An easy way to freshen up a kitchen is with new barstools. Especially if you have an island or peninsula that is a focal point or is the natural viewpoint when looking from an adjoining room, these three or four seats can really help set the tone.
I'm loving sleek shapes and natural textures and grains, especially pretty against painted cabinets, marble, or tile. consider adding a custom cushion or reupholstering in anything from leather to vintage kilim rugs, to shibori indigo. But these beauties I'm loving right off the truck ;)
Above, the NK T Stool from Nickey Kehoe, $2,250.
Next, the Bayley Bar Stool from Rejuvenation, $449.
Also named the Bailey Bar Stool, from Ballard Designs, $299.
The beautiful Elysian Barstool from Lawson Fenning, $1,150.
No matter what your style, you'll be able to find a barstool design to fit your aesthetic, these are just a few of my current favorites. Happy shopping!
