’re one of those elements that elevate the style in a room. There are numerous types of bar stools you can choose from and the decision has to be based on the overall style of the décor. So let’s see how different types of bar stools integrate in different kitchen decors.

The industrial style goes very well with the whole kitchen concept because it’s based on materials such as stainless steel, iron, rough wood, etc. and these materials are often incorporated in the kitchen décor no matter what, especially because of all the appliances. So industrial-style bar stools often feature simple designs with metallic structures and wooden seats, sometimes being all-metal.

Leather furniture is usually something you incorporate in a traditional interior décor, unless the design is unusual and innovative, in which case it can easily fit in a more modern space. In the case of leather bar stools, the designs are not as versatile as for other material combinations. They tend to look more robust and they usually fit well in spaces that have an overall traditional and elegant design.

After going through two styles dominated by rough designs and rather bland colors we now redirect our attention towards the mid-century modern designs which incorporate a little bit more colors, bold shades as well as more delicate and subtle looks. They maintain a timeless design and have a classical allure but they also tend to be more graphical and modern. When talking about bar stools, this translates as sleek and simplistic creations often featuring dynamic colors in order to become a focal point in the overall décor.

Suspended bar stools.
We’re now going to step away from all the different styles and talk a little about suspended bar stools. They don’t exactly fit in a particular style because they can have all sorts of designs and yet their defining feature will be the fact that they’re suspended. It’s a characteristic that can be applied to modern and contemporary furniture but also to traditional and even rustic or industrial pieces. One of the defining characteristics of these pieces is the fact they they are space-saving and very functional.
Modern bar stools.
Modern furniture can be characterized in many different ways. Most often, it’s the simplicity or minimalism that makes it stand out. But modern designs can also be reinterpretations of the classics with a twist. This selection of bar stools incorporates a variety of modern influences and details. Although they have a modern look, they can also easily be incorporated in various other types of decors. For example, you can create an interesting contrast of styles by using them in a traditional kitchen.

Fabric, as opposed to leather, tends to be a little bit more versatile. It comes in many different textures, not to mention the array of colors and patterns. Also, fabric is easier to work with. Fabric-upholstered furniture, in this case bar stools, make a space feel more casual and thus more comfortable and inviting. But their rusticity can be toned down by incorporating various accessories into their design or by pairing them with certain types of furniture or certain colors and materials.

Wicker bar stools.
Wicker is usually used to manufacture outdoor furniture. However, it can be just as beautiful and charming when used indoors. We have prepared a selection of wicker bar and kitchen island stools which bring a very nice rustic but also tropical feel into the room.
