After reading today’s post, you’re sure to see bar stools in a different light. But we’re not talking about any old stool; these stools are straight from design heaven. High or bar stools are an item of furniture that is often overlooked. In fact, you might not even have one at home. So, we’re going to show you what you’re missing if you don’t yet own this special piece of furniture. As soon as you climb onto one, you’ll see your home from a fresh and more relaxed perspective.

The silver lining to any bar

There’s no need to overdo it – add just two or three high stools to the corner of the living room as the perfect complement to your bar. Hey presto, you’ll feel like you’re in your very own lounge bar. They’ll automatically give your home that elegant touch that sets it apart and create the perfect spot to chill out and socialise. Your guests will be so pleasantly surprised by this original nook in your home that they might not want to leave! Plus, if you add a little music to the mix, you’ll go down as the host of the year.

Running late?

If you’re one of those people who’s always behind schedule, this is the solution for you. A peninsula or a breakfast bar in the kitchen is very practical. Eating sitting down is a top priority but you’ve also got responsibilities to see to at the same time. Never fear! The stool is here to solve that very problem. It’s ideal for a quick breakfast before heading to work or rustling up supper before a night on the tiles. Not only will it save you time, but think of the space you’ll save, too! Simply tuck your stools under the island or store them in the corner for next time. What more could you ask for?

All that’s left is for you to pick a model that matches your style: wooden stools look great with rustic, Scandi [RR1] and boho styles while predominantly metal models go well with industrial or minimalist decors. The list of colours, materials and shapes is endless. Why not give it a go?
