Even though the stools with backs win when it comes to comfort there’s more to consider when choosing a style for a particular space. Backless stools have their charm too. For instance a lot of people prefer them for the simple fact that they look sleek and beautiful and that they don’t clutter the space visually. Backless bar stools are also practical in the sense that you can tuck them under the counter to save space. So now that you know a little about both types and that you’ve also seen some wonderful designs which one do you prefer?
Green Gables Furniture has this Steel Traditions Crestone Swivel Barstool that features leather seat. Lapped seams across the cushion add strength and the old-fashioned steel base has a characteristic round foot rail. A little color goes a long way in enhancing the wood of these rustic bar stools. Perfect for a rustic industrial or casual living space these seats from Horizon Home have a subtle streak of green that adds a reclaimed feel to the pieces.
Some bar stool designs are more suitable for small spaces than others. A good example is the Lucy counter stool which with its sleek and versatile design can seamlessly integrate in small kitchens as well as in other areas where space is limited.
Counter-height tables are less common and their style is more casual. This allows them to create a more relaxed atmosphere which could be good for certain types of spaces. Also they work well in small spaces since they appears to be taking less space because of their height and shape. You can use them in the kitchen where they would double as prep spaces.
Looking for bar stools that are a little more straight forward? With no nonsense squares like these they’ll fit in small corners and can be pushed away under the table when you’re done using them. Available on Amazon.
The design of this kitchen island evenly divides the space between the three Twist swivel stools. Also the design of the stools allows them to have adjustable height and this pretty much solves both problems we’ve discussed so far. But when the island has an undulating design such as in this case the irregular shape makes it difficult to evenly distribute the stools and to offer each one the same type of comfort.
