If your design preference leans towards the classic, choose a set of Parisian bistro-style bar chairs to add warmth to a clean, white space. Bistro furniture works well in farmhouse homes or coastal-inspired residences.
Looking for something quirky and multifunctional for a counter that doubles up as a workspace by day? Go for a bar stool with a modern black metal frame and a comfy padded seat in a fun fabric, such as bright blue corduroy. Carry this colour through the space in eye-catching artwork or accent accessories.
Bar chairs needn’t be used only in entertaining spaces. If you’re decorating an office and want seating in various heights, luxury bar chairs that swivel are a good choice as they’re both serious looking and playful. Place them beside a counter that serves as an informal meeting space or beside a laptop station. They also work well in a creative space, such as a studio.
These stools can also be moved around, so keep more than your entertainment area in mind when choosing yours. For example, a leather bar stool can elevate the look of a minimalist kitchen and also take pride of place in the bedroom as a vanity stool beneath a mirror and beside a dresser.
