Smart, Sassy and Social: Bar Stool Decor

Counter stools are the finishing touch for an open kitchen design with a  furniture-style island or peninsula. Choose stools that blend with both kitchen and living decors to reinforce your open design. A bonus – when you use the counter for serving, you can tuck the stools around your living area for casual guest seating.

In the kitchen pictured above, counter stools are upholstered in a gray and white print that reinforces the two-tone cabinetry and transitional-style pendant lighting.

Wicker whimsy

Colonial style wicker-seat counter stools offer a warm welcome to family and guests. The peninsula, island and end cabinets, all trimmed with decorative door panels and ogee toekick molding, are beautiful examples of furniture-style cabinet design.

Soft gray, a touch of sophistication

Neatly upholstered in gray, these counter stools blend seamlessly into the kitchen decor. Cambridge raised-panel cabinets, finished in Painted Harbor gray, are the perfect base for the transitional interior design scheme.


Compact seating: the backless bar stool

For a slim profile, consider backless bar stools. Simple yet charming, backless stools with webbed seats, softly lit by contemporary linen pendants, offer a warm invitation to have a seat.
