10 Great Barstools

Bars are a great use of space and a nice way to interact between kitchen and living space. So the first and most important furnishing once the bar/island is on the floorplan is the barstool! It’s a difficult piece to design as you need a perch for feet, now elevated from the floor, so the ‘seat + 4 legs’ design is out. Here are ten very stylish and elegant solutions to your central space!

Modernica. Dowel Bar Stool Swivel Base. $475.

BluDot. Knicker Barstool. $299.

Restoration Hardware. Vintage Toldedo Chair.  $375.

Horchow. Wood & Iron Barstool. $479.

Knoll. Bertoia Barstool. $799

My friend, Erin, found these and just in time for my Barstools post!! These are by Sawkille, a contemporary artisans group out of the Catskills. They are earthy and minimal – just the right idea when you need a clean textured look for your space. Price upon request 845 876 2228.

There must be 10 different designers who make this style. This one is the Black Adjustable Barstool by Design Studios. While many are offered, they are not all equal. Be careful to look into quality when buying a style that is widely knocked off. $198. [on sale at Gilt for $165]

Urban Wood Goods. Reclaimed Wood and Steel Industrial Styled Bar Stools. $135 for 25″ tall. $155 for 30″ tall.

Emeco. Hudson Barstool. $905.

Target. Milton-B Swivel Barstool. $175
