Maggie Lopez March 29, 2020 Bar Stools
Few pieces of furniture are more frustrating to spend money on than items that come in multiples. Sure, it's easy to justify a large one-off splurge on a quality sofa or a statement chandelier, but furniture sets like barstools quickly add up. One $300 barstool might seem reasonable, but when you consider that you'll need a matching set of four, it suddenly becomes a costly buy.
Kitchens are the heart of our homes. Whether you're prepping ingredients for a family meal or entertaining guests, the kitchen is where people congregate. Having the right kitchen bar stool and chair options is crucial.
The shape and material of the base of a stool can change everything. Try the industrial or modern country contrast of a sleek metal base with a wood seat. Wood legs with a tweedy cloth seat feel chic and mid-century modern, in the same way wood plays up the natural textural elegance of leather and bonded leather. Bringing dark wood-and-leather stools into sleek, tile-and-steel contemporary space to add a sense of texture and elements-interplay is also in keeping with the new trend of “honest” natural materials design.
If you decide to cover your bar stool with leather, keep in mind that leather is a natural product made from the skin of cattle. As such, there will be variations in color and texture just as there are variations in texture and color of your own skin. Generally, the more expensive the leather, the more of these imperfections you will see. The "Cheaper" leathers used in furniture are often "corrected" leather. Corrected leathers are treated, sanded and dyed to remove these imperfections. Many are even stamped with a simulated grain pattern. Corrected leathers will most often match very closely from one piece to the next and may actually look more artificial than many vinyls! Consider it a unique trait if you happen to get a barbed wire scratch mark or even a "brand" mark. Many people pay extra for these imperfections that prove the authenticity of their leather.
For starters, consider the decor and style of your kitchen. Is it modern or traditional? Do you want bar stools that will blend with or complement the room's other furnishings. Alternatively, would you prefer a style, material or color that will provide a contrast or a pop of color?
There's more to ensuring your stool makes sense in your space than height. You'll also want to consider bar stool sizes. Ideally, it's good to have enough distance between each stool to accommodate counter height stool dimensions and also bar height stool dimensions.
